A 7-year-old in 2nd grade came home and said, "Mom, Dad, guess what. Our teacher read us the funniest book. It was so silly. It was about a prince who was getting married, but he didn't marry a princess. He married a prince! Isn't that so silly, Mom?" The book read to the confused child to introduce 7-year-olds to same-sex marriage is "King and King" by Linda de Haan.

Without parental knowledge or consent, 5-year-old Jacob entering kindergarten came home with a "diversity book-bag." Inside was a book introducing kindergartners to same-sex households, celebrating Clifford and her dad's "partner," Henry – selling homosexuality to 5-year-olds disguised as diversity. The book is "Who's in a Family" by Robert Skutch. http://bit.ly/2FPJQDh

Folks, if my public school arrogantly usurped such authority when I was a kid, my stocky little-over-5-foot black mom would have been outraged. She'd march to my school and angrily confront the principal, "Who do you people think you are? How dare you take such liberty with my 9 months!"

Please correct me if I am wrong. But all I see is parents passively allowing Leftists to mold and shape students into their image. God commanded parents, "Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). Where is the outrage over government usurping authority to dictate the morals, principles, and values instilled in your child, overruling God- ordained parental authority?

With Leftists pushing over 70 genders onto the mainstream http://bit.ly/2iytyY7, Leftists are banning teachers from addressing students as "boys and girls," calling the term mean-spirited and non-inclusive. http://fxn.ws/2aSCFyy

Notice this tactic routinely used by Leftists. While Americans are minding their own business, Leftists attack, pushing their outrageous ideas on us, while portraying themselves as victims of our intolerance, hate, and aggression.

Whitney Houston was correct when she sang, "I believe the children are our future." This is where the true battle for America's future is being fought; in the hearts and minds of our kids.

A haven of rest, healing, and safety for parents and their children is homeschooling.

This is why Leftists are attacking, using government to politically bomb these safe havens, hellbent on making homeschooling illegal. http://bit.ly/2HFakHT

Homeschooling is far superior to government indoctrination camps obsessed with teaching social justice, white guilt, gun control, homosexuality, and abortion and conspiring against and fostering disobedience to parents.

Eighty-two percent of public schools are failing. http://bit.ly/2IvVlBB Despite spending $1.4 billion annually, around $16,000 per student, reading proficiency for Baltimore high school grads is around 11%, with 12% in math proficiency. And yet, the Baltimore school system graduates around 70% of its students every year. In other words, a large number of Baltimore's graduates can barely read their diplomas. http://bit.ly/2FPjrFw

Years ago, circumstances forced my brother and his wife to remove their 10-year-old son from a private Christian school. Making the adjustment into public school was stressful for their son. He was hated for raising his hand too often, knowing the correct answers. He was even bullied because of his posture, taught to sit correctly in his chair. To survive, my nephew purposely dumbed-down.

My black buddy was a Baltimore cop who headed city-sponsored mentoring programs, youth choirs, and more. Ten years ago, he retired and moved to Montana. He moved back to Baltimore three years ago and was asked to resume working with youths. Seeing youths throwing rocks at police cars, hating cops, rioting, and no officials willing to support real discipline, my buddy said he wants nothing to do with Baltimore's youth crisis. My former Baltimore cop buddy said he is also soured by city officials' insane hatred for guns.

Leftists tend to share a bigotry of lowered expectations regarding minorities. I argued with a Miami white middle school teacher who, despite parent's objections, thought Hispanic students should not be forced to learn English. I've read numerous biographies of immigrant celebs who said learning English was crucial to their success in America.

In California, public schools pushed to allow black students to speak Ebonics rather than being pressured to learn correct English. http://slate.me/1rzRfwH

Popular among homeschoolers is the VARK model theory, which outlines 4 kinds of learners. http://bit.ly/2piEZE5 Some kids are visual learners, while others are auditory learners, reading/writing learners, and kinesthetic learners. By understanding how your child processes information, you can design a teaching program that is right for them. This ain't happenin' in government school-halls of mass mediocrity.

Meeting countless families with children in my 10 years of traveling as a political activist, I've learned to immediately recognize homeschooled children. They are happy, calm, polite, articulate, filled with information, and confident, always looking me in the eye when speaking to me.

Until parents get their act together and begin taking back public education; running for school boards, putting their feet down, and more, homeschooling is the way to
go – the best hope for America's future.
