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”.

Back in the days when it was illegal to teach blacks to read, there was homeschooling. It went on under the radar, and if it has to do so again, it will.

Way back when compulsory education was first instituted, and weeping children were frog-marched away from their families at bayonet point, the ever-efficient Prussians knew what they wanted.

The future of America depends on who wins the race for the top: the personally-trained lambs of the Lord's flock, or the janissaries[1] of The State. God is blessing our side, not theirs -- and the future of America is bright.


[1] The Ottoman Empire was run by slaves. Once a year, during the devrişme, each peasant village would hand over its quota of boys. Like Daniel, these lads would be incorporated into the Ottoman bureaucracy, highly trained, and used as the administrators and enforcers. These "new troops" (yeni çeri -- the term anglicized Janissary) were the first European soldiers to have a uniform, and military bands. Ceddin Dedan is a stirring marching tune from a few centuries ago that subject villages REALLY didn't want to hear coming in their direction! From time to time, the professional and ruthless troops marching in to inflict imperial punishment and discipline upon restive provinces were staffed with familiar faces, men who had been given over to the New Troops as boys.

Parent who support public schools are cooperating with the enemies of Christ in a project to exterminate Christianity. Unlike those Balkan villagers, they aren't even forced to do so, just hookwinked and beguiled to do so voluntarily -- "but OUR public school is DIFFERENT, you see."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The Marxists have this now. Do a Google search on the words: governor summer camp.

You will see that many states have a summer program for the gifted. They are, in essence, liberal/Marxist indoctrination camps. Doesn't it just warm you heart that your tax dollars get to pay for the destruction of our nation?
