I thank God that my grandchildren aged 9 and 14 have never seen the inside of a government school, at least not as students. The oldest attended a private Christian school through 3rd grade before their mother decided to home school both kids. The standardized tests that the state board of education requires them to take show that they have advanced further in all subjects than have their friends of approximately the same age who attend government schools.

And more important, to me at least, the tenets of their parents' Christian faith are reinforced by the purchased course of study that their mother uses to teach instead of being ridiculed and "debunked" as they are today in so many government schools. However, I will say that based on personal experience there are still many teachers working in government schools who try to swim against the tide as best they can without being reigned in by their superiors, and they should be appreciated and commended by parents whose kids are fortunate enough to have them as their teachers.

But even so, as a senior citizen, aka cranky old fogey, who is still sufficiently cognizant of his surroundings to remember the time when public schools were in the business of educating kids in preparation for adult life in the God-honoring America that once was instead of indoctrinating them with collectivist, multiculturalist, atheistic, pro-homosexual propaganda, I urgently advise all parents to get your kids out of the dens of iniquity that now epitomise public schools, and either home school or enroll them in a Christian school that has earned a reputation for academic excellence and advocating Christian moral principles.

(Sorry about that over-long last sentence, I hope no one is out of breath after reading it.)

I thank God for the faithful remnant such as you and your family. If America should survive for a while longer, it will be due to the efforts of faithful remnant.
