‘Whose Children Are They?’ to be released on March 14 nationwide

March 8, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Like a high-octane engine, the parent and teacher revolt against political and sexual indoctrination in public and private schools needs fuel to take it to the next level.

Whose Children Are They? is that fuel.

The groundbreaking documentary will be released nationwide on March 14 in theaters through Fathom Events. Tickets are available to purchase here. Churches, schools or other organizations who want to share this powerful film after the release date can find out how at the Faith Content Network.

Whose Children Are They? is a comprehensive expose of what is actually going on in our government run schools. It will drag into the light the push for indoctrination over education of which most citizens are unaware, and which is often being purposely hidden from parents.” says Parents United founder Deborah Flora, who produced the film with her husband Jonathan, an award-winning Writer and Director. “It is time for good teachers and galvanized parents to stand together for the innocence of children.”

Parents and teachers all over the country are pushing back against lockdowns, mask mandates, Marxist-inspired curricula and explicit sex education.

In Loudoun County, Virginia, Douglas County, Colorado, and beyond, outraged parents are fighting back against critical race theory (CRT), the transgender agenda and “enemies” lists of outspoken parents. In response, the teachers unions (against the will of good teachers) are attempting recalls of many new school boards that parents led the charge in flipping, because they are no longer beholden to their agenda. This parents’ revolution is succeeding and has triggered a political sea change nationwide.

Loudoun parent Xi Van Fleet, who grew up in Maoist Red China, explains in the film how children were systematically alienated from their parents and told that “our real parents are the [Communist] Party and Mao.”

American schools are not far behind, she warns: “Parents are the real parents of children; they’re the ones teaching the children values. But the schools are taking over that role.”

A number of other parents are featured who are appalled at racist messages sent through critical race theory and other “equity” education.

Shawntel Cooper, who is black and has biracial children, points out the absurdity of CRT by asking whether she should tell her children that they are “oppressed” or “the oppressor?”

Theressah Rodriguez, a California mother who with her husband Victor appears in the documentary, says, “We have these union teachers that feel that they have the right to tell an entire class of mostly Hispanic children to look at themselves in the mirror, that they are worthless.”

Several speakers, including Mrs. Flora, explain the difference between “equal opportunity,” which is a noble cause, and educational “equity,” which reinforces racism and requires forced outcomes.

“It trains white children to see themselves as oppressors,” says Cicely Davis, former state director of Blexit Minnesota.“For children of color, they’re taught that they’re victims and that they are born into a system to which they can’t overcome.”

One of the more moving segments features Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was murdered in the Parkland, Florida massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018. He notes that the accused shooter, Nikolas Cruz, had been disciplined 25 times, had posted memes such as “I’m going to be a professional school shooter” on YouTube, and was still allowed to come to school unimpeded.

Other parents, teachers and experts help expose the lurid, X-rated nature of many sex ed programs. Viewers are forewarned about the vivid nature of some of the materials shown.

“When I share with parents about today’s sex education, I tell them I’m so sorry,” says Mrs. Flora. “I’m sorry you have to be exposed to this explicit and graphic material, but we must know what they’re teaching our young children in order for us to protect them.”

Mrs. Flora, a Colorado mother, introduced Sex Ed Transparency legislation to make it easier for parents to see the explicit material to which their children are being exposed. After it was defeated, she determined to get the information directly to the parents through “Whose Children Are They?”

“They’re teaching these kids X-rated sex acts,” says Ellen Graham, a Colorado single mother of a special needs child, during a sequence in which a cartoon little girl is shown commenting on the size of a male sex organ.

Another mother, Kim Brummet, says, “One of the activities was so appalling that I said they surely would never do this. It was a relay [race] of putting condoms on a dildo.”

“Good teachers are against these disturbing lessons,” said Producer Rebecca Friedrichs, founder of For Kids and Country and author of Standing Up to Goliath, which first gave voice to teachers and parents exposing the radical sexualized lessons and racially divisive policies in America’s schools. Mrs. Friedrichs, who taught for 28 years, served as plaintiff in the 2016 U.S. Supreme Court case Friedrichs v. California Teachers’ Association which blazed the trail for ending forced unionization of teachers and government employees.

“‘Whose Children Are They?’ amplifies the voices of parents and teachers who’ve risen up in defense of children and our culture,” says Mrs. Friedrichs. “Draconian COVID-19 school policies, supported by teacher unions, awakened a sleeping giant. ‘Whose Children Are They?’ will help us galvanize our forces and multiply our movement for kids and country, so we can restore our authority and redeem America’s schools.” 

Produced by an all-star production team, “Whose Children Are They?” features brave teachers, emboldened parents and frontline experts who show how schools are corrupting children sexually and indoctrinating them into believing that America is systemically racist, boys can be girls, and that Marxism and socialism are morally superior to free-market economies.

The team also includes Executive Producer Gerald Molen, the Academy Award-winning producer of Schindler’s List and other blockbusters including Jurassic Park, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, Amistad, Twister and Rain Man.

In addition to Mrs. Flora and Mrs. Friedrichs, experts include Dr. Carol Swain, Chicago teacher Joseph Ocol, investigative journalist Alex Newman and Ian Prior of Fight for Schools. American conservative activist Charlie Kirk joins the production team for a discussion right after the film.

“We’re all standing together as one voice to shine a light on the unions’ dark agenda in our schools,” said Mrs. Friedrichs. “Unions have worked for decades to divide us. We will no longer allow that. We’re laboring to restore the sacred Education Triangle: parents, teachers and students working together for excellence.”
