Reason 363: Because You Loose Your Parental Rights If You Don’t

There’s more than one way to skin a cat, as they say. And there’s more than one way to confiscate your children. And I’d add that not all ways are equal in terms of difficulty. Now if the state just came to your house and took your children, we all know that that would be a messy affair, especially when the ballot box still counts for a little something. Suffice it to say that doing this would make the magistrate unpopular.  And then there’s the expense. The state would have to feed and care for millions (?) of children, so they’d have to hire people to do that. So as pragmatism settles out, it has been discovered that the best way to confiscate children is through the institution. That way the state can have the children, and its cake too. And, the parents are content to have their children on the weekend, and a few weeks in the summer, and still bear the expense. And after all, at the end of the day the state gets what it wants, their minds.

Here is a great article by Matt Walsh. He looks at a hiccup that happened in the system when a mother gets the notion that her child is still her’s.

Your Parental Rights Don’t Exist When You Send Your Kid To Public School

The story is based on a child who missed more days than the state allows. (“the state ‘allows‘”. You see? That’s slave thinking.) I love the way Walsh puts it:

You see, according to the compulsory attendance policy at her kid’s public school in Georgia, the district will magnanimously allow a parent to keep their kid home from school up to five times in a year without a doctor’s note. Once they exceed that magically arbitrary fifth “unexcused” absence, every succeeding incident must be specifically prescribed by a medical professional. Even if the parent feels the child should stay home, the school will not allow it unless a doctor agrees. Otherwise, the parent could be thrown in jail, which is a totally reasonable response.

Julie’s son unfortunately made the mistake of getting sick more times than the school allows, and so a warrant was issued for his mom’s arrest.

Keep in mind, this is not a unique or uncommon situation. Julie is only the latest in a long, long, long line of parents who have been violently reminded that we live in a fascist state where liberty is, increasingly, a mere fiction.

It’s a great read. And he does a great job of pointing out the obvious problems with this insanity. But the great thing is, you don’t have to participate in it. And an even greater thing is, neither does your child. And as I’ve said before here, the fact that you still have the liberty to keep your child is nothing short of God’s providence. It’s a miracle. God does provide a way.

Reason 333: Because It’s Legal

It’s nothing short of a miracle that homeschooling is legal. First, there’s the fact that so few do it, especially in the beginning. There was no political consequence to outlawing it, and it was tried in several states, yet all attempts failed. That’s no small thing considering the government’s view on what is taught in most homes. In their view homeschooling is a cauldron of intolerance, bigotry, racism, and every evil phobia conjured up by man in these last days, and those yet to be “discovered”.

But that it’s a miracle doesn’t stop the local magistrates from testing that miracle occasionally. And that’s just what this municipality did:

A couple of notes about this article. First is what I call “slave talk”. Free men are not “allowed” to do things by their government. Slaves of an elite class are “allowed” to do things. Our language reveals deep-rooted thinking that helps our masters to keep us enslaved. So when I read something like this:

The state’s 2nd Appellate District in Los Angeles found that homeschooling is allowed by state law.

I see it as slave talk. A thing may be legal or not, but it is never allowed. The government is, on the other hand, “allowed” to govern in a free society.

Second, are these very astute words from a parent:

The father said the family objected to public school because of the pro-homosexual, pro-bisexual, pro-transgender agenda of California’s public schools, on which WND previously has reported.

“We just don’t want them teaching our children,” he told WND. “They teach things that are totally contrary to what we believe. They put questions in our children’s minds we don’t feel they’re ready for.

“When they are much more mature, they can deal with these issues, alternative lifestyles, and such, or whether they came from primordial slop. At the present time it’s my job to teach them the correct way of thinking,” he said.

There is a father in that house, and that father is protecting his children. My accolades to this man.

