As parents, my wife and I are constantly asked about how well our daughter is doing at school. She is doing very well, and is progressing at a level not matched by the majority of her peers. In spite of the obvious skills that our daughter has, there is a palpable pause, and indeed noticeable discomfort on the behalf of the individuals asking about our daughter's school, when they are told that she doesn't go to a conventional school, but is schooled at home.
Such is the impact of the socialisation of education, that the majority of people in the UK, consider it unhealthy, un-natural, and just plain wrong for a child to be educated by anyone other than an accredited teacher. There are even those who don't accept that homeschooling has any validity, and argue that it shouldn't be allowed. In some countries, homeschooling is illegal, and there are those in the UK who would like to see it proscribed here as well.
Why is there hostility to homeschooling? Why do people sincerely doubt the ability of parents to raise and educate their own children? Scare stories in the media and decades of propaganda about the dangers of not being 'normal' members of society, have taken their toll. By 'normal', the propagandists of course mean conformist. Those who dictate behind the façade of democracy, are wary of anyone who does not accept their rule, and use every means at their disposal to enlist the ordinary people into fighting against any threats to their control. Hostility to homeschooling is a result of a refusal to accept that Big Brother isn't magnanimous; it is an expression of defence of the prison state for fear of the consequences of freedom, such as responsibility, self-reliance, and having to think, act and feel for oneself.
In the UK, to become a teacher, one has to undergo a one year post-graduate course. Yes, one year! The course deals with how to control a class of 30 or more children, and how to implement government social-engineering lessons. The knowledge of the teacher from his or her chosen university degree course may, or may not, be useful in teaching, dependent upon which subject or subjects he or she is to teach. For example, a graduate in Sociology may have to teach English, despite the disadvantage of having learnt to write and speak in a bastardised Marxian version of the language!
When one begins homeschooling, it really doesn't matter if one is educated to degree level. Understanding the complexities of Statistical Analytical Procedure, or the different strands of thought involved in the Sociological study of Gender Issues, really does not help when it comes to teaching a child to read and write, to grasp the fundamentals of mathematics, or to do art and crafts.
Education is a vital part of a child's development, but the regimentation of education is un-necessary, and indeed injurious to the child. Regimented education prepares the child for his or her place in the class system. For those who are educated in the State sector, the strict conformity to the bell/buzzer, and the absolute insistence that the Teacher is always right, prepares the child for a subservient role in the economy. For those educated in the fee-paying sector (the bizarrely named Public Schools), the emphasis is on preparation for a managerial role, and the more expensive the school, the higher the level of management and of power in adult life. Thus, the Institutional School System, ensures the continuation of the Class System, and of Materialism as the be-all and end-all of life.
In official schools, the emphasis is clearly placed on conformity and obedience. Freedom of thought is forbidden, and where it raises its head, it is punished. In History lessons, children are taught that Europeans are basically evil due to their involvement in the African Slave Trade and their failure to prevent the Holocaust of European Jewry. Woe betide any child who dares to mention the fact that it was Jews and Arabs who created the Slave Trade, and that Europeans were enslaved by Jews and their Ruling Class collaborators before the same tragedy was inflicted upon Africans. Anyone who dares to question the fiction of the 6 million temporarily dead Jews, or even to accept the 'death camps' lie but protest the accusation that the sacrifice of Europe to create Israel was 'too little, too late', risks punishment which could include prosecution for thought crimes. Schools exists to disseminate propaganda, not to impart knowledge.
Homeschooling is time consuming, and it is not without costs. Teaching materials, pens, paper, and all the paraphernalia associated with education, have to be bought. There is no refund of taxes for not using the Establishment system, thus homeschooling effectively means paying for one's child's education twice over. However, monetary considerations should not be paramount. Yes, homeschooling requires sacrifice, but having children requires sacrifices.
A misunderstanding of homeschooling is that the education a child receives at school is superior to that it can receive elsewhere. This is nonsense. A child learning at home has the complete attention of the teacher, and even where there is more than one child present, the ratio of child to teacher cannot be as high as that in an external school. It is argued that discipline suffers when a child is at home; those who argue this may be referring to their own inability to discipline their children, but that doesn't mean that all parents are lazy or incompetent in looking after their own.
Home-schooled children tend to work harder than other children, and have fewer long holidays. They certainly do not have the chance to avoid doing work set for them, and if they ever utter the words 'my dog ate my homework', the chances are it will be true!
The State actively encourages parents to hand their children over to nurseries and pre-schools before giving them to more strangers in the school system itself. It is not uncommon for a child as young as one year-old to be given into the care of non-family members. If parents are willing to abrogate their parental responsibility in order to gain material wealth, then they do not deserve to have children at all. Such parents reduce themselves to breeders of the next generation of producer-consumers; victims of the anti-human State.
Do you want your children to be indoctrinated with internationalist propaganda? Do you want them to be taught that '9/11' was an act of aggression by mad Muslims motivated by jealousy of the 'freedom' of the West? Do you want your children to grow up supporting NATO's wars against humanity; to be promiscuous bisexual race-mixers; to have no love for anything but materialism; to have no culture; to have no spiritual or intellectual goals? Or do you want them to be free, feeling, thinking, intelligent, articulate, questioning human beings?
Unless you are happy for the feminists, homosexualisers, internationalists, materialists and all other enemies of humanity to destroy your children and any hope of them achieving a future of moral, cultural and spiritual worth, then you will do all you can to keep them out of the School System. The citizens of many countries are legally barred from home educating their children. In the UK we are still allowed to raise our own children as we see fit. If we do not make the fullest use of this opportunity, then we are collaborators with the destruction of society, and deserve the evils which our enemies are striving to make our reality. The prison door is closing. We have the chance to put a foot in the door and empower the next generation with the tools to restore freedom. This is a chance we cannot afford to miss. Our children deserve our fullest commitment; nothing less will do.
