Colin Gunn and Joaquin Fernandez present, Indoctrination: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity, one of their objectives being "to equip the homeschooling public with the ammunition necessary to effectively defend our educational choices....using these resources to graciously challenge our brothers and sisters who are still deceived by the public school system."
Whereas this book did not convict or further strengthen my personal stance to homeschool, it did open my eyes to the horrors of the public school system. It was outright scary. One article after another exposing the not so hidden socialist agenda promulgated throughout the system sent shock waves. Does the public school system have its problems? Certainly. However, this outright crusade to indoctrinate children throughout this country, whether through mental manipulation or drugs, is blatant and intentional.
As a former educator, thankfully for only a short while, the role seems to be clearly defined as one of complacent obedience. Teachers are no longer trained and hired to teach but to diagnosis. Mediocrity and failure are the new standard and thus encouraged. The goal for appealing to the masses has replaced integrity, work ethic, and overall motivation. Teachers unwilling to submit are weeded out.
This is not one author's opinion but a collaboration of experts, educators, and parents who have thoroughly researched this topic and provide many references and not simply personal opinions or experience. Anyone in the aforementioned categories should look closely into this resource and identify their role as willing conformist or combatant against a system designed to strip parents of their God-given right to educate their children with a Biblical worldview.
Let us all beware that their socialist agenda is clear--death and destruction to morals, values, and the family. They want to warp and pervert children from very young to serve their own twisted agendas. This book is a battle cry for any parent having school aged children to wake up. The call to action might not be changing the system, but rather not allowing one's children to participate in it. Neutrality is not an option.
I received complimentary copy of this book from New Leaf Publishing in exchange for an independent and unbiased review.