Reason 310: Because A Worthy Cause And Public School Are At Odds

There are plenty of worthy causes to be involved in, but chances are, if they are worthy they will also be, not so much thankless as accolade-less.  But if you jump onto one of the popular causes of our day you’re sure to get accolades galore, but at the same time it’s probably a rotten cause. And that’s just what happened here:

Eighth Grader’s ‘White Privilege’ Poem Takes First Place

Nevermind the mindlessness of such self-loathing dribble parroted by this poor child, what I want to see is his mentors, and even him, live up to their words. De-privileging one’s self is much easier than to do what everyone else wants to do, including blacks, which is to “privilege” themselves. Jesus had some great advice for this sort of thing. He said to sell everything you own and give it to the poor. That will definitely de-privilege you. But it’s easier to live the good life and feel guilty about it than it is to actually do something that furthers your cause against your own privilege by making yourself underprivileged, even though doing so would technically be one of the easiest things ever. The only thing required, after the easy task of dumping wealth, is to adopt an anti-social dress code, attitude and ethic, become a sloth, then blame everyone else for your woes. Blacks haven’t cornered the market on this either by the way, but no one’s talking about that. Talk is cheap anyway. And all the while all this talking is going on about what rotten human beings white people are due to their supposed “privileges”, nothing ever gets done about the disadvantages of blacks, which are real. But who cares? This young man is national news because he expressed his self-hatred and white-guilt better than his classmates. He has received his reward in full.

When Jesus said to sell everything and give it to the poor he didn’t stop there. He continued. He said to then come and follow me. You see, the black person is in the shape he’s in, not because of white privilege, but rather because his family has been decimated. And interestingly enough, the same people in the cause that is cheering this poor young liberal on are the same people who played a big part in destroying it. Fatherlessness is a problem wherever and whoever it strikes, and it doesn’t discriminate.

But in the schoolhouse children will be taught that Marxism is the black man’s savior, and the poor privileged white man’s too, and not until an all-powerful government evens things up a bit will it get better for both. But that is a lie, and for anyone who has studied history, or has a clue about the heart and condition of man, knows it’s a lie. And this history will not be taught in school for that very reason. The only way Marxism will help anyone is if they’re part of the power structure. Then they will be helped a whole lot; they’ll be privileged beyond imagination. But everyone else, red, yellow, black and white will be equally poor and miserable with no hope of escape.

As for me, I don’t want my children indoctrinated into a bunch of lies designed to have them turn a few men in government into wealthy little self-proclaimed gods.  I have much higher hopes for them than that. And that’s why I would never, in a million years, send them to an evil institution like the public school system for an “education”.

Reason 306: Because There Are Options And No Options, And You And Your Child Should Know The Difference

Let me start by saying that much more is caught by your children than is taught to them. If you call in sick when you’re not sick in front of your children, you’re teaching them. When you cheat in some way in front of them, you’re teaching them. When you talk bad about your spouse, friend, church or whatever in front of them, you’re teaching them.  And… when you send them to a school that sets aside a week to memorialize sin, you’re teaching them.

But worse, our actions not only teach our children, they teach our grandchildren. Whatever life experience we immerse our children in, that experience will be the basis for normal for them. You send your child to the statist school because that is what is normal. And it’s normal because that’s what you yourself experienced. So as society deteriorates, and as that deterioration is accompanied by increasing despotism, you can expect that your grandchildren will be trained for slavery to the extent that you yourself never imagined.

So let’s look at this article:

San Ramon: LGBT curriculum riles some middle school parents

This is the typical article common today. Parents not comfortable with the speed at which they are asked to change their view of reality are putting up just a little bit of fight. No worries however for those they’re fighting against. Even if the parents don’t buy in 100 percent, they know they already have the children. But there is one thing in the article that I want to focus on, and it’s this:

There is one thing in this article that I want to focus on, and it’s this:

A parent from San Ramon wrote, “Even though there is an opt out, the kids will be discussing it. There is truly no opt out.”

