A Nation in crisis
Our nation is in crisis. It would appear as if the general public has become desensitized to the daily disasters occurring on our own soil. I cringe and I wonder why we continue to exacerbate the problem by allowing government to have such a stake in the way we raise our children. That’s right- the government is raising our children, and until the nation’s failing education system can be completely overhauled, we continue to allow them to breed neo communists.
Public schools tout equality and tolerance- just not for those with Christ-centered values. Critical Race Theory, the teaching of mindsets to align with the 2030 Global Agenda, and sexual grooming are just some of the atrocities that abound in our nation’s “government schools” today. Until this system is broken down, we continue to raise up children who accept and promote the very things that bring us closer and closer to a communist state. Far-fetched you say? Fascism is the idea that the government doesn’t have the power to regulate certain things…but they can and do partner with big companies who can. In other words, you see the problem as big tech and big pharma, when in all actuality, you are only seeing the face of a backroom deal; a government-backed agenda. In essence, Fascism is the idea of a semi-open market. It is the gateway; the method of control over the media, propaganda and yes- the schools.
Never before have parents questioned the legitimacy of the content being delivered to their children as they are now. This is not without good cause, as the word of God tells us that when false information is presented as truth, the result is confusion and unrest. Here in New Jersey, bill A4454 quietly passed in January 2021 while the world was distracted with the COVID 19 pandemic. This bill mandates schools immediately incorporate lessons for students in Kindergarten through grade 12 which shall:
(1) highlight and promote diversity 1 15 , including economic diversity1 , equity, inclusion, tolerance 1 , 1 and belonging 1 16 [on topics including:] in connection with1 gender and sexual orientation 1 [;] , 1 17 race and ethnicity 1 [;] , 1 disabilities1 [;] , and1 18 religious tolerance; 1 [and unconscious bias;
This bill mandates instruction in the areas of transgenderism and other alternative lifestyles to children as young as age 5. These teachings place children in especially vulnerable and dangerous positions and have in fact caused our youth great confusion and unrest. Our failing education system is reflected in staggering statistics regarding youth in America.
But don’t worry! Our government schools; the very institutions that bred these problems will swoop in and save the day. To solve for the deep emotional trauma they caused, the powers that be are pouring your tax dollars into making sure that each and every student has the social and emotional supports they need to combat these problems. These statistics and the Covid 19 pandemic serve as excellent means to justify the widespread implementation of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) in schools. The same government agencies that said masks didn’t work, then they did, that said the vaccine prevented Covid, until… it didn’t. The very same government agencies are now saying that the isolation and trauma your children suffered as a result of the shutdowns is cause for the schools to step in and ensure their mental health and well-being take precedence over academic loss. Furthermore, that the social and emotional well-being of children is best addressed by educators, not counselors, not parents, but by teachers with little to no training on this new-age Social Science.
SEL, has no substantial evidence to support its value, is based on subjective topics like religious beliefs, personal morals and values, and is taught using invasive and illegal surveying of our children. To significantly expand upon this topic, I’d need time and you would likely need a drink. For now, I’ll assert that SEL is the vehicle by which the government has ushered in another back room deal right under our noses.
It’s no secret that the public education system was designed to teach compliance. Today, the institution’s agenda is no different. Government schools prepare school aged children to develop mindsets to align with a new world order of thinking. This “global vision” is called Agenda 2030 and it is in direct opposition to God’s word. The manner in which this is done? By having young, active children sit behind a desk for hours, having them “discuss” rather than “do” in order for them to develop a shared vision of what the world could be. All this is done under the guise of Social-Emotional Learning to unite us into a more utopian community with a shared vision. But, as the word tells us, there is nothing new under the sun, and this global agenda is just another attempt to build the Tower of Babble.
Wait long enough and SEL in schools will brainwash our nation’s children to happily buy in, even welcome the idea of communism with open arms. The difference is they won’t call it that. No, instead they will call it, “empathy”, sustainable living to combat climate change, equality for all, and social justice. These are the concepts being drilled into their heads as you send them off to camp every day. It’s not that the average person doesn’t want these things, the difference is that many of these teachings overlap with deeply personal beliefs and the right to decide how and when to teach these concepts belongs to parents.
The way a child is educated essentially lays the foundation for the way they approach life. If a child is educated by way of sitting behind a desk, being told what to do, how to learn and that it’s disrespectful to disagree with anyone, then children will approach life waiting to be told what to do and how to do it. The problem of our schools is so deep that often times, consideration of a private school doesn’t necessarily fix the problem. It merely sends families from one broken system to another. The solution lies in the idea that education rest on the shoulders of parents. It is their right to decide what they want for their children and it is unconstitutional to withhold money from those who chose Christian education- or anything other than public school for that matter.
The future of education ultimately lies in absolute school choice; when public schools enter the free market and the money follows the child. Until then, we have to continue to speak up for those who cannot. Our children deserve parents who are willing to stand up to the government’s agenda to use them as pawns and to ready to advocate for our inalienable rights. As we take back the right to educate our children as we see fit, the idea of what “school” looks like is about to change dramatically. Big government, you are hereby notified- you have poked the bear one too many times. Until absolute school choice becomes a reality, I will use every ounce of my education, experience as a former school principal, and mother of two children who have been affected by the public schools to affect change. I am not alone. I speak on behalf of countless other parents who are ready and willing to insist on parental rights and absolute school choice.
