I think most of you know that Harvard is at it again. I debated for a couple days about whether or not to address it because I had already recorded a video about their anti-homeschooling summit they have scheduled, but in the end, I realized that we need to be as vocal as we can be.
The thing is, if someone dislikes homeschooling, fine. But these people are trying to have it BANNED. That, my friends, is not okay. That is tyranny.
There have been a lot of great responses to this one-sided article. Here is my (rather passionate) addition.
Homeschooling advocates, take heed – the number of groups and individuals bent on destroying our homeschooling freedom are on the rise and are more active than ever.
I find it highly ironic that this summit is being planned while ALL students are home. I also find it ironic that just a few years ago, Business Insider published an article about homeschooling bring the new path to Harvard.
We can no longer just sit back and shake our heads in exasperation. We need to DO something. We need to be vocal advocates for our children. I fear if we don’t, Huxley’s Brave New World will become reality much sooner than we thought.
Spread the word. The article I highlight in this video has an email for anyone who has questions about the summit. If you are a parent who has started homeschooling because of abuse in the school, email them. Let your voices be heard.
It’s time to stand up for our God-given rights. It’s time to act.
Here’s the video I promised the other day when I shared the screenshots from the PSEA advertisement on Instagram. Apparently, YouTube doesn’t agree with what I had to say because they demonetized it before it was even published. Dressing boys in drag is just fine for ads, but standing up for families is controversial. Got it. 🤦♀️
A few days ago, Fox News published an article which pretty much insinuated that all homeschool parents are abusive and need to be monitored. (This was spurred on by the Turpin sentencing.)
As inflammatory as that accusation was, I was even more disturbed by the fact that this news organization interviewed the Coalition for Responsible Home Education, a leftist, anti-homeschooling organization that misleads people into believing they’re a legitimate homeschool non-profit, to back up their claims.
A few days ago, I happened to see a screenshot of some back-to-school advice that someone shared. Written specifically for the parents of those registering their kids for kindergarten, I have no reservations about the fact that the author meant well.
I was appalled and astonished to see that this advice proved what I was saying the other week about the schools usurping parental authority This post, on the other hand, is suggesting that you hand it over willingly.
