Schools Are Asking 5th Graders WHAT??

The other day, one of my subscribers messaged me and expressed her concern over a survey her daughter had to complete at school last week. She included a link to an article about it. I was horrified.
It seems that lately schools have been working at a fever pitch to not only indoctrinate children, but to sexualize them.

Parents, if your kids are in school, you have to be vigilant. Better yet, if at all possible, save them and get them out of school NOW. Do you honestly think they’ll get any better? Experience tells us they’ll only get worse.

Public School or Government School? Which Is More Accurate?

Ever since the State of the Union Address, there has been a raging debate going on over whether taxpayer-funded schools are public schools or government schools.

I actually was surprised at the reaction of people to President Trump’s reference to them as “government schools.” (Some people are downright offended by it.) I’ve heard of them referred to as government schools for years, and I thought it was simply synonymous with “public schools.”

Aren’t they the same thing? Does it matter what they’re called? After pondering it for awhile, I’ve realized the answer to that is: It’s complicated.

In today’s video, after much thought on the matter, I delve into which term is actually more accurate.

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.
