As we know, for many decades, the government's school system certainly has not educated citizens in the founding ideas, so where did all the so-called "Tea Partiers" learn so much about the ideas of their Declaration of Independence and Constitution?
Clearly, many self-educated by using modern technology, but there was a core group of citizens who possessed enough understanding to be a catalyst for stimulating the minds of the millions who now are speaking out on behalf of their liberty.
Twenty years ago, Dr. Samuel Peavey, then Professor Emeritus of the University of Louisville's School of Education, was traveling the country testifying before State Legislatures on the merits of the home school movement. A Google search of Dr. Peavey's testimony in the late 1980's and early 1990's will reveal his enthusiasm for the achievements of home schoolers, and the learning performance of children they were educating.
Although Peavey had spent his life teaching teachers for positions in public education, he testified to that system's failure to properly improve the learning performance of children and stated that home schooling was "the brightest spot" in education at that time.
Fox's report is interesting, but the achievements of home schooling have been impacting this nation for at least a couple of decades now, and the political climate may just now be returning to that which the Founders intended in the beginning--"an enlightened citizenry"--one which can recognize "approaching tyranny" and preserve liberty for future generations.
This is why the left will have to “do something” about homeschoolers.
It’s not just that they’re learning “dangerous ideas”,
but the caliber of scholar produced far outpaces those that government schools produce (on purpose).
One thing they might do is to “channel” gov’t school kids that show promise and have the “right” ideology into special government schools, like “leadership academies”.
