John Taylor Gatto on Schooling and the New World Order

How many of you knew that John Taylor Gatto was awake to secret societies and the NWO?

Today on my channel, I shared some more of his wisdom.

John Taylor Gatto’s Stark Warning Against Common Core

As I was reading the essays in the back of The Underground History of American Education yesterday, I realized that not only was John Gatto awake to the history of compulsory schooling, he was awake to a lot of things.

Take Common Core for example. Mr. Gatto’s criticism of it goes far beyond the faulty academics of it and gets to the root of the problem – its purpose.

Schools Don’t Teach Critical Thinking. Here’s Why.

“Critical thinking” is one of the education system’s favorite buzz phrases, particularly since the introduction of Common Core. Ironic, isn’t it?

The problem is, the more we see critical thinking mentioned, the less we see evidence of its use in society. Why?? Well, the answer to that is simple. The education system does NOT teach critical thinking, despite its claims, and there’s a reason for that.

Scientism, Hypothetical History, and Homeschooling

Have you ever heard of scientism? Scientism is when science becomes a religion for some, and when certain topics become taboo to question. It’s when scientists declare “the science is settled” when in fact, true science is NEVER settled.

It’s when social media platforms shut down certain subjects in an effort to suppress debate.

It’s when scientific theories that have never been proven are pushed by authorities and mainstream science as being 100% true.

Unfortunately, most of the science being taught to children today falls under this category. Even homeschoolers aren’t always safe.

The same holds true for what I call hypothetical history. There’s much about history, especially ancient history, that we really don’t have concrete answers to, yet we are consistently having only one point-of-view impressed upon us – that which is most convenient to the status quo.

As homeschool parents, it is up to us to teach our children the critical thinking skills that are sorely lacking in the world today. It’s up to us to teach our children to seek out and weigh ALL evidence, not just that which is handed to us.

In today’s world, this has become more important than ever.

Are you up to the task?

AR Reading Is Garbage and Common Core Is a Joke

Yesterday I gained some personal insight into AR Reading and Common Core math.

It wasn’t pretty.

Christian Kids Need a Christian Education

Today I’m going to be upfront about something a lot of my fellow believers don’t want to hear:

Traditional Schooling Is Nothing More Than “Educational” Multitasking

Did you ever notice how everyone today seems to be singing the praises of multitasking? Articles, blogs, and books are completely dedicated to the “art” of doing several things at once as if it were actually a good thing.

I beg to differ.

Gone are the days of considering multitasking to be something as simple as answering the phone or changing the baby’s diaper while making dinner. If only that were the case. Continue reading “Traditional Schooling Is Nothing More Than “Educational” Multitasking”

A Must-Follow Reading Plan for Every New Homeschool Parent

I’ve been thinking. If there was one thing I could change about the beginning of our homeschool journey…. okay… strike that. (Because, unfortunately, there’s way more than one thing I’d change.) Okay, let’s rephrase that… one of the things I wish I had done as a new homeschool parent was to take the time to read.

Seems simple enough, right? So simple, in fact, that you may be wondering why I now feel it would have been so important for me then.

I’m going to tell you why.  Continue reading “A Must-Follow Reading Plan for Every New Homeschool Parent”
