The agenda behind this is transhumanism. They are about to tell us that you are not a man, a woman but a robot. Robots don't have gender. They don't procreate. We don't need you for that. We clone human being in our factories. They want to disconnect us from our souls and the source that is love. We have to all say no to this insanity. I do not consent!

The newest Project Veritas expose should definitely lead to more homeschooling! Shocking how this assistant principal gloats about discriminating against conservatives during the hiring process... especially Catholics! He also openly admits to discriminating against any teacher older than 30 yr old.

He brags that he only hires young progressives who are willing to "subtly" teach the kids how to think as liberals and act as Democratic voters! Disgusting!

Our local Catholic school included sex education at an early age that I considered inappropriate without adequate information to parents in advance. The school also had someone to come and teach children in K-8 about HIV; the speaker was not an educator and had no concept about what was age appropriate, and he and the principal were both hostile to me when I tried to obtain information about what had been presented to the children. Whatever was said obviously went over the children's heads because these my daughter and her friends, 8 years old, somehow had gotten the idea that they could catch AIDS by kissing their parents goodnight, and other misconceptions. So it was poorly done, by someone who had neither a teaching credential nor a degree related to health - though in my daughter's class, many of the parents were doctors, nurses, health educators - and they could have gotten a parent to give the presentation rather than this outside speaker, to talk to children as young as six years old about a disease of primarily adults. When I had had all that could be endured - I chose homeschooling with great relief. I don't recommend Catholic schools for the most part, though there are a few good ones, but I would be as cautious about Catholic schools as I would be about public schools, and I do think homeschooling is by far the best option if at all possible. Besides way too much wokeness even years ago, plus lack of accommodation for learning differences and health issues, a general disrespect for parents because the principal knew best of course, I didn't even the curriculum - we would be up late at night trying to learn things that I thought were rather useless, while there was no time for things I considered of greater importance. So many problems disappeared when we started homeschooling. It was such a great relief.

Another option is a hybrid of homeschool and private school where the student has a couple of days per week in class as well as social activities to go with homeschooling, and parents get a much lower pricing structure than pure private school. The program that leases room space from the church I attend has been very successful with this approach.

This is what we've done with our 13 yo. She attended a couple of these b/c we've relocated. She's in her second week of the second "university model" school. So far so good. The first was awesome.

In between she attended a private school nearby- $15k/year. All those easily-influenced 7th grade girls in her school have adopted some strange gender. I don't like it, but if that's what they want to think, that's them. They don't stop there, though. They tell her, "you're bi. We know you are. We can just tell." And it doesn't stop even there. They try to intimidate her using subtle means. When she asks, "How much trouble do you think you'd get into if you were a boy saying these things," they say, "Oh, we're just kidding."

My wife maintained communication with the other mothers. But she respected our daughter's wishes not to tell others about what was happening. It would have just brought more bullying for her. Point is, my wife is sure the other mothers don't have a clue.

In VA there are laws about that which cover the whole state: however as many school districts like to declare their own fiefdom and no one seems to have the guts to say anything about it the sex offenders go unnoticed and uncaught until AFTER they commit a crime.

I don't know .. I am from a diff generation".. and the School board covered it up.. All that is on the internet and real mess. . When my children were young I kept on top of EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY who had contact with my children. REST ASSURED of that.. :) take care. Have a good Sunday.

Thank you for highlighting the homeschool community. I never thought I’d be an advocate for homeschooling until my grandchildren started during the pandemic. They loved it so much that they did not want to go back to the public school system. Fortunately our community has a huge homeschool community and a resource center where there are activities every day of the week. Plus they have classes taught by teachers that have left the school system such as science, English, math etc. My husband and I have seen our grandkids blossom. They are more happier and confident. And are thriving.

My wife and I have homeschooled all five of our boys from day one. We both have teaching credentials as well as degrees. But you don’t need any of that! I would encourage anyone who thinks they might have the resources as laid out by Dr. Malone to go for it. There are sacrifices of the sort that you make when caring for anyone or anything. The rewards are those that come from caring for people.

