I'll give my two bit on homeschooling:
I think, and fully agree with homeschooling. My girlfriend and I have even discussed that should we have children that we may elect to teach them
subjects such as history, government: Partial Homeschooling. The reason for this is because I will not stand by while my child is force fed
progressively slanted history and liberal interpretation of constitutional ideals. Some of the stuff I've seen online are even outright lies. There
was a case in October about a woman who saw that her daughter was taught that
"The Atlantic slave trade between the 1500s and the 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the southern United States to work on
One: I take issue with the term "workers". I'm not above calling out America for some of it's past atrocities. I don't think (and will not) "pay" for
events that happened over 200 years ago, but I'm not above stating it and acknowledging it is a dark stain on our history.
Two: The number of slaves that that text book quotes is an outright lie. Less than half a million slaves made it to the English Colonies that formed
our country, yet this book states that "millions" were brought over. On top of that, I doubt it is even stated anymore that slave importation was
banned in the United States a mere 20 years after our country formed. I doubt that is taught at all.
I'm no math genius, and I suppose depending if Common Core is still used, I may teach my kids that as well, but as I said, I will not allow my kids to
be indoctrinated like I almost was. I was in government class when Obama was running for president the first time around. I learned very little from
that class with regards to US government, it was mostly a "Struggles of the Black Man in America" class. I'm sure Obama's running for President, and
my Professor being a 50 year old Black man had nothing to do with that *sarcasm* - I won't expose my kid to that. And this was almost a decade ago,
I'm sure it's much much worse.
Another case I saw was with regards to the second amendment. In that common core text book, it stated and I quote:
“This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison.”
Yeah, that's not a Liberal interpretation of the second amendment, not at all.
This is what I won't allow my kids to be exposed to.
