Man covering mouth (censorship)A conservative youth organization continues to see an uptick in traffic to its Campus Bias Tip Line as students at all levels of education are exposed to radical ideology in what one analyst calls "a major battle in the culture war."

Kara Zupkus of Young America's Foundation (YAF) says her organization has received "hundreds and hundreds" of tips since COVID began last year.

"I think a part of it is the fact that everything's online right now, so it's a lot easier for students to gain … video or audio of their professors going off the rails in class, saying crazy things, and discriminating against conservative students," Zupkus submits.

One specific area where YAF has seen an uptick involves instances of critical race theory being pushed in colleges, high schools, and even on kids in elementary schools.

"It's definitely concerning," says Zupkus. "We have kept busy exposing all these tips and holding these schools accountable, and we've been really glad to see kind of the reaction and the reform that schools have taken from the pressure."

Zupkus adds that YAF can help protect the identify of any tipster who wishes to remain anonymous.

'Freedom of Speech' sign held upAnother example of the radical ideology to which students are being exposed is in New York City, where a private, church school has begun distributing a 12-page inclusive language guide that advises students and staff to not use terms such as "mom" and "dad."

The Epoch Times reports Grace Church School, an Episcopal school, says the guide, which calls "traditional family" an outdated term, was distributed as part of an effort to make the campus more welcoming and inclusive.

Christian author and commentator Janice Crouse says this is another battle of the cancel culture.

Crouse, Janice (CWA)"The thing that I think is most troubling about it is by not identifying people's relationships, this is a major battle in the cultural war against the nuclear family," she asserts.

Encouraging students to not use the terms "mom" and "dad" is, according to Crouse, counterproductive and a recipe for dysfunctional families.

"If you just say, 'That's a man' [or] 'That's a woman,' you're not saying that there are roles for fathers and roles for mothers," she tells One News Now.

The Epoch Times also reports that the head of the school, George Davison, says vacations are designated by seasons rather than Christian holidays.