What I want to focus on is the fast one being pulled over parent’s eyes by this whole understanding of “opting out”. But my take is a little different from this parent’s take. In my view the school ought to require parents opt their children in. This would change everything. But that’s exactly why they make you opt out. But the time is close at hand there will be no options at all. More and more schools are continuing the inevitable slide to forcing students in their charge into what can only be described as “re-education” courses for those raised in “Christian” homes. One can only wonder how much longer it will be legal for parents to opt out of the shebang.

But by the providence of God, that option still exists and that’s exactly one parent in the article did by keeping his children home through the whole week of honoring unnatural and sinful behavior. But don’t make the mistake that this same parent did by turning right around and sending your child back to an institution that is just happy as it can be to waller in the rot of sin after the gay days are done. To do such a thing is to teach them. No, keep your child at home for good and teach them in the ways of reality and righteousness.

Reason 303: Because uhhh, The State Is Wasteful?

As I was reading this article:

CA school district mandates yoga for elementary students

… and I couldn’t help but to chuckle at this little passage:

The Foundation spent about $4 million to launch and expand the [Yoga] program in recent years, and district officials proposed to set aside $800,000 to keep it going next school year, a move that prompted outrage from parents who struggle with fundraisers for school science and art expenses, EAGnews reports.

So, in true form to the once (and maybe still) popular bumper sticker:

these “outraged” parents are trying to help the school out with fundraisers.  But the institution sees blowing cash like a drunk sailor who just won the lottery differently, as in it’s-really-really-easy-to-blow-and-waste-other-people’s-money-confiscated-by-force differently.

News flash: The institution is rich beyond your wildest dreams.  Instead of fundraising maybe you should keep your children at home and give them a real education rather than have them  indoctrinated them into Eastern Mysticism, which, apparently, is extremely expensive; either that or the school administrator has a crony friend with a Yoga school. I’ll let you be the judge of which it is.

Reason 302: Because, According To Federal Court, You Forfeit Your Right As A Parent When You Send Them To The Statist School

We have another excellent article from People For The Separation Of School And State that looks at a 9th Circuit Court decision that resulted from a law over interviews conducted with children in a California school in which first, third, and fifth graders were asked explicit sexual questions as well as other disturbing and intrusive questions. (*) And of course the 9th Circuit stood by a lower court decision and the Supreme Court stood by the 9th Circuit.

The article:

Do Parents Have Rights?

The article excerpts from the court’s decree:

Excerpt: [O]nce parents make the choice as to which school their children will attend, …their fundamental right to control the education of their children is, at the least, substantially diminished. The constitution does not vest parents with the authority to interfere with a public school’s decision as to how it will provide information to its students or what information it will provide, in its classrooms or otherwise. See Yoder, 406 U.S. at 205. Perhaps the Sixth Circuit said it best when it explained,

“While parents may have a fundamental right to decide whether to send their child to a public school, they do not have a fundamental right generally to direct how a public school teaches their child. Whether it is the school curriculum, the hours of the school day, school discipline, the timing and content of examinations, the individuals hired to teach at the school, the extracurricular activities offered at the school or, as here, a dress code, these issues of public education are generally ‘committed to the control of state and local authorities.’ ”

So according to this court, if the state decides to teach your children that gender is a choice, that homosexuality is righteous, or that there is no god but the god/state, or they ought to have sex, sex, sex and kill the offspring while it forms in the womb, or that the masses ought to submit willingly to their lot in life as slaves to the ruling class lest the earth overheat and they all die,  then you, dear parent, have no say in that. But the court does point out that you do have the choice open to you to keep your children at home. So in the end, it is your choice, dear parent.   Which will you choose?

Reason 298: Because Your Children Will Not Learn These Very Real And Obvious Facts At School

In honor of the 4th I’ll present to you this. It’s one of the best little films I’ve ever seen, and should be required recurrent training for all staff and students in the schoolhouse. Of course, it isn’t required but denied, and it won’t ever be seen in the schoolhouse. But it can be watched often in the ___Insert your last name here__ Family Acadamy Of Fine Education And Indoctrination.

