A recent headline from a Savannah local paper proclaims, “Experts say homeschooling ripe for abuse; law changes considered after two Effingham children found buried.” What it doesn’t tell you, however, makes it clear the “experts” are being dishonest in blaming homeschooling, and there is an obvious agenda behind this biased reporting. A whole ream of […]
A memo put out by the Orange County [CA] Board of Education has made its rounds on social media, alarming Christians and conservatives with a mandate that children be subjected to “instruction” in “gender, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation” with no allowance for being excused. While homeschoolers obviously find further reason for our […]
Franklin Graham’s outrage over government-school coaches being forbidden to pray on school property and at school functions reveals the deep inner conflict that has inflicted the greatest damage upon conservative Evangelicals in America. Graham posted Friday blasting a decision by the Ninth Circuit to uphold a government school district’s suspension of a coach for […]
Kiarre Harris, following the laws of the State to the letter, has been bereft of her children for over a month. She is not alone, and you need to pay attention why. About 150 years ago, the states and federal government in this land erected one more god. This god grew and matured, and its […]
Think your schools are different? Well, even if they were (and they weren’t), they’re not any more. Obama is about to issue an executive letter telling all public schools to allow transgender students and staff to use whatever bathroom they like. Yes, that means sexually confused, unstable, and perverted boys and men entering your girls’ […]
Saturday is my day to homeschool the kids. It is one of the highlights of my week. In addition to their learning, I learn an appreciation for what my wife takes on during the week. Though there are a number of subjects included in our homeschool curriculum, my Saturday curriculum consists of only one. It […]
Everything Obama and Co. does is to grow the State and give it more control and power over our lives. So why would Homeland Security and later the Justice Department decide not to deport the Romeike family after pursuing the deportation order through the courts where it ended up at the Supreme Court with the […]
A number of countries are clamping down on family education of children, better known as homeschooling. Parents decide to educate their children in the home instead of sending them off to a government institution or a private school that must adhere to specific state educational guidelines. Free-sex Sweden is notorious for denying parents the right […]
The interview clips from Crown Rights’ Edified program continue today with “The Chocolate Knox” and me as we discuss homeschooling verses government schooling.
This will not be done. It will not be done because Americans do not really want major spending cuts. To demonstrate my point, let us consider America’s sacred cow, tax-funded education. According to the Central Intelligence Agency’s “Factbook,” the United States spends about 5.3% of gross domestic product each year on education. If that estimate […]
The title for today’s article is taken from a response to one of American Vision’s daily articles. The respondent is an atheist who claims he can refute any argument raised in defense of the Christian faith. I have irritated him so much by answering his poorly researched responses he sends to me that his true […]
Because of a recent column, "It’s Your Serve," a reader questioned how the task of achieving societal reformation and transformation could happen by the voluntary-based, "bottom-up" plan that I proposed:
Pastors, just like the rest of society, hold various views on homeschooling. Even so, I assume most visitors to the American Vision website would not be willing to submit to shepherds who only view homeschooling as a passing phenomenon or who might suggest that homeschoolers are somehow substandard.
Gary DeMar made public the outlandish claim of a chronic web malcontent who said that homeschool graduates are only fit for lifetime occupations of scrubbing toilets and mowing lawns.
The title for today’s article is taken from a response to one of American Vision’s daily articles. The respondent is an atheist who claims he can refute any argument raised in defense of the Christian faith. I have irritated him so much by answering his poorly researched responses he sends to me that his true character is spilling out in a public way. His personal emails to me are worse than what I have reproduced here. If you want to know what the world would be like with atheists in control, here’s a little taste:
I recently received an email from the National Congress of State Legislators, touting their excitement over states having increased spending over the last year by over $1,000,000,000 (I prefer to put all the zeroes on there to show how big a billion actually is) on early education, meaning day care and preschool programs. That’s a lot of money to increase spending for children who aren’t even in school yet!
Here’s a challenging email from last week.
I am a homeschool mother. I agree that homeschooling is a wonderful option for some parents. I also agree it’s the parents’ responsibility before the Lord to train and teach their children about Him. But, I disagree with you that homeschooling is the only way to train them. I have witnessed many godly parents whose children are in other educational arenas. I sense from your article sarcasm and a lofty attitude. We limit God when we think He can only work in a homeschool family and accomplish His will only in certain circumstances.
History shows that nearly every nation has ultimately caved in to a very counter-intuitive (satanic?) temptation: That the only sensible way for 4 and 5-year-old children to begin their life-education journey is that they be ripped away from the care of Mom and Dad at home and turned over to "professional specialists" in state-controlled classrooms.
