Skip to comments.Don't sacrifice your children: Joseph Farah gives solution to failing government schools

Some people say America's government schools are performing so badly and miseducating children so profoundly that the dumbing down process must be part of a deliberate conspiracy.
I tend to disagree because, knowing the nature of government and how inefficient it is, if government were deliberately trying to make our kids dumber, they would likely be much smarter.
Such is my faith in government's ability to achieve results even bad results.
But whether or not it's a deliberate plot to dumb down our kids intellectually and morally it's time for you to put a stop to it.
What can you do?
People often ask me what they can do to restore freedom and righteousness in America.
"Please don't tell me to write my congressman," a typical letter says. "I've tried that. They are all unresponsive. They don't care. They are part of the problem ignoring the Constitution, passing more and more laws and spending my money on a growing list of programs that are illegal, immoral and detrimental to the health of the nation."
I tend to agree with such sentiments.
Congress is unresponsive. Congress is clueless. Congress has forgotten or ignored its responsibility to follow the Constitution.
Let me tell you about one surefire way to get Washington's attention and get our country back on track. I guaranty it will work if even 10 to 20 percent of Americans follow my advice. And, best of all, this strategy is something that will save your children from unhappiness, ignorance and abuse by the government even if it does not touch off a freedom revolution.
I'm talking about pulling your children out of the clutches of the government schools.
It's the right thing to do for your kids and for your country.
Some 2 million kids in America are now being taught at home a direct result of the declining standards of government schools.
When that number reaches 5 million, critical mass will have been reached. The whole system will begin to implode. It will mark the beginning of the end of the government monopoly on schools in America. It will mark the beginning of a peaceful revolution not unlike the one we witnessed a decade ago in the Soviet Union.
It starts with people saying no. It starts with awareness and resistance. It starts with saving your kids from abuse and indoctrination.
Whenever I present this message, I have some Christian parents who tell me separation from the broader culture is wrong that it's not what Jesus preached.
Listen to the Apostle Paul (II Corinthians 6:14): "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?"
Many Christians are familiar with this verse and take it to heart when it comes to issues such as marriage. But why doesn't it apply to the schooling of our precious children? Why do we feel OK about casting them to the wolves of the world?
Paul continues (II Corinthians 6:17-18): "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."
Jews, you have been likewise commanded. Read Isaiah 52:11: "Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out of thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord."
No, believers, you are not supposed to expose your children to unrighteousness, nor put them under the yoke of pagans and infidels and false gods. I don't know where you get this mistaken belief. Your job as a parent is to protect your children, raise your child, not to run your child over to non-believers to be raised.
You want to know how to fix your family and your country? The most important step you can take is to pull your kids out of school and to start fulfilling your principal responsibility as a parent educating them.
It's not your congressman's responsibility. It's your job. Take it seriously. It's summertime and the living may be easy. Come September, don't sacrifice your kids on the altar of the most high secular state.
Make a difference in your child's life, and be part of a gentle revolution to take this country back.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Thomas said the same thing, the only way to effect change is to pull the kids out and then the system will collapse and have to be reinvented, hopefully for the better.
Either way, the responsibility of the parent is to see that their child is not subjected to the garbage that is being spewed in the public education system.
I liken the public school system to the city dump. Letting my kid play in the city dump will sicken his body, exposing him to the pollution of the public education system will sicken his young mind.
Well said, dawn.
