Why Aren’t You Homeschooling Yet?

Posted on | June 9, 2013 | 10 Comments

The government school system is becoming a pathetic joke:

In what amounts to self-parody, an elementary school in California will hold a toy gun exchange — similar to the real gun exchanges run by police departments for real guns — in order to remove the, er, threat of toy guns at school.

Years ago, someone explained to me what’s wrong with the system: Government school bureaucrats are not interested in teaching facts.

What they are interested in teaching is attitudes.

Once you understand that, everything else makes sense.

    I thought the goal of Government bureaucrats was to loot the system. When the highest paid education (and state) official is a football coach because of the marketing draw, is it free market education?

    […] The other sad aspect of programs like this one is that they are used to indoctrinate kids to hate guns. The message is simple, guns are bad, even guns that are not guns. Even the word gun is now bad somehow. We know the many stories of kids suspended because they pointed a chicken strip and said “bang”, or drew a picture of a soldier with a gun, or brought a water pistol to school, or chewed a Pop Tart into the “shape of a gun”. These cases amount to child abuse, and nothing more. This must be stopped, and now. If state legislatures want to do something positive, they can start by cracking down of such school policies. As Stacey McCain puts it, why aren’t you home schooling yet? […]

    It sounds cute at first, until you notice that part of the “buy-back” is the kids get photographed and fingerprinted.

    The more I hear about public schools, the more I realize government has no business at all in education.
