IT’S PAST TIME TO OVERHAUL THE PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM
Everything is subject to age, and age takes its toll on everything, no exceptions. Everything in this world has a lifespan, no exceptions. It’s the world we live in, and for nations, companies, and private organizations, constant renewal and self-examination is critical for survival. I have personally seen companies floundering and slowly failing, bring in consultants to help them “fix things,” only to revert back to their old ways when the consultants leave, and ultimately fail. Human beings have an incredible overpowering tendency to believe that what they have been doing for extended periods of time is correct, when it isn’t.
It’s long past time for the Federal Government to stop regulating public education. It’s long past time for the Teacher’s Unions to be “booted” out of public education. It’s simply not working anymore. It is critically important that we fix education, it is paramount to our survival as a free society and leading world power.
Let’s talk about labor unions. As a young steel worker, I belonged to several unions over the years. I pursued union jobs because the pay rate and benefit packages were better than non-union jobs. I served my apprenticeship on my first union job. But, there were a lot of things I didn’t like about labor unions. Everyone gets equal pay and benefits in your particular classification. There were a lot of guys that were slackers, I was not one of them. I worked hard and it pissed me off that the slackers got the same pay and did less work. The unions protected them and made it almost impossible for the companies to fire them. Even though I was a high achiever, the unions made it impossible for me to earn a premium wage for my efforts.
I think you probably already figured out how this relates to public schools. The really lousy teachers get the same pay as the good ones, and the unions protect the lousy ones. Eventually, the inevitable happens. The good teachers find other jobs, and we are left with the lousy teachers that couldn’t find work anywhere else if their lives depended on it. The end result is predictable, it’s the overall degradation of public education.
WHERE DID PUBLIC SCHOOLS GET THE IDEA THAT OUR KIDS BELONGED TO THEM?
It’s very troubling when a government agency clearly and openly expresses their rights to control what they teach, and how they influence your child. Again, they are openly saying you no longer have parental rights over your child while they are on the school property. Considering all of the current government overreaches, this is probably the most disturbing.
Entrusting your child to the school for six hours a day, means you expect them to teach your child academics, and keep them safe from harm. Nothing more, nothing less. Nobody expects to find out the school administrators have been counseling your child to change genders. This is so far out of bounds it literally makes my head crazy. What gives these morons the idea they can mess with your family behind your back? If anyone did this to one of my mom’s kids, she would have opened up a super-size can of “whoop ass”. A nuclear war would have looked pale in comparison.
When this is going on in public schools, and the federal government and teachers’ unions are backing it, it’s all over folks, the system has rotted from the inside out. It’s time to tear it down and start over again and never let the feds or teachers’ unions near the reformed public schools.
PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP AND HOME SCHOOLING AND/OR ENROLLING THEIR YOUNG STUDENTS IN CHURCH BASED SCHOOLS.
My nephew and his wife have six children and are active Christians. My late brother’s wife, the kid’s grandmother, is their home schoolteacher. I had a long talk with her last year, as I was interested in the origins of the teaching materials and what they consisted of. The textbooks and other materials are purchased from a home-schooling network. I was amazed at the high quality and diversity of the subjects. After our conversation I came away with a totally different opinion of homeschooling. I’m convinced in today’s world, it’s a better way to educate your children.
In my neck of the woods, the Mennonite church has several highly accredited K-12 schools. I had the opportunity to tour one not far from my home, it was amazing. Super clean, well-organized, with great athletic facilities. The kids that come out of these schools, are very well educated. Also, I can tell you with absolute certainty that Critical Race Theory is not taught in Mennonite schools, or home schools. Don’t let them poison the minds of our kids.
IT’S GOING TO BE A LONG HARD FIGHT, BUT WORTH IT.
The left has virtually destroyed this country and its moral values. The left is the face of evil, it is the antithesis of law and order, and good moral character. We must never stop fighting to regain the dignity of what was once a great nation. Even if you can only do something small, a lot of small deeds by a lot of people amount to a powerful force. Never give up. Stay strong, stay vigilant and fight locally for righteous causes. God Bless all of you good and faithful Americans.

Here’s where it started:
At the 2022 Teacher of the Year ceremony hosted by the White House on Wednesday, President Biden claimed that school children don’t belong to parents “when they’re in the classroom.”
“They’re all our children. And the reason you’re the teachers of the year is because you recognize that. They’re not somebody else’s children. They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom,” he said.
They’re all sickos. They make me physically ill just looking at them.
