Homeschool academy resources push LGBT agenda

Students on laptopA popular homeschooling academy is subtly promoting the LGBT lifestyle to children through its instructional online videos that have been widely used around the world by homeschool students, as well as by those attending public and private schools.

Even though a large percentage of homeschoolers across the United States are conservative Christians adhering to biblical values when it comes to human sexuality, the Khan Academy has been quietly infusing its subject matter with pro-LGBT content that attempts to influence children to embrace the LGBT lifestyle.

“Some of Khan Academy’s free offerings are laced with a politically correct view of homosexuality,” LifeSiteNews reported. “Math, English and other subjects may seem morally neutral, but they are being used to promote ideas and worldviews having nothing to do with Math or English.”

Learner beware

When examining lessons in the curriculum of one Khan Academy session, the LGBT-friendly material becomes evident.

“The lesson is on ‘Irregular Plural Nouns: from 'f' to 'ves.,'” LifeSiteNews’ Mark Hodges introduced as an example. “The unsuspecting student is told to ‘Choose the correct plural noun to use’ in this sentence: 'Brittany and Sofia went to lunch with their _____ every Saturday.' Khan Academy's ‘correct’ answer reveals the gay agenda behind the English ‘problem’: The only choices are ‘wifes’ or ‘wives.’"

Arthur Schaper, who serves with California Mass Resistance, maintains that the LGBT agenda is being covertly introduced to children by strategically spreading it through numerous disciplines.

"The LGBTQ agenda is forcing recognition of same-sex marriage and transgenderism in core courses of our public education system," Schaper asserted, according to LIfeSiteNews.

In just over a decade since 2006, Salman Khan has turned his educational enterprise into a multimillion-dollar online academy with the goal of revolutionizing education around the world. It is touted across the globe as “free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.”

A vehicle to change the world’s thinking …

Jumping on board with the United Nations, corporate leaders and progressive governments across the globe, Khan Academy is evidently turning its back on conservative users to tout LGBT propaganda that has already infiltrated America’s public schools.

Schaper asserted that the Khan Academy has embraced the LGBT agenda to meet the expectations of numerous corporate and private investors who want the educational resources to incorporate a number of ulterior agendas into the course materials.

"This is proof, once again, that the gay agenda has never been about assuring equality for all," Schaper argued, according to LifeSiteNews. "It's about imposing a destructive agenda on our culture and our society, and is determined to undermine Judeo-Christian values and the United States as a whole. It is anti-family, anti-life and anti-biology."

The normalization of LGBT lifestyles and behaviors has not only been more prevalently seen in public education over the years, but through numerous government programs, athletics and company policies.

"The long-term goal to indoctrinate children has been to normalize these destructive behaviors so that these children – as adults – will not only accept homosexuality and transgenderism as normal parts of life, but fight to ensure their protection," the pro-family advocate continued.

Despite children’s eventual exposure to pro-LGBT educational resources and educators at some point and time, Schaper is optimistic that the younger generation of students will not be easy prey for homosexual activists through their covert curriculum.

"In my view, this elementary academic approach to imposing LGBTQ views onto children will backfire," he forcasted. "The younger generation – Generation Z, born on or after 1998 – is resisting this rigid secularization. Turning the whole LGBTQ agenda into a set of dry homework assignments will only further de-legitimize the movement."

Many educators are becoming savvy to the detrimental effect the promotion and embracing of the homosexual agenda can have on youth.

"Even in ultra-liberal San Francisco, private schools are outpacing government-run public schools, and one can assume that private Catholic or secular education is not going to dabble in social engineering," Schaper informed. "After all, parents expect their children to learn key subjects and succeed in life, not turn into unemployed social justice warriors for the homosexual-transgender lobby."

Losing its focus?

Geared to instruct homeschooled students, the academy had humble beginnings in 2006 when the Harvard and MIT graduate wanted to help educate a family member.

“Khan Academy began when founder, Salman Khan, started tutoring his cousin; initially, through phone calls, and later, videos,” CBN News reported. “Khan eventually turned his tutoring sessions into a successful non-profit.”

Just four years later, it became a multi-million-dollar enterprise, taking in tens of millions of dollars today from some of America’s top corporations.

“By 2010, Khan raised over $3 million and now has garnered some $21 million from donors such as Bill Gates, Netflix founder Reed Hastings and AT&T,” the Christian news source added.

Perhaps getting a bit heady with the praise and financial backing he’s received, Salman Khan is considered a modern-day guru and innovator of educational resources.

“Salman Khan has been called the ‘messiah of math,’ and his free, online Khan Academy has been called the future of education, reaching a mind-blowing 10 million students per month,” Inside Philanthropy divulged. “Of course, it has its share of critics. But one thing it has in abundance is friends in high places.”

Growing by leaps and bound in such a short period of time, the increasing popularity and amount of money being poured into these educational resources is a bit concerning to many – and not just because of its LGBT agenda.

“The Khan Academy has come a long way since it was incorporated in 2008 by retired hedge fund guy Khan, who started it by recording thousands of educational math videos with himself as the teacher,” Inside Philanthropy’s Tate Williams explained. “If you couldn’t tell from the messiah reference, the free online school been insanely hyped, but also drawn skepticism and backlash for undermining credentialed teachers.”

The amount of instructional resources available, compiled with the hundreds of thousands who implement the instruction shows how influential the program is becoming – especially in the United States.

“But the impact Khan is having is impressive, now offering 6,000 instructional videos and 100,000 practice problems in math, biology, physics, chemistry, economics and more,” Williams continued. “Around 350,000 registered teachers also use the videos as classroom aids. The Academy’s staff has also grown, including several computer whizzes, Ph.D-holders, and now, even a few with advanced education degrees.”

Even the world’s richest man is pouring his investment into Khan’s exponentially growing educational empire – most likely to push is own population control agenda.

“[The] Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is one of Khan’s biggest supporters – shocking I know – but the biggest education reformer on the block loves Khan Academy,” the expert on philanthropy noted. “One of its original large supporters, Gates first gave $1.5 million in 2010, but has since poured more than $9 million to the organization, including to carry out Gates’ mission of spreading Common Core standards.”

And the world’s biggest search engine also jumped on board with Khan’s program – most likely seeing it as another springboard to assist in pushing its own progressive agenda.

“Google – another early funder – gave $2 million to the group back in 2010,” Williams pointed out. “Khan Academy also runs on the Google Cloud platform and is participating in – although not receiving financial support from – the company’s $50 million initiative to encourage girls to code.” 

With Bank of America, Oracle and other globally recognized corporations extending a hand to Khan, the academy’s sphere of influence with the younger generation is mind-boggling.

“Khan has grown at an incredible rate in just a few years – no doubt in large part to this team of reform-minded education funders,” Williams impressed. “Now the question is whether its founder's ideas bear fruit and can transform education on the whole, for the better.”

And with the LGBT agenda and other ideologies being inserted into the curriculum, many concerned educators believe that the program will affect children across the globe for the worse.
