Why we homeschool in one easy image


Yep.  From Broward County public schools.  Taking kids to a field trip at a local gay bar, for gay bar is what it is.  

Life would be infinitely better for us if we didn't homeschool.  Since becoming Catholic, we've been jumping from one frying pan to the next, with occasional dips into the fire.  In most worlds, we wouldn't homeschool because, if for no other reason, we are hardly set up to do so financially.

Nonetheless, the above is not the exception, but simply an extreme example of the rule today.  And this doesn't count the 'hate yourself white people' race hate, the anti-Americanism, the pro-Marxism (my sons' World History textbook gave kudos to such luminaries as Marx, Lenin and Mao, as opposed to our own racist and imperialist presidents), the secular template for religion, and the various leftwing indoctrination tactics that have kept us homeschooling.

I've said before that class content wasn't why we chose to homeschool.  Even a decade ago, things weren't this bad.  But when the bureaucracy steamrolled one of our sons, in the absence of a local Catholic school or even private school, we went radical.

Back then, one of Mark Shea's most celebrated post subjects was his 'why we homeschool' threads. When I emailed him for advice on a homeschool curriculum, he posted that and the readers posted multiple suggestions in the comments section.  We settled on the Kolbe Academy, based in California, accredited, and able to bestow an actual high school diploma on the students.  It's also a classical based education curriculum. 

For that post and advice at CAEI, I'm forever grateful.  It helps keep the boys grounded and able to see past the bilge, lies and ruinous values promoted by our schools - and society - today.  But such is life in a country whose faith is a godless paganism.  So whatever the cost, in the foreseeable future, it will be homeschool all the way.   It beats my son being taught to hate his skin color while being shuttled over to the nearest gay bar.  


  1. Oh Dave you want reasons?

    I can give you reasons for days...

    1. Wow. I can't imagine. I think of the things we thought were racy back in the day. Our schools remind me more and more than Germany had a public school system in the 1930s, too.

  2. This is why school board elections are so important. Anyone reading this, please look up the dates of your next school board Elections, organize a campaign to get normal, decent people elected (conservative, libertarian,
    oldt8me liberal, anyone not into the wokeness stuff) and fight like heck.
    Stock up on lawyers for when the State and Feds come after you and stock up on pepper spray, fire extinguishers and smoke bombs for when Antifa comes after you (make sure you have a gun-toting militia force on speed-dial, in case things get really bad). I'm going to start the process in my parish this coming Sunday. I urge you all to do so as well.
    This is super important. If we don't do this now, we're screwed (if it isn't already too late).

    1. I was a school board trustee from 1990 to 2000. I learned that the locals are financial slaves of the federal govt. One dollar of fed money beholds the locals board to the federal govt. I could have run for a 4th term unopposed but declined because it appeared the situation was not fixable. Today we homeschool.

    2. Simple answer. Don't expect federal funds. I don't understand why that's so hard.
