Big Tech has sought to protect the U.S. education system from criticism around topics including critical race theory, transgender ideology and student loan debt. In April 2022, LinkedIn suspended Air Force veteran Gretchen Smith's account for saying student loan forgiveness would be unfair to people who already paid off their loans or didn't go to college. Other education-related posts censored in 2022 include a Twitter suspension of an account that re-posted liberal teachers' gender- and sexuality-related TikTok videos, and a YouTube deletion of a Daily Signal video of a Virginia mom speaking against mask mandates.
