I am so grateful that I live in a state that has reasonable laws about education, although there should be no laws because the children do not belong to the state, but rather the parents.
We are in our 21st year of educating our children, and we’ve gone from one extreme to another as we have figured out our family’s philosophy and style.
Being responsible for our children’s education plays a huge part in our ability to be free. We cannot be free nor prosperous when we are dependent upon the state. Our children are our future, they are OUR responsibility. It is true that the hand that rocks the cradle rocks the nation… who is rocking the cradle?
I LOVE this quote by Joel McDurmon:
“…we must understand that government schools are at the heart of the problem of government-dominated society. We can change this personally now, and we should. All that is stopping us is the perceived benefit of free schooling and daily childcare. This is the cheese in the trap. Don’t take the cheese. Do we really want a free society, or do we depend on tax-funded benefits like the liberals and socialists we criticize?” - Joel McDurmon
Do you trust the government with your money? Do they spend tax dollars wisely? Then why would you trust them with your children for the majority of their childhood?!
