The Truth Is Out. We Don’t Need
The Public School System.

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/18/2020 9:38:33 AM

A recent article in The Atlantic tells us that the pandemic has families leaving the public school system in droves and embracing homeschooling. This shift, we are told, may be permanent. From the article:“Homeschooling families, which included roughly 3 percent of school-age children in the United States in 2016, have lots of different reasons for wanting to educate their own kids. But they’re united in a common assessment: They want out of the traditional system. The question is whether COVID-19 will cause a temporary bump in homeschooling as parents piece together their days during the pandemic or mark a permanent inflection point in education

Great! We get to teach our kids the basics and scrap the leftist propaganda. Should have done this long ago. Parents have control, not faceless beurocrats.

FTA: " . . . the school system has let the truth slip: we don’t actually need it. Society can function without it." Finally! Finally - - someone other than myself has realized that government involvement in education is the real problem. The only solution - - as I posted in the previous thread - - is to end all government ownership, operation, or subsidization of schools. Let the free market decide when, where, what, and how children - - and adults - - are educated. Free markets TROUNCE socialism every time. L-Dotters - - of all people - - should realize this and fight to completely end government schools. Thank you, Matt Walsh - - I am not alone - - I am not alone!

Public schools are "day care centers" more than anything. That's the big whine, that parent(s) doesn't have the time or ability to teach or manage their kids at home. What the kids learn at school... Parents demanded schools teach their kids "values" and now they have that. Problem was/is that many have discovered those values don't comport with theirs. They elect teacher union dominated school boards filled with "education activists". Now they get what was demanded. As Mencken said, they deserve to get what they wanted good and hard.

Children should be told HOW to think, not WHAT to think. We home-schooled both of our boys K-12. The younger one then went to college for HIS indoctrination... but he will survive it. I remember sitting in a political science class during my senior year in high school back in 1975. I realized right then and there that the main goal of a public education was to raise compliant tax payers. For the last 20 years that has shifted to raising an army of godless soldiers to destroy the U.S. from within.

This is a silver lining coming out of the covid hoax; an (I'm sure) unintended consequence that the left didn't see coming. They are short-term thinkers.....when they think at all. I do not have school age kids but I have noticed numerous signs along the roads pointing parents to alternative schooling choices available to them. One is posted outside one of our local middle schools which has closed again temporarily due to two covid cases. I'd be willing to bet that a good number of parents are taking steps to look into alternatives. May the school bell toll for the death of the public school system....not to mention teachers unions.

This is a great reset opportunity. Leftists believe anything government belongs to them, and they can use it however they please. These fools have babies as young as three years old under their control.

Leftists have made the government schools into enemy propaganda indoctrination centers. Shut them ALL down. Give the parents right to direct the tax funds now wasted on NEA horror shows to any private school that they choose.

we don't need the public school system as it is administered today. it is a shameful exhibition of using propaganda and tidbits of facts to demonstrate that the United States is the worst country ever to exist, in the history of mankind. communists are foaming at the mouth thinking that they will someday control this country. they forget that this is a very big country and can only be governed with the consent of the governed. that's us!! I'm not ready for that and I don't think there are many of us who are ready for that. TRUMP 2020 and beyond

The biggest impediment to decent educations for our kids has always been tenure and the unions. Both work tirelessly and very expensively to hinder parents being able to clean up their local districts. Get rid of tenure and make teaching merit based again. This profession should never be allowed to ever protect the rotten, incompetent or the bullies of that profession ever again.

My niece recently moved to NC and was very unhappy with the government schools. We send some money to them each month to subsidize their Christian homeschooling system that they are now doing. Fortunately, both my nieces now have their kids out of government schools. One more nephew to head in that direction, but that may be a problem, his wife is a school teacher. But it is SC, so perhaps the schools will hang on a bit longer teaching the right stuff.

Public education was actually excellent, PRIOR to the federalization of it and the creation of teachers' unions, thanks to Jimmah Carter. It's no wonder curriculum has become so politically biased and corrupt. This article shows that the unions are irrelevant to getting children educated. I hope enough parents are realizing this, that their children are enjoying the many benefits from actually learning something, and break away from the quagmire of the federal system.

President Donald Trump on Saturday announced that a woman is in 'first place' to receive his Supreme Court nomination to fill the vacancy caused by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death. He named two conservative women who he has elevated to federal appeals courts as contenders, a move that would tip the court further to the right. Trump, who now has a chance to nominate a third justice to a lifetime appointment on the court, named Amy Coney Barrett, 48, of the Chicago-based 7th Circuit and Barbara Lagoa, 52, of the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit as possible nominees.

Sen. Mitt Romney’s spokesperson pushed back against claims that the Republican was “committed” to not confirming a new Supreme Court Justice until 2021. News of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday sparked immediate panic in liberal America and, with meltdowns over filling her vacant seat on the high court, eyes turned to lawmakers who would be part of the confirmation process. But reports that Romney had taken a stand against voting on a nominee before the election turned out to be “fake news.”

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday at the age of 87. Her passing was not unexpected. On the contrary, her steadily worsening condition over the past several years left her increasingly incapacitated. After Donald Trump’s election in 2016, many on the Left expressed dismay that she chose to stay on the court rather than resign and let President Obama nominate her replacement. Liberals feared she would die during Trump’s presidency, and her seat—which they regard almost as their sacrosanct property—would be in the hands of a Republican president and Republican-controlled Senate. That fear proved prescient. But few expected the moment would come so close to the November election.

The latest contrived issue to bedevil the left is President Trump’s statement to Bob Woodward in March that he was downplaying the virus to avert panic. Leftists have interpreted this attempt to avert panic as a “lie,” even though they have never shown any ability to discern truth from lies in the past. So this week, the leftists are betting their chips on the Woodward book.Missing from this discussion is any description of the events of March 2020. We all had good reason to want to stop the panic at that time. As news of the virus began to dominate public discussion, the left did its best to create

WASHINGTON — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday of “complications of metastatic pancreas cancer,” the Supreme Court announced.“Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said in a statement. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.” The development will give President Trump the opportunity to name her replacement, and Senate Republicans have promised to try to fill the vacancy even in the waning days of his first term.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural, and feminist icon has died. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from cancer. Architect of the legal fight for women's rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation's highest court, becoming its most prominent member. Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.
