"If you tell people this stuff no one will believe you."

You're right. They don't. When I tried to explain the mission of today's public schools to older members of my family, they said I was nuts.

Try talking to an older generation about the public schools. They still think that the public schools are the ones they grew up with in the 30's, 40's, and 50's -- you know, reading, writing, arithmatic, history, etc. Little do they know because they don't want to know. They see a beautiful school building with well-manicured grounds and they think that the school is a "good" school. They really don't know what's going on inside when the classroom door
shuts.

The older women in my family think Hillary is just great and can't wait for her to run for President. They also like Janet Reno. They think it's too bad she lost in Florida. God help America.

And the younger generations are too indifferent to bother finding out. The government school system is ingeniously designed. I pray that the homeschool movement unravels it. On the surface, the school waters seem fairly placid. But two freight trains are barreling in opposite directions. On the one hand, the liberals are consolidating their hold on the inmates with School-to-Work, OBE and homosexual propaganda. On the other hand, you have the voucher and homeschool movements shaking the very foundations of the structure. I see it as a toss up. But it's going to break one way or the other in the next twenty years.
