Home school vs government cookie-cutter education

April 28, 2014

Maybe the people that ridicule Christians advocating removing their children from government schools and home-schooling them should consider that the home-schooled have been among the top winners in spelling bees, geography bees, math competitions, and the mostly-home-schooled law students at Patrick Henry College have won first place in moot court competitions in the US and even in the UK using UK law!

The old mythical stereotype of the dumb backward Christian doesn’t work for scientists (since it’s all downhill after creationist Isaac Newton), or today, since the home-schooled consistently have scored higher on average than others on the same tests, and by the way, Christian and religious school students have shown better scores than those from public schools. And that’s with public schools’ scores aided by situations where the home-schoolers had to go into public schools, and boost the public school scores.

Write your questions down, we’ll answer the ones you’re allowed to know

September 25, 2013

WRITE YOUR QUESTIONS DOWN, WE’LL TELL YOU WHAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO KNOW

(It’s all for the kids. We know what’s good for them better than you parents)

The school council called the meeting to discuss the so-called “Common Core” (aka “Dumb-Down Continued”), said questions in writing only, because the meeting was called and parents invited to “explain” these top-down orders from high places…

Yeah, and at the end, people were protesting because their questions were not answered. They only answered the ones they wanted to, the comfortable ones.

What happened to parents who are supposed to be driving their kids’ education? Who said they are better at this? Bill Clinton exposed the entire D.C. imperial capital when he said his goal was for every pupil to know how to read and write by the time they get to the third grade.

Third grade!? Most of my kids were reading by Kindergarten! Pwah. Wake up people! Stop trusting in man, whose breath is in his nostrils.

SAME PRODUCT, DIFFERENT PACKAGES, $31,000 EXTRA PLEASE
A $31,000 premium added to the cost of the same car (under the hood), paid for the brand name only.

It’s an old marketing trick.

EQUAL TREATMENT UNDER THE LAW?

NOT WHEN THIS GOVERNMENT DOESN’T LIKE YOU.

Lois Lerner lied, and equal treatment died… The most evil agency of the federal government, aided and abetted by party bosses from both sides of the aisle, is a runaway rogue gang of thieves, and like the Federal Reserve, robbing the poor and middle class..

FREE SPEECH FOR ME, BUT NOT FOR THEE…

Tenure is not good even for those protected by it, especially when the professors abuse it by disrupting other speakers’ rights to free speech, and even more considering that the supposed purpose of it was to protect free speech. Now exposed as a politically protected cartel with monopoly powers… Tenure damages their reputation for history…

Marriage is for a family, a family is for the children

This is a reply to the blog by Brian Roberts, a sociologist:

http://brianrobertssociology.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/nuclear-family-in-decline-bbc-online/

First this: “Functionalism and the New Right see this as detrimental to society, evidenced in the increase in crime, educational failure etc.” Then “This argument rests upon the assumption that a child needs to be raised within an environment of married mum and dad – dad being the key stabilizer here.”

If something is “evidenced in”, then it’s not an argument that “rests upon the assumption”. As a matter of fact, the “evidence” you mention shows the actual truth of the matter, something that actually some voices agree from among the more censored and suppressed voices ion today’s “sociology”.

In fact, the “evidence” is stronger than how it was presented. The studies –even from more “gay-friendly” survey organizations– show that the correspondence between a strong nuclear family of husband, wife, on one side, and less crime, more educational success, more psychological stability, and so on.

There are exceptions on all sides, depending on what measures you accept.

The damage is done when social and political pressures in the majority of social milieus impose the assumption that the family type doesn’t matter.

Besides, the historical evidence from millenia of recorded history shows us also that the tendency toward the true nuclear, natural family springs from nature. A woman is driven by her maternal instincts unless it is “socialized” out of her. Genders of man and woman are *most obviously* and self-evidentially natural, and not impositions of society, an idea some some “social disruptor forces” are trying to impose on the rest of us, mostly from positions of power.

A society with fewer stable children, after all, is more resistant to dictates from state decrees. Children raised by father and mother, less confused by gender confusions imposed unnaturally upon them, absorb more of their parents’ base values and are not so vulnerable to manipulation.

That’s why the powers that be demand state indoctrination centers for the children, and that’s why they assume that taxes extorted from the populace must be allocated there. That’s why from the beginning, free and forced education requirements were imposed early on. Instead of treating the education dole like they treat the welfare dole, they instead want to make it education by the state.

It’s not “for the children”, obviously. If it were “for the children”, they would look at the results of nearly a century of almost universal obligatory and government-provided schooling, and recoil in horror at it, and immediately insist on letting parents have those resources so they can have a choice as to where to put their children. Using the slower children as an excuse to put chains on the brighter ones to bind them to centrally planned failures is an outrageous atrocity, and not even based in fact, since the “slower ones” are often freed up in a different setting to thrive.

Homeschool parents have 1 shot to see son again

This family needs international support to keep their son.

The Swedish authorities have been brutal against the rights of the family to keep their child, based only on their home-schooling decision, despite testimony from numerous friends and neighbors they are a good family and the decision of a lower court in the family’s favor.

The child was taken from them even as they boarded an aircraft to go to the mother’s home country of India. Their Social Services, the agency that was portrayed as criminally negligent in the novel by Stieg Larsson, in his so-called “Millennium Trilogy“, the most famous being “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo“.

They are certainly living down to the horrendous performance of the treatment of the girl in those novels.