Our first son just graduated Summa Cum Laude with an electrical engineering degree and immediately stepped into an aerospace job that starts him over 70k/ yr. I say that in all humility, because I don’t think we are the most amazing homeschoolers. We had many epic challenges along the way, but thank goodness children are resilient.

Even without recent developments our Public School system teaches to the test suffocating the love of learning and never developing curiousity and critical thinking. It's also artificial with age-segregation. Homeschooling allows for full maturity intellectually, emotionally and socially. Many community colleges offer science and English classes to homeschooling families and the local schools are open for sports and arts because your tax dollars pay for it. It's a rich experience, even if only for a few years.

School lockdowns "opened" parent's eyes.

Mask mandates "unmasked" teacher's union's agendas.

Forced "vaccinations" forced people to question the relationship between government and pharmaceutical companies.

The more information they hid from us, the more we learned how to search for information.

Eternally grateful for Dr Malone and every other truth warrior for putting it on the line.

The big myth about homeschooling is that homeschooled children aren't properly socialized. As if grouping kids by narrow age ranges is the way to properly socialize a kid.

Kids learn good social skills from being around people who properly model good social skills. Homeschoolers are usually able to interact with kids and adults across a broad age range. By all means homeschooler parents should expose their kids to a variety of positive social experiences, but the good modeling starts with parents.

Most of us are blind to the industrial revolution-marxist inspiration for modern public schools, which at its heart, favors destruction of the family unit.

You are so right. I’ve homeschooled all 6 of my kids from the beginning and 4 of them all the way through high school (still two more to go). When people would ask me how I was going to socialize them, I always said, “certainly not the way they’re doing it in public school.”

With our big family, they have always been involved with their siblings and their friends. They have friends of all ages. Best of all, the 6 of them are all very close friends.

Yes! That's the line public school advocates love to use to scare parents. Who wants to picture their children as anti-social geeks? But we have observed the opposite to be true in real life.

It’s common to receive complements from people of all persuasions about the respectfulness and communication skills of your homeschooled children. You are spot on when you talk about our industrial education system and it’s goals.

Excellent Comment.

Early on, I was introduced to RIE method for early childhood development. This was at a home-based care facility. My kids were there since about 6 months of age until pre-school. The basic principles are to see the world through the eyes of the developing child, their state of current brain development, and Sportscast Their Needs and Intended Actions. Magda Gerber was the inspiration for the Method, where she helped many orphaned children in Europe (Romania, I think), become more confident and have better self-image, and outcomes (avoiding lack of purpose, depression etc.), with the care of nurses employing RIE as their Primary Caregiver.

One can look up RIE method: https://www.rie.org

Great site for more info: https://www.janetlansbury.com/2013/12/rie-parenting-basics-9-ways-to-put-respect-into-action/

I treat my kids, like equals, nearly as adults, and give them the platform to speak what they feel and what they are experiencing in their world. My kids (7, 10) actually prefer to be with their parents versus, kids in k-6, because we treat them with respect, unlike the basic population at school. Kids need to be themselves and not infantilized or made into an icon of the parents Self-Image.

I'm looking at Private Schools, but have found that the independent schools of CA have DEI and anti-racism Agendas. I'm not sure how I feel about those items. Coupled with your insights about the New Business Items for NEA, Homeschooling was never on my Radar; but I'm beginning to see the Merits.

It will hasten the downfall of the public school systems but not necessarily the country as more and more people have their eyes opened up. The public schools may eventually have the choice of making vast improvements, shutting down, or remaining irrelevant.

I've homeschooled my 3 kids. My oldest is in California community college with a religious exemption. I do not want her to transfer to U of California school for pre-vet because they are unqualified to teach science, in my opinion. How can a school who forces out Dr. Kheriaty for claiming natural immunity is equivalent to vaccine immunity teach science? How can a school who forces students against the Nuremberg Code to participate in a medical experiment teach science? How can a school who cannot read scientific studies well enough to see that the injections do not stop transmission teach science? We are in a family dispute over these issues. It's awful.

