Welcome to The Lion: Essential Content for the American Family, Educators, and Leaders

We are living in tumultuous times. American culture seems confused, even schizophrenic. Culture is never uniform, but within the nation today, contradictory factions are growing. Parents are unsure what kind of future awaits their children, and they fear too many, even their own, will be swept up in a small but raging torrent of political and ideological progressivism.

We need moral courage informed by trustworthy information. Enter The Lion. One of nature’s most majestic creatures, the lion is often a symbol of strength and courage. As a publication, The Lion embodies these ideals.

The Lion is an initiative of the Herzog Foundation, and it carries articles covering a wide range of issues facing American families and culture, especially related to the education of children. In covering these topics, articles will also touch on aspects of parenting, family life, faith, government, and other relevant cultural topics.

We aim to produce timely, critical, practical, must-read content for families, educators, and leaders. Our articles offer important, compelling perspectives about the topics they address, although perspectives found here are not necessarily those of our staff or the Foundation. Disagreement is welcome and an essential part of growing in our understanding. If you find yourself compelled to respond—positively or negatively—let us know. Perhaps you, too, can contribute your perspective.

Our contributors, the vast majority of whom are from outside our organization, are top-notch and include parents, teachers, administrators, government leaders, and scholars. You’ll find some of their writing in the nation’s top magazines and newspapers. Some of our authors research and write on their subjects full-time. Others are practitioners who spend their time in the trenches. We need to hear from both.

The Lion carries four to five articles each week. We love our daily readers. But we also offer an easy-to-digest weekly newsletter with article excerpts. Don’t miss a single one. Click on the button below and sign up today!
