PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE A FAILURE

The basic idea of public schools is a no brainer. The concept of placing our children in well-regulated classrooms with professional educators, paid for with tax dollars is a fabulous idea. What could go wrong? Well as it turns out, a lot can go wrong, and it has gone very wrong. Undoing the wrong is probably impossible at this point in time.

Keep in mind, as you read this, it is an opinion article. It’s my opinion based on what I see, and experience through family, friends and news articles. I am not one to bury myself in my own environment and ignore what is happening around me. I am an ardent observer of society.

I think the first thing a person needs to understand, is that a large percentage of human beings, are not naturally well behaved. Otherwise, there would be no need for laws, law enforcement, and lawyers. Humans need to be trained like domestic animals need to be trained. The larger and more lethal an animal is, the more important it is for proper training. Humans certainly fit into the lethal category.

If you are even a casual student of the bible and religion, the behavioral issue has been a problem since man was placed on the earth. It started almost immediately in the Garden of Eden and has continued forward until today.

Long before public education, churches were the educators and training centers for creating law abiding citizens. I think one could argue they were very successful. However, I would be the first to say that organized religion was not without its faults. Some bad things happened within the walls of houses of worship. Evil will find its way into every organization. Thankfully the good outweighed the bad and the overall effect on humanity was overwhelmingly positive.

CREATING GREAT CITIZENS HAS THREE IMPORTANT FACTORS.

As I said above in regard to training domestic animals, even though the animals are docile on the surface, the keepers of the animals still need to build fences to keep them contained. Even after an animal spends years of its life behind fences, it still yearns to be free, and will stand at the fence gazing into the distance, not realizing the fence is its protection from danger. Humans need the fences that spirituality, and adherence to law provide.

FIRST FACTOR: A STABLE HOME WITH TWO PARENTS OF GOOD CHARACTER.

This is probably the most important leg of the three and offers the most support. So many important lessons of societal functions are learned in a well-disciplined home. Especially if there are multiple children. The benefits are innumerable.

SECOND FACTOR: REGULAR CHURCH ATTENDANCE.

Churches of all denominations have one central theme, that you are subject to a higher power. They teach humility, and the need to control your emotions, and stay on a so called straight and narrow pathway through the obedience to God’s laws. One of the most important lessons churches teach is respect for yourself and your fellow man. Churches also teach obedience to man’s laws as well. Probably the single most important lesson of religion is how small your place is in the universe, yet how important you are to your Heavenly Creator.

THIRD FACTOR: EDUCATION

A good education will allow you to take a prominent position in society. Well-educated people with strong family ties, and religious convictions will always be recognized as outstanding by those around them. People of truly good character shine like a bright star and admired by all.

THE RELENTLESS ATTACK ON THE THREE BASIC INSTITUTIONS

The quest for total and complete control by the Democrats, and the apathy of the Republicans have brought us to this dire moment in our nation’s history. Religious, well-educated people from strong families are impossible to control. Those are the first people the Soviets executed in their rise to power. This has been played out hundreds of times in world history.

The left has done very well promoting promiscuity, and single parent lifestyle. The destruction of the traditional family naturally leads to a reduced tendency for the need of religion in one’s life. Primarily because religion is opposed to that type of lifestyle, and people feel like they will be judged for it.

This is where public schools could really take up the slack, but because they are almost 100% controlled by the left, you are only going to get a reinforcement of the ideas that created the problems in the first place. So, instead of the public schools being the last line of defense in our downward spiral of behavior and morals, they are promoting such behavior.

Instead of focusing on teaching students important skills to become upstanding members of society, they are sexualizing them, often aiding them in making poor life-altering decisions they are incapable of making at their young age.

I think you get the picture. Their goal is to create people who view the government as their savior, their religious experience. They are creating mindless robots to follow government orders without question. How more apparent could it be, when we have college graduates advocating for the end to free speech.

Politicians are nothing more than virtual termites eating away at the foundations of our Republic. The insecticide is truth. Spread it often, spread it freely. Eradicate the liars.