Google Christian Veterinary Fellowship and Christian Veterinary Mission. I do not know much about these organizations, but you may find someone, through them, that will help with the dilemma of life science schools and the departure from truth (how ironic). Sadly, the sciences and engineering are two vocational areas that really require a university program - with their amazing labs and often world class professors. It is true that many of these professors are terribly humanistic and leftist shills but some are saints (I am recalling one of my soils professors right now). Another option is to get a vet tech certification and work for some veterinarians for a bit ( and actually make money). There is a great lack of veterinarians and vet techs in many areas right now. There are even Christian veterinary outreaches to poor nations that need veterinarians and techs.

Yep. I homeschooled WAY back starting in 2005 with my fourth born. No regrets. I was mocked and shamed, but I ignore that. "Your opinion of me is none of my business." The kid hung out with friends in the neighborhood, or other outlets. He went to college EARLY, in his junior year. So, yeah. Worked for us.

Good for you. My son and his family (four littles) are homeschooling, and we're delighted. We have been awakened to so many things over the last 7 or so years and hope and pray that many of our friends will encourage their adult kids to seek and find different ways to educate their families. My grands are a delight, socially adept, and also sheltered from the bullying and indoctrination of public schools.

Homeschooling is awesome and the reasons are many. I don't think there necessarily should be research about "best practices" as the beauty of homeschooling is that you adapt your methods and your plans to each student, each family, and the parents doing the teaching.

As a physician, when I have had patients express concern to me about children or grandchildren who have learning differences that are not being accommodated in public or private schools, I have often encouraged them to homeschool, and then the curriculum and methods can be tailored to the individual child / children. In some schools, there seems to be only a pretense of accommodating learning disabilities or ADHD. Often the best treatment for ADHD is to have a child in a one-on-one setting or in a classroom with fewer students, and one can easily do this at home. The parent who usually cares much more about the child's progress than even the best professional teacher can supervise the learning, work with the child on improving attention or overcoming disabilities, seek an LD tutor if needed or whatever support services the child needed but was not getting in public school.

Often there are co-ops where parents trade skills and share expertise. As a physician, I have taught middle school and high school biology around our kitchen table, with lab, and also have taught Biology online - and other subjects. My daughter was in a co-op she chose for herself her last year in high school where a music teacher with a degree in music taught music, and an attorney taught one of her classes.

But, one doesn't have to be a professional. I obtained a used copy of "Hooked on Phonics" for a low income single mom whose daughter was struggling with reading, she worked with her at home, and the child is reading above grade level now. One doesn't have to have an advanced degree or a lot of money to successfully homeschool. Desire and effort go a long way, and there are always other homeschoolers who are willing to help. There are also many free resources online and through county and state homeschool support groups. Khan Academy at khanacademy.org is a non-profit organization that offers free online classes, that many homeschoolers use.

Some of the advantages of homeschooling are that you can usually get through the same amount of work in less time than public school. I have done substitute teaching and worked as a teacher aide many years ago when I was an undergrad, and I know how much time gets taken up getting kids in line to go to the gym, collecting lunch money, addressing behavior issues, lining kids up for recess etc. etc. Not having to do any of these things at home, it doesn't take from 8:30 to 3 p.m. every single day to teach your child, so you have more time available for field trips, ballet lessons or piano lessons, various kinds of enrichment activities.

You're also socializing with kids of various ages, and multi-generational groups so that children learn to interact with a greater diversity of people rather than exclusively kids their own age. While she was in high school, I took my daughter with me to a conference in Europe where I was speaking, and she offered to help at the registration table. Another time, I led a weekend retreat overseas, and she helped the food team as a server. But within the dance school she attended, she interacted with children her own age, as well as older and younger, when they were preparing for performances or field trips - as an older student she often helped younger girls learn to do their hair and make-up and line up to wait for their cues to go on stage. I would be writing all day if I told all the many opportunities she had through homeschooling for doing different kinds of activities with kids her age, as well as kids from preschool age through adults. Like real life.

