You know i promised myself i would never interact with you on ATS again but your post is so preposterously ignorant and just plain egregiously Wrong,i have to say something.

My 11yo son is homeschooled-exactly to avoid indoctrination,manipulation,any form of control in thinking and research of his own.He is probably the most free kid on the planet.He is free to go on the net,any and all sites except porn.He is nocturnal like me so he rises when he wants,learns maths and other basic educational requirements,games when he wants,goes online,eats when he wants(though not exclusively only What he wants).He is actively encouraged to think for himself at all times,to form his own opinions and worldview.

Fear? Idk what goes through your mind,i swear..In the schools,it is All about fear..and about toe-ing the line society set.And the option from public school here,is a Christian school,and their effed-upness and fear of their evil old alien god thingy sending them to hell if they don't toe the line.

Fear used as a tool to prepare our children for the "future."


Children Held Hostage During Disturbing 9/11 Drill by School Official Threatening to Kill Them


Honolulu, HI — In America’s modern-day police state, it seems the state knows no bounds as to how far it will go to keep children and adults in a perpetual state of fear. A recent lawsuit out of Hawaii illustrates the extent of the American fear culture and how its insanity is tormenting and traumatizing America’s youth.

For more than 10 minutes, middle school children were held hostage by a raging lunatic in a mask, swinging a hammer while threatening to kill them all. Naturally, officials claim this drill, involving a school official wearing a mask and holding a hammer while threatening to kill children, was done for the “safety of those children.” Well, Michelle and Eddie Chavez aren’t buying that excuse.

The kids or their parents were NOT notified of the drill.

The kids freaked.

Don't be thick AngelicIRage.

Being a parent does not give you the right to create your own reality, leave alone force your child to live in your invention.


Truebrit, do you have any children?

Is it just me, or does the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals seem like the most un-American, unconstitutional, ass-backwards court in the entire country?

Like, if you hear about a United States circuit court ruling that makes no sense and goes against nearly every constitutional protection on the books, you can GUARANTEE the verdict was handed down form this court.

I think you are very on point here.

To the op, fear is present in public schooling and out. Sometimes I would like to homeschool (but I don't really have my stuff together enough to be organized), but at th end of the day, if I teach my kids at home first, they can navigate school well enough. If children are being taught at home, the risk of the school system teaching them everything is nonexistent.

Example, I'm am ardent cannabis advocate. Of course I don't go on about getting high in front of my kids. I have explained to them in terms they understand, what cannabis is, how it is used medicinally, and recreationally, what the effects are, and why it is not legal where we live. When my oldest came home from an anti drug presentation and I asked her what they "taught", I was not surprised that it was a lot of fear mongering and lies. I asked if she was aware it was propaganda. She did, and said she knew there would be no point trying to argue with the officer that was presenting the false information. Point is..... she was educated at home on the facts, and kept that with her in the midst of the fear and lies. If we do that with sex, drug use, history, and all subjects, our kids will be fine.

Truebrit- I love reading your words!

School is to prepare you for adulthood. This seems like a natural progression. Preparing them for the fear the MSM, gov't, political parties and society has in store for them.

Not to mention that they can't even decide what "Western culture" means in the first place, since "westerners" are so diverse to begin with.

You know, I keep hearing all this screeching about protecting Western Culture then I hear all this screeching about our cultural norms being bad for us, indoctrination blah blah blah... make up your minds.


How about this Truth.

Live And Let Live.


Good philosophy.

Here's another. If you think the kool-aid is poison don't let your kid drink it.


But....but the kid wants to drink it. Surely you're not suggesting that kids shouldn't be shot-callers, right?

Okay, I am just confused? I get that the parents have no rights in the school. That is why there is a school board. I see no "brain washing" going on there. Unless you want to go into, teaching theory as fact. If you want to do that, I could go all day long.

Well the issue dealt with in the OP, is that parents think, incorrectly, that they ought to be in control of the nature of the education their child receives in a publicly run school.

So what your child does or does not do is utterly irrelevant, because you are not making decisions for your child based on the fear based ideology that is held by the individual around whom the OPs article revolves, now are you?

I though not.

As for your assertion that you had elected to cease interacting with me Raxoxane, that is your right, but it really has absolutely nothing to do with the subject matter either, which ought not be a surprise, because neither does the rest of your post.

Actually, I think this woman, Melissa Dykes is spot on correct. In my State, we are doing everything possible to fund alternatives to the public school system. The fight of course is against the Teachers Unions. But truthfully, there needs to be a taxpayer revolt against further funding of these failed and failing systems. They are utterly horriible and are nothing more than indoctrination centers for PC agenda.

The Queen?

Hilarious... if you knew exactly how little say she has in anything, you would consider yourself a fool. I suppose I should not be surprised by your lack of information about places beyond the edge of the state and nation in which you live, although I do, of course, find it rather tedious.

Yet more laughs though, you mention the Queen in the same breath as socialism... I will let you in on a secret here Oldtimer2... these things are mutually exclusive. Ones nation can either be a monarchy of whatever strength (in real terms, Britain's monarch has none, in fact, less than I do in many ways), or it can be a socialism. They are diametrically opposed to one another as systems by which a country might be run, which is something ELSE you would know, if you paid the remotest bit of attention to the world outside the borders of your nation.

Not true, at least not here. I was quite involved in my kids education. When they did or recommended something I didn't agree with it was handled. If it takes going to the school board that's what happened. Those guys are elected. They don't want bad press.
Usually it just took the threat of this to get results. School teachers and admin. have always put themselves above parents, as if being educators makes them more intelligent. They can be bullies. Don't let them.

Yes, I have a son. He is twelve years old, and although I am not comfortable with it, his mother has elected to place him in a school which is part funded by the thrice cursed Roman Catholic Church.

Luckily, he is EXTREMELY intelligent, for all his goofing around might make a person think otherwise, and I know he will be able to cut the guff from the stuff without much effort. He has certainly proven himself fantastically able in that regard thus far.

I am far more concerned about indoctrination from the school he ended up with, than I would have been about the school I would have preferred him to go to. The school I had my eye on was super modern, with tech access for all students, very powerful computing capacity on display in every corner, great layout in terms of the architecture, meaning ease of transit between classes, superb, and I cannot stress this enough, absolutely first rate science and engineering labs (one of the only secondary schools in the country to have a full scale car lift in its technology suite).

However, despite the fact that I would have preferred he go to a secular school, the fact is that he is doing very well, getting damned fine grades (in spite of his Aspergers autism and ADHD), and learning how to filter out nonsense for himself. And guess what? His faith school taught him about human reproduction.

The only thing that remotely troubles him about his education so far, is that he finds his Spanish teacher attractive, which makes it difficult for him to concentrate, which is why his Spanish grade is not on par with the rest of his grades. That is the only thing that remotely concerns me. Everything else he has said, everything else I have heard from them, from his mother, has filled me with confidence in them... further to that, they are even forcing the government to free up resources to improve his experience at the school, by providing him with an organisational assistant (because his condition makes getting from class to class in good order, and organising his homework, very difficult for him).
