Homeschooling is not for everyone. Everyone can, however, teach their kids to not be brain dead zombies that believe everything they learn in school.
I know I'll get shit for this, and homeschooling is great but doesn't work everyone. What alarms me more than "not everyone homeshools" is "if you don't homeschool, your letting your kid get brainwashed."
Is your influence not enough to sway them to not buy bullshit? That should be your main priority. Teaching your kids to recognize and question bullshit. To take what they hear in school with a grain of salt. To recognize the difference between fact and opinion. To let learning, not school be of high importance.

This is bullshit. I grew up in a conservative family and through public school, adults, and friends I became a brainwashed liberal. No, your influence is not enough when children go to school almost as much as a full-time job and spend the remainder of their time socializing and doing homework. Why exactly do you think TPTB wants such a firm grip on education?

I'm torn on this comment. On the one hand, I think you're right. On the other, I think people should think for themselves always, regardless of presented information. Question everything you hear.

A motto I love: "Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see."

Easier said than done. Parents that "can't" homeschool are either single parents or are both working. They don't have the time to go over what the kids are really learning. Don't doubt for a second that the most pervasive indoctrination isn't coming home in a book that parents can point to. Posters on the wall and in places parents don't go, like the cafeteria will say things kids see, digest and have no reason to repeat.

Things said, not written and a teachers disapproving looks or approving looks do shape kids.

This is correct. I remember after school each day, my parents would ask me how school was. My reply was always the same. "Fine."

Kids don't know when they're being brain washed. And with all the stuff they hear over the course of the day, the chance that they come home and tell you about the objectionable parts are slim to none.

Homeschooling doesn't have to be difficult. If you seek out other home schooling families in your area, you can team up and each take the kids one or two days a week. If the parents are smart enough to understand the need for home schooling, they're smart enough to present the curriculum.

It's not that you shouldn't be involved or be able to influence them, but if all you're doing when you come home from work and them from school is trying to undo what someone has been trying to hammer into their brains every day, what do you accomplish? Especially with the state constantly trying to push its authority to take the child for whatever reason it deems fit?

I'd teach my future 3 year old how to swing an axe before I let some commie cunt slip her virus into his mind

What 7 year old will be able to take everything with a grain of salt or even a 15 year old. It's the parents job to teach the kid. Not the government. It's basically having kids taught by a complete stranger when you hand them over to public school. Stranger is too nice of a word. Practically all public school teachers are communists.

In Germany, it's illegal to home school kids. The German police will take your kids away if you try to home school them. Think about that one. This one German family made the news because they wanted to home school their kids. I believe they fled to Russia.

In most Europoor countries, homeschooling is illegal. Of course.

Live within your means. It doesn't take two salaries 'just to live these days', you require two salaries because you've deeply indebted yourself and spend more than you earn in order to live a lifestyle that is outside of your means.

The alternative to the indentured servitude you've put yourself in isn't living in a 'one room apartment' and 'eating out of the trash'. It's living comfortably while not impulse spending on shit you don't need.

If you lack the resourcefulness and critical thinking skills to figure out how to home, feed, and clothe your family without dumpster diving or going deep in debt then you deserve your slave status. Sick of this victim of society meme.

Not everyone has the luxury of time and money to homeschool their children.

Sorry. I've got to politely call BS on this. It's all about priorities. I know many many homeschool (or alternative school) families - some are wealthy and some are very poor. It's 100% about priorities and what you believe is important in your life.

The only reason one can't homeschool is if they are single parent households. If that's because of death then they have my sympathies and support. (But, in the grand scheme of things, those situations are rare.)

If they are a single parent household because they suck as adults and suck as parents - then my original point stands - they are too selfish to make the raising of their kids a priority.

Stuff like this (and other shit I've seen in the past in college books) makes me question everything I've learned about history and the past. Makes you wonder if people were really "racist" back in the day. Like when the KKK supposedly encompassed half of the US population, why didn't they just take over and kill every black person?

No one has ever just hated every black person. The KKK stopped them from doing what landed a million of them in prison now. It's not as bad as being a tree ornament when you have that time preference, but somehow it's worse to get shot by the cops when you'd be expected to

The KKK was jew/freemasonic controlled oppo. Look it up. 'Kikel' is a circle, hence why they called them 'kikes' when they came here because they used a circle instead of an X when signing documents. KKK is a reference to that. Also, lookup Daniel Burrows. Most of these White supremecist movements are run or infiltrated by kikels.

The kkk was a great organization back in the day, they really had their priorities straight. They hated niggers and Catholics. If only I had been born 100 years earlier.

The first thing you learn when you get out of school is that just about everything you have been taught is a lie to some degree. The most important lesson I was ever taught while in school was this it's not important what the "correct answer" is... give them the answer they want, get your A and get the fuck out. You have to play the game to win.

What I really want to know is... what textbook is this? Which schools are it in? Can I know which year and author? Just highlighted text proves nothing, honestly. I want to know who wrote this so I can aim my vitriol their way.

Teach them propaganda techniques, and ask them to identify examples in school work. Take historical pieces and modern. Which ideas seem more accurate, why? Who uses it, for what purpose? How do different countries use it? Public schools generally are not about excellence; that is achieved by ones own efforts.