And the field trips. She was able to travel with my husband and me when we each had opportunities to travel related to our work, to meet our colleagues, and then check out a museum or two or attend conference sessions sometimes. She saw Faberge eggs at a museum in Louisiana, the World War II museum in Louisiana, and alligators while on a boat tour of swamps. Washington DC and Williamsburg, Virginia with Scouts. But field trips don't have to be exotic or expensive - our local homeschool group took family groups to apple orchards, firestations, and local historic sites, and most states have tons of thigns you can find to do for little to no fee - a national park site on the location of a Revolutionary War battle, local re-enactments of the French and Indian War, and the American Revolution, historic houses and farmsteads, natural beauty at a national park and an interpretive center where the animals and plants are explained. Not all learning comes from a book.

Homeschooling also allows not only the basics, but more time to spend on any special interests - more time for free reading, and going beyond the textbook.

If both parents have to work outside the home full-time, that would make homeschooling unworkable for some, though some states allow for 2-family homeschools, and in our family, my husband and I each have our own separate business which allowed us to control our work schedule and also to work from home a lot of the time when our daughter was younger - but we could divide the teaching and the carpoolign to activities. Sometimes co-op learning or attending a structured program like Classical Conversations in which students are taught a curriculum in a program usually taught one full day per week in the home of the teacher, with students then having assignments for the rest of the week, can help some to be able to manage homeschooling. When possible, I think homeschooling is by far the best.

We made the switch to homeschooling based on learning needs and a health issue that were not being accommodated at the school at that time, plus a surprisingly high degree of wokeness that was unacaeptable. Actually, school was causing numerous adverse effects that we were experiencing. When students have a good situation in a school, good, but I think homeschool is usually best when realistically possible for a family.

As a retired public school teacher, I can tell you that things were getting progressively worse since the 70’s when I began teaching. I know many veteran good teachers and several appallingly bad young teachers(products of the corrupted educational system). I could not wait to retire in 2017 and my heart goes out to the good teachers and students still in the “system.”

I would never send a child of mine into that cesspool. I support a small private school and even there, when I substituted in 2017-2018, they had the atrocious common core math, a United Nations initiative.

I feel for the parents who both work and struggle to put food on the table let alone try to home school.

The system was patterned after a socialist system that strove to eliminate free thinkers. If you dig deep enough you will find the likes of Dewey and many others who had the agenda that has produced today’s educational system. It was long in the planning. There is a quote by Bertrand Russell, if I remember correctly, that wanted to make the children so brainwashed and injected that they could not think other than the way their school masters wanted them to think. I found part of it:

“In the book "The Impact of Science on Society", published in 1951, the following quotes are found:

"Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished." (Page 50 - The Intended Result of Education)”

I think I was lucky. In BC, Canada, my elementary school teachers were top notch old-style teachers (grade 1 was 1974). We still had to sit in the corner when we didn't listen, got sent home (and likely spanked if we were really bad), had to print and write neatly, and drilling arithmetic, spelling, and reading were what we did. It wasn't until about 1980 that things started to change. No "Christmas" allowed at the "winter" concert etc. High school was worse, but we still learned something.

By the time I was in university and teaching as a substitute in northern BC in 1989 things were way, way worse. I decided then to not become a teacher.

Child 2: home school to grade 9, took 2 years distance in BC, joined a seminary, graduated with honors, did an Arts degree, changed vocations, got married, works in a mill

Child 3: home school to grade 9, took 3 years in public school (his choice), did terribly, lived terribly, recovered, graduated with honors, became a fisherman

Child 5: home schooled completely, wrote GEDs in 2020, studied software engineering in college, was kicked out due to no vax in 2021, is resuming this year as a 'distance' learner because she's too dirty to be allowed on campus

All producing members of society, are socially talented, we saved the taxpayer a gazillion bucks, very little waste due to home-cooked lunches (it's our way of being environmental), all can sing in 4 part harmony (Bach + Christmas carols etc.), all play at least one instrument other than piano.
