Progressive activists seek to expand sex education in schools across America to include topics such as sexual orientation and gender identity. Their proposed curriculum also promotes abortion.

On today’s episode of “The Daily Signal Podcast,” we listen in on The Heritage Foundation’s virtual event Wednesday, the Protecting Children in Education Summit. Participants break down proposed leftist curriculum and address how Americans can stand against the sexualization of children.

We’ll hear from Irene H. Ericksen, senior research analyst at the Institute for Research & Evaluation; Monica Cline, a former sex educator with Planned Parenthood who founded the group It Takes a Family; and Mary Hasson, the Kate O’Beirne fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Serving as moderator for the discussion is Jonathan Butcher, senior policy analyst at Heritage’s Center for Education Policy.

We also cover these stories:

  • President Donald Trump announces a historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
  • Unemployment claims fell below 1 million for the first time since March, according to the Labor Department.
  • Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says we could see the worst fall in history if Americans don’t continue to follow CDC guidelines to fight COVID-19.
