Exclusive: Indoctrination in Public Schools Leads to Rise in Home Schooling

It’s that time of year again as parents scramble to pick up the necessary supplies to send with their children as they are bussed off to the public school (I call them government indoctrination centers) across town. Unlike years ago, when our parents sent us to school with a notebook for each class, a couple of pencils and our lunch money, today’s child will lug clear or mesh backpacks filled with such necessities as liquid anti-bacterial hand soap, boxes of baby wipes and, in the case of Hermitage Elementary School in Hermitage, Arkansas, their first graders will supply two rolls of paper towels and a 50 count pack of clear sheet protectors each. 
 
The lists this year at our local schools here in Arkansas for each student include a wide variety of products necessary for your child to complete his or her school work. I have not quite understood the need for a kindergarten boy to provide a box of gallon Ziploc bags or a kindergarten girl to provide a box of pint sized Ziploc bags (brand names only, please) or a second grade boy to provide a package of construction paper while second grade girls provide a pack of white computer paper. Then again, in my “old fashioned” view of preparing for school, I cannot fathom why each first grade child must provide a package of red ink pens. Perhaps we parents are supplying the school system with supplies for all – communal property to be used by those who supply and those who do not (aka Communism/Marxism)? Eastside Elementary School in Warren, Arkansas, has the issue under control. For a fee of $17, their third graders will be provided with a “packet of supplies” from the school store, obviously to ensure each child’s supplies are identical. We cannot have one child with a blue pencil while another child has a boring, cheaper yellow one, now can we? The directive has been given, right down to what color notebook your child can own.  More from FamilySecurityMatters.org

Home Schooling – It’s Not Just for Christians Anymore

By:  Renee E. Taylor

 

As a home schooling mom, I welcome any and all into the fold who realize that the government- run education system is a dismal failure that is not turning out the “best and the brightest,” but rather global warming-embracing, would-be Socialists with little in the way of math, reading and communication skills. The news this week has been saturated with stories of teenagers committing various acts of violence against fellow students and even a bus driver. Third graders plotted to kill their teacher. 

 

Jesus was expelled from the school system long ago, yet while the United States is at war with radical Islam, Allah was welcome with open arms.  More from Family Security Matters

California Schools: Sliding Down the Slope to Indoctrination?

Renee E. Taylor

During World War II, my mother, at the time in elementary school, was sent to boarding school in Czechoslovakia when it became too dangerous to live in Vienna.  In class one day, the teacher asked “Whom do you hate the most?”  My mom raised her hand, planning to say “Hitler”.  Mom wasn’t called on, but a good friend of hers was.  The other little girl said “Hitler”; my mother never saw that little girl again, although Mom kept her friend’s photo with her until she died a couple of years ago.

No one in America would believe that this could happen here; but if it happened in Europe, we would be naïve to think it impossible.  What concerns me is that I see the slippery slope of indoctrination not only beginning, but continuing, in the American school system – the same slope that so many slid down to rock bottom in Europe – and I will therefore fight to the death my right to home school.  More from Family Security Matters