Reason 285: Because When The Blind Leads The Blind They Both Fall In A Ditch

When you think government always think big: big debt, big legislation, big prisons, big government and big failure. Of course, the failure part is no big deal for big government. It can always tax and print more cash for its failures. But you can’t print more children when their failure affects your children.

So we have this article:

They Think They’re ‘Smarter’

It seems one of the Senators, a Republican, can’t believe that the big education bureaucracy is not implementing his big, massive, monstrosity of a bill the way it’s supposed to be implemented. The article puts it like this:

Despite his apparent inattention to warnings that the bill was a monstrosity that contained no binding provisions meant to contain or decrease federal power in favor of state and local control, Sen. Alexander now accuses the new chief of the Education Department of doing exactly what many observers expected the overbearing feds to do.

This article showcases the big pride of big government as knowing more than you, the little parent, about how a big, bloated, self-serving, out-of-control government can provide your offspring with a better education than you can. Let them think so. But let them think so as you ignore their blind stupidity and teach your children to avoid the pits that the prideful blind just can’t seem to see.

Reason 278: Because A Mind Is Too Precious To Just Give Away

Some things we see today were so outrageous just a few years ago that they would have been laughed at if suggested. But no one’s laughing now. It was only about 8 years ago for example that Obama felt he needed to lie about his stance on redefining marriage to get elected. That he was lying is old news now.

I can remember being laughed at and poo-pooed years ago as an extremist when I said that America would eventually redefine marriage to include those of the same sex. But I never thought I’d see the day that president of America would bully school systems into redefining the words male and female and then demand that males be allowed into the girl’s locker rooms in the schoolhouse. But even that is happening now.

One thing to remember is that politics is downstream of culture. The culture changes first, and then they elect a government that reflects that change… which brings us this:

Massachusetts House Overwhelmingly Passes Bill to Abolish Biological Sex

The question is, how is culture changed so radically in such a short amount of time? Of course, the answer to that question can be found in every neighborhood across this once great land in that building just down the street where they mold the next generation’s minds.

But you still have liberty to mold your children’s minds into a realistic sane worldview. And I suggest you use the liberty granted to you by God to change the course of your child’s life, and perhaps even history.

Reason 258: Because Others Are Doing It?

Well, maybe that’s not a good reason. But others are doing it in increasing numbers. Here’s some interesting news from North Carolina:

In one state, more children homeschool than attend private schools. Why that shouldn’t shock you.

The article gets into the reasons this is happening, but it focuses on just a few of what it figures are prominent reasons… like Common Core, moral and religious teaching and such. As for me, I think it’s awesome. But I also realize that the more people who do this, the more attention it’s going to get from Goliaths like the NEA and the rest of the monsters who run the asylum. So we get this from the article:

The National Education Association, the country’s largest teacher’s union, declared in a 2011 resolution: “The National Education Association believes that homeschooling programs based on parental choice cannot provide the student with a comprehensive education experience.”

But, there is quite a gap between what the NEA believes about homeschooling and the actual results from homeschooling. According to Education News:

Recent studies laud homeschoolers’ academic success, noting their significantly higher ACT-Composite scores as high schoolers and higher grade point averages as college students. Yet surprisingly, the average expenditure for the education of a homeschooled child, per year, is $500 to $600, compared to an average expenditure of $10,000 per child, per year, for public school students.

Who’d a thought?  A child learns better when being taught by someone who’d give their very blood for that child than by a union thug*.

 

Note:

(*)Of course, there are lots of fine teachers in the system. But that’s just it, it’s a system. And if these fine teachers act like decent human beings they will be fired pronto. Because any decent human being would not lie to their students and tell them that they’re nothing but flesh machines and so… survival of the fittest.  And oh yea, if you act like, “survival of the fittest” we might put you in prison.  But decent people need to work, and they have a vocation. And for some, that vocation is teaching. And as for me, I’m glad they’re there. Thank you to all who slug it out in the system every day. You are a warrior.
