I can hear a collective sigh from teacher’s across the country…”this is exactly why we didn’t want Trump in office” many of you might be thinking. Well, please read on, because I hope to make an effective case for the damage the public school system has done to our nation, and an even better case for why destroying their monopoly will, long-term, bring our nation back to where it once was.
So what has public school done to shred the fabric of our nation? I have three things, and all of them are equally devastating. A quick disclaimer: I have two kids in public school, and not all teachers are as bad as the ones I will describe below…painting with too broad a brush will make us no better than black lives matter.
1. Taking God out of school and replacing Him with Humanism
All things about God are despised by the liberal left and academia. They hate that they have someone to be held accountable too. They hate that the gifts and talents that they have were given to them by a creator and not something solely of their own accord. They hate the fact that they cannot play/be god if there is a real, true God in heaven. So how do they get around a loving Creator? They replace him with cold and calculated, confirmation bias laden scientists. Now again, I am NOT painting all scientists into this category. Many scientists though are in their field daily trying to disprove the existence of God. They want to make sure that the next generation of leaders look at God as a fairy tale to be laughed at, not believed in. Regardless of the fact that evolution and creation are BOTH scientific theory (no one was there to observe either of these events and neither can be recreated in a lab), they want courts to take one out of the classroom and they want to force teachers to advocate the other as “settled science”.
2. Pushing the fallacy that the only unprotected class is white men.
I for one am tired of being told that Muslim’s Blacks, Hispanics and women are all protected classes…and they are all being “protected” from the evil hatred of white men. Feminism was NOT supposed to be about the superiority of women, but about fighting for equality of women. Civil rights was not JUST about the rights of blacks in the USA, but the establishment of civil rights for ALL. Yet, in 2017, white men are bashed DAILY from Hollywood, to the local news, to our children’s classrooms. If this line of thought is not addressed and stopped, we will soon be looking at white men being persecuted the same way as many of the other classes of people have said they have been treated. Do not get me wrong…people can be awful to each other, and there has been racism and sexism in our nation. However, if you can really look at our nation today and ONLY see white on black racism, or ONLY men on women sexism, they you are either not looking or willingly blind to what is actually happening.
3. Trying to take the place of parents
To be fair, many parents in the USA have abdicated their role willingly as the state has moved in and tried to claim our children as their own, and a HUGE place where this has become almost accepted is in public schools. How dare you try to tell me what I must feed my child. How dare you force me to drop my children off at a building with strangers and then all these stranger to shove my children’s heads with liberal propaganda. Parents MUST rise up and start acting like the leaders in their home and in their communities that they need to be. The fact that DeVos is now the head educator in our nation gives me hope that public schools as we have known them are all but done for in our nation, but should school’s ever attempt to take over our children’s brains again, we must look back at this era in our country and say absolutely no…NEVER again.
The absolute BEST thing that can happen in our nation is 100% school choice. If parents are allowed to have the tax dollars they pay, follow their children to the school that they want their child to attend, it would force public schools to innovate or die. They either become competitive and fight for the tax dollars, or the go bankrupt and fade away like other businesses who fail to compete. This will be one of the best things we can do to ensure that liberal lies do not take control of any future generations in our nation…eliminate the opportunity for brainwashing by liberal elite in the classroom.
