To the teaching and to the testimony! If they will not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn. -Isaiah 8:20
I am the product of public school. We'll pause for a moment of silence. OK, back. I lived in a very small town, and I had strong family teaching that protected me against the indoctrination that was present, even then, in that small town. However, it wasn't blatant then. It was incremental. After all, that's the best way to infiltrate the minds of a society. One foundation eroded at a time.
My early school day memories included personable, protective teachers who were strong on discipline and obedience in the classroom. They were loving, yet strict. Truly an extension of home. The "bad kids" were dealt with and swiftly. I remember few of them. I remember school plays depicting Easter and Christmas, the Pilgrims, and the Founding Fathers. I remember projects focused on the Constitution and our benevolent world status as a nation set apart.
By the time I entered middle school, the schools began extending their place in education, to "health." We had our eyes and hearing screened, and a new program of looking at and touching the backs of children for the purpose of "scoliosis screening" was implemented. It was a big deal if a family opted out of the "screening" as you had to sit apart in a little trailer, away from everyone, and you had to sign a form to opt out, not to get permission to be part of it! I remember my dad saying something was fishy, that the purpose of public school was not to look at my body, and he wondered if they were searching for any bump or bruise to pin abuse on parents. He whole-heartedly opted us out, commenting in question about "how many children in a small school could possibly have spinal deformities severe enough the school had to intervene?"
By the time I entered high school, the teachers seemed to be run by the students. Many students were drinking in the bathrooms during breaks, and doing drugs before and after school. The small-town teachers who acted as an extension of home, were replaced with science teachers peddling environmental Marxism and socialist utopian ideals taught by the teachers of history and economics.
This was a while ago, and since I'm a lady I will not disclose just how long ago, for a lady never reveals her age; but it wasn't that long ago. Today, I shudder about what is being dispensed at public schools. In America's rural small towns, there is no longer an island of isolation from the lies and filth of re-written history. There is no escape, even in conservative communities, from the abhorrent pressures of homosexuality, immorality, Marxism, environmental cultism and a hatred for all things good. In fact, many of these communities are the most vulnerable because they go about their education system under a false sense of goodness: assuming the schools promote what most in the community stand for. The logic breaks down, because these schools are not run by communities of parents, (parents today are far too busy for the most part anyway) but by Marxist school boards who have much to "pay back" to those to whom they are beholden.
Never before has education of our children been more imperative than now, with the implementation of the new nation-wide "Common Core/CSCOPE Curriculum". What is Common Core/CSCOPE?
Common Core and CSCOPE curriculum were adopted three years ago as a "bi-partisan" approach to standardizing educational requirements and as a means of evaluating success in learning. Widely supported and advocated by the Obama Administration, it's fundamental push was shrouded in simply "wanting to see that our schools are doing well". However, with a one size fits all approach to education and curriculum, there is incremental revision to things such as science and history, making these subjects universally accepted in their new and re-written forms.
From The Wall Street Journal:
Conservative lawmakers and governors in at least five states, including Utah and Alabama, recently have been pushing to back out, or slow down implementation, of Common Core. They worry that adoption of the standards has created a de facto national curriculum that could at some point be extended into more controversial areas such as science.
A study released this year by a researcher at the Brookings Institution think tank projected Common Core will have no effect on student achievement. The study said states with high standards improved their national math and reading scores at the same rate as states with low standards from 2003 to 2009.
If the new curriculum produces no improved standards, potentially removes individual educator flexibility, and implements new, revised curriculum that is laden with false teaching, then what purpose does it serve?
I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.-John 17:15
It serves indoctrination. In fact, now, just three years later, we are beginning to understand that at the root of CSCOPE and Common Core, is indoctrination and data mining of students. First to indoctrinate, which began long before CORE/CSCOPE, and next to track that indoctrination process with data mining and protection of the federal government to do so, even though it is unconstitutional at best.
TheBlaze has been at the forefront in uncovering the disturbing details of the nationalized curriculum standard known as Common Core. One of the most troubling aspects of this federal program is that government bureaucrats are currently mining sensitive and highly personal information on children through Common Core’s tracking system.
The data will then reportedly be sold by the government to outside sources for profit.
According to the conservative think tank American Principles Project, Common Core’s technological project is “merely one part of a much broader plan by the federal government to track individuals from birth through their participation in the workforce.” As columnist and author Michelle Malkin has pointed out, the 2009 stimulus package included a “State Fiscal Stabilization Fund” to provide states incentives to construct “longitudinal data systems (LDS) to collect data on public-school students.”
In other words, an aggregation system to mind personal data on children including information about their health, family income, religious affiliation and homework.
Even more off-putting is the revelation that a 44-page Department of Eduction Report released in February indicates that the Common Core data-mining system could one day implement monitoring techniques like “Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging” (scanning one’s brain function), as well as “using cameras to judge facial expressions, an electronic seat that judges [a child's] posture, a pressure-sensitive computer mouse and a biometric wrap on kids’ wrists.”
Never before has the withdrawing from a Marxist educational indoctrination system been more necessary than today. There will be no town, small or large, left untouched by the over-extension of these Orwellian tactics, and defunct educational practices. The indoctrination begins very young, and very slight, and manifests in fuel fury in the high schools and colleges in our nation. All schools will need to participate, or lose funding. We all know that unless schools receive tax dollars, even from those who do not utilize the horribly failing system, they will close, and the children will go to another school who obeys the agenda.
Take back your children. Say "NO" to data mining, to youth indoctrination, and false teaching in public and many private schools. Follow God's Commandment to raise and teach your children. Do not look to the problems of the nation through adult-only lenses.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:5-9
Issues such as the understanding of history, the Constitution, the 2nd Amendment, national and world economics, political depravity, etc., are built in the minds of young people who become voting and action-taking adults. We cannot expect a nation to return to it's Founding Principles, if those who would be equipped to take charge of such a revolution are sitting in a classroom being indoctrinated against God, Creation, Freedom, personal responsibility and liberty. We cannot expect anything more but eroding the already least-common societal denominator from a society raised in Marxist institutions of lies, hypocrisy, sin, laziness, and immorality; which are designed only to indoctrinate and harvest information from the most impressionable among us.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. -Ephesians 6:1-4
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. -Psalm 1:1-6
Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching. -Proverbs 1:8
Remember, the children God has entrusted you with, belong to Him, and your responsibility is to see they are raised with Him as their foundation. God will be faithful to equip the Saints to fully raise and educate their own children, apart from Marxist and Godless ideologies in our morally defunct nation.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