Of course Stieg Larsson was also wrong, wrong, WRONG, in his perverted portrayal of Nazil history. The Nazis, especially the Hitler kind, despised Christianity and hated the Bible. His fictitious evil socialist (“national socialist”) based crimes on verses.

Of course the crimes they committed were worse than the perversions portrayed, weren’t they, and he did not bring in the question of whether these people actually did it.

Ok, here we go again. It’s September 17, 2012, and that means, it’s “Constitution Day” in the United States. Two-hundred twenty five years ago today, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had drafted.

Sadly, though, this so-called national holiday is a sham.

Politicians who never follow the Constitution will tell us about its greatness. Pundits who could care less about Constitutional limits will wax eloquent about how we should all praise the wisdom of the Framers. And educators – under an unconstitutional federal mandate – will pretend to teach our children about the Constitution, even though they’re mostly clueless about it.

This “Constitution Day” wasn’t always a widespread date of importance in this country. Back in 2004, federal politicians passed a law mandating the teaching of the Constitution in schools that receive federal funds, as well as federal agencies. It stated, in part:

Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution.

Public law 108-447 didn’t start out as a “civic education” bill – it was actually an appropriations bill. It included massive funding and subsidies for the FDA, agricultural programs, state and local “law enforcement assistance,” the department of energy, the export-import bank – including guaranteed loan programs, military funding for Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Sudan, Guatemala, Haiti, and Uganda, the world bank, federal unemployment programs, the department of education, the department of housing and urban development, and much more.

Think about that for just a moment.

Federal politicians, who are taking billions upon billions of dollars from the American people to carry out programs not authorized by the Constitution, are unconstitutionally mandating that schools unconstitutionally funded by the unconstitutional department of education will teach your kids about constitutional limits on federal power.

If that’s not some kind of sick joke, I don’t know what is.

“Liberal” Sweden turning fascist: Homeschooling banned just like in 1930s-1940s Germany

Homeschoolers take banishment protest to government:
http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/homeschoolers-take-banishment-protest-to-government/?cat_orig=world

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – A coalition of homeschoolers and supporters arrived in the Swedish capital of Stockholm after a six-day, 120-mile “Walk to Freedom” that was staged to raise awareness about a controversial ban on home education.

On their way through town, the home education advocates stopped at the Ministry of Education and the Justice Ministry to protest the year-old homeschooling prohibition and deliver a letter they wrote. No one from the government was willing to talk with them, but their message was heard loud and clear.

The march began on July 13 and concluded on the self-governing Finnish Aland Islands, where dozens of Swedish homeschoolers have fled as political refugees since the homeschooling ban in Sweden went into effect.

And the march ended on the Finnish-governed island of Aland, located in the sea between Sweden and Finland, where many homeschoolers from Sweden have fled for refuge, where homeschooling rights are still protected.

Get Politicians’ Grubby Hands Off Our Children!

January 25, 2012

The reason I want the federal government out of education is because it is making kids dumber and it is a wasteful burden on the body politic, besides pushing dumb-down programs like W Bush’s cookie-cutter push with No Child Left Behind. Which, by the way, Rick Santorum voted for.

I want all government out of education because it should be the parents educating the kids or deciding where to put them. Vouchers is the issue that expose the control freaks that want to indoctrinate our kids at the mercy of teachers’ unions, but tax deductions and prosperity are the things that will set families free from the stealing of kids’ minds.

Education, real, true, free education (free of indoctrination by political mandates from oligarchies) is in the hands of parents. Having government teach our kids and telling us we have no choice in the matter is an attack on education, and that’s exactly why they are failing our future generations.

Republican Insider: GOP Establishment Planning To Subvert Iowa to Prevent Ron Paul Win

January 4, 2012

From January 3rd:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/republican-insider-gop-establishment-planning-to-subvert-iowa-to-prevent-ron-paul-win.html

The web page includes a video with a Republican Party insider in Iowa boldly proclaiming the kinds of tricks that party leaders were going to use to make sure that Ron Paul would not come out in first place in Iowa.

The host of the show refers to state GOP insiders showing “great concern” that Ron Paul is performing well in Iowa because they fear a Paul win would undermine Iowa’s position as being the first Republican primary. He implies that influential members of the Republican establishment within the state are offering sweetheart deals to prominent voting blocks in key swing districts in order to “sway” the result and ensure Ron Paul doesn’t win.

Despite the fact that this is brazenly unethical and, if bribery was involved, without doubt illegal, the host dismisses such conduct as “just politics”.

“Is it possible that the party apparatus here could be silently asking those District Chairmen to start swaying some important caucus members over to the anti-Paul side which may end up being Santorum…do you see a scenario like that happening,” he asked Benkie.

“I’ve talked to the party officials, I know they’re concerned about it,” said Benkie, adding, “Ron Paul doesn’t do us any good in Iowa, doesn’t do the country any good, will never get there, so let’s figure out what we need to do.”

Benkie said that the GOP establishment was concerned about splitting the vote between Santorum and Romney because it could increase the chances of a Ron Paul win, remarking, “We really don’t want Ron Paul to win.”

There you have it. They MSM is yapping about where is the “stop-Romney” candidate, but it’s Ron Paul they’re really worried about.

What are they afraid of? A genuine cut to the budget instead of an increased budget that cuts some of the increase? Bringing the troops home to the bases here at home and to the borders? An end to the inflationary poor-robbing money printing of the Fed and the officers it gets from Wall Street? An end to these wars that have done nothing for American interests except for some corporate interests?
A return to the Constitution to measure legislation and executive action?
