Homeschooling

And most private schools that I am aware of have waiting lists for every.single.grade....
I blame Teachers' Unions most of all, but plenty are complicit...

SNIP:
The number of kids going to school at home nationwide has doubled over the past two years. In 2019, there were about 2.5 million students learning at home. Today there are nearly 5 million. That means more than 11 percent of American households are educating their children outside of traditional schools.

In Wrobel’s state of Vermont, homeschool applications are up 75 percent. And that’s in the northeast, where regulations are strictest. The phenomenon is exploding across the country. In North Carolina, the site for registering homeschools crashed last summer. In California, applications for homeschooling tripled from 2020 to 2021. In Alaska, more than a quarter of students in the state are now homeschooled.

In Texas and Florida, parents are not required to notify the state, so it’s hard to know exactly how many kids are learning at home. But just one South Florida school, Jupiter Farms Elementary, saw 10 percent of its student population withdraw for this school year. Almost all of them are being taught at home.



The American Schoolhouse was in serious disrepair before 2020 — about that no one would disagree. But the events of last year tore the whole thing down to the studs. First, the pandemic. Then, the lockdowns. Then the summer of unrest: George Floyd, the protests, the riots, the mea culpas. Many local school boards seemed more concerned about teaching critical race theory and renaming schools than reopening them.

These were changes that rocked every American family.  So perhaps it’s no surprise that the homeschooling trend cuts across geographic, political, and racial lines: Black, Latino and Asian families are even likelier than white ones to educate their children at home.

Public schools are nothing more than passive detention centers and active indoctrination camps.

A preparation for the intense indoctrination of higher education, which has replaced High School — maybe even Jr. High — in terms of grade level and socialization centers (outside of STEM.  But even that is undergoing revision, thanks to wokeness).

As C. S. Lewis said, Christianity is an education unto itself; requiring the entirety of one’s person, especially their mind.  It is a necessary inoculation against the infection of militant Marxist m2m Whateverism that the education system is a hotbed and spreader of.  But one must be careful who they confide their vaccination to.  

If not inoculated with instructed, believing, doctrinal Christianity during their secular education, one runs the risk of being like me:  a confused, skull-full-of-mush, atheoid Whateverist m2m-er until well into their 30s.  No different than fuzz, Cincy, Zen, Max, et. al.  

Thank and praise God that I saw the light of Jesus Christ, before I was lost for good.

God at work?
He always is.
_______________

Psalm 121


New King James Version




God the Help of Those Who Seek Him
A Song of Ascents.
121 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to [a]be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your [b]keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall [c]preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve[d] your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
