At AmericanThinker, Bruce Deitrick Price writes:

“This insight is presented in a new book Credentialed to Destroy where author Robin S. Eubanks talks about classroom techniques that render students confused and defeated. Instead of gaining confidence in their ability to function effectively, the children learn they are incapable. The goal seems to be to break down each child’s spirit, in the hope of creating a group mentality. Socialists like that outcome.

At the end of this process, where is the individual human and that individual’s relationship with God? This child’s only relationship is with a group. Otherwise the child is conformist and stunted. Abstract thinking is reduced. Horizons of every kind are limited, by design.”

His statement makes the point of why I think it is such a specious argument to suggest that school provides “social” training. No it doesn’t. It provides indoctrination in socialism and progressivist thinking. I have yet to meet an “unsocialized homeschool child.” They just don’t exist. Maybe they aren’t like a typical school child, but individuality is beautiful.

Mr. Price, in his article, points out how the schools, more specifically, our federal government in the schools, are against Christianity and all other religious and philosophical teaching that exults the individual, the soul, and human free will.

Progressivism and leftist thinking in general is against the human soul. The schools are filled with it because so many leftists and progressives have been stacking the deck against us for decades now. It even affects the best of our teachers. It is a sad circumstance, and we all need to do our part to support the children and the teachers as well as we can.

For us and our boys, that means taking them out of the schools and teaching them at home.

Also, as to unsocialized homeschoolers, well, Kris says some of us are, well, at least we are a little weird. She is probably right.
