Bus Tour Exposes Indoctrination in Public Schools
September 1, 2010
WACO, Texas, (christiansunite.com) -- Touring the United States in a school bus, filmmaker Colin Gunn hopes to inform Americans about the indoctrination he says is taking place in public schools. Gunn will take his wife and seven children from Waco, TX to Boston, MA, talking with educators, historians and everyday Americans about the problems with public schools. The month-long tour, which begins on August 31st, will be made into a documentary film later this year.
Gunn contends that public school curriculum is antagonistic to Christianity, promotes Darwinian propaganda and socialist, Marxist agendas. He considers it ironic that conservatives send their children to a school system that undermines their values. He says, "We now are facing all these problems in America -- high taxation, welfare dependency, government debt -- and as Christians and conservatives we have to see we can't solve those problems until we solve the public schooling problem."
Concerned about the effect of public education on future generations, Gunn decided to embark on the 3,000 mile bus tour as a means of engaging conservatives on these issues. He hopes that his seminars during the tour, and the subsequent film, will cause conservatives to rethink the government school system entirely.
"Conservatives should know that capitalism or the free market will bring the highest quality goods and services at the cheapest price. It's always amazing to hear conservatives support the public school system when you know that system will bring the worst product at the highest price."
The "Indoctrination Bus Tour" will visit key locations related to public education, including Dayton, TN, site of the famous 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial; the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY; Washington, DC; New York, NY; and Boston, MA, the birthplace of public education. The Gunn family will be joined on the tour by Gunn's fellow producer, Joaquin Fernandez, and a crew prepared to interview various national leaders and average Americans. The producers will be "live blogging" during the tour so supporters can follow their daily progress.
Colin Gunn is an award-winning producer/director and accomplished animator. Originally from Hamilton, Scotland, Gunn now lives in Waco, Texas with his family.
