A state ruling in CA sent shock and fear through the hearts of homeschoolers in that state this week. And rightly so. In short, an appellate court ruled that only parents with credentials can home educate their children. The ruling is being appealed in the Supreme Court, and thankfully, Schwarzenegger vowed to do whatever he had to do to ensure parents’ right to homeschool.
In light of what John Taylor Gatto was saying in the recent youtube video I posted, it is unthinkable that a parent’s right to choose his child’s education could be threatened. It is a basic constitutional right in question.
And yet, the attack on homeschooling is understandable in every sense, when one understands the ulterior motive of the state–to engineer state-slaves.
If you don’t think that a socialistic current is running viciously underneath the public education system, you better wake up and smell the coffee.
Homeschooling dares to allow parents to raise children who think outside the box–the classroom box, the curriculum box, and the social box. It allows parents to transfer their values to their children–there’s a novel idea–and to be in control of their experiences, of what they’re reading, studying, hearing and seeing. And there are actually some of you–Christian parents, reading this right now and feeling uneasy. Because you have been told that a parent shouldn’t have so much control. And worse yet, you’re convinced that the government needs this control!
Homeschooling is a huge threat to the state’s tidy little program for mass-producing docile, compliant, socialistic citizens. (And all you public-school graduates who feel you did not conform to the state’s agenda–calm down…I am one too. Some of us slip through only partially brainwashed–but it’s the exception, not the rule. And we still must spend the rest of our lives unlearning our public school dogma to some degree.)
In the words of Voddie Baucham…
