How the Right To an Education Destroys Our Children’s Education

One of the most common arguments that radical-left politicians like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren use to justify public schools is that all children have an alleged “right” to an education. Radical-left public-school apologists claim that all children have a right to an education and that only the existence of a massive, compulsory, government-controlled public-school system can “guarantee” that right. ...

Homeschooling Can Take a Lot Less Time Than You Think

Bernie Sanders and the radical-left all support public schools and oppose vouchers, charter schools, and homeschooling. But often, homeschooling is a parent’s only option to escape the local public school that is failing to educate her kids. That is why almost 1.8 million children are homeschooled today. That may sound like a lot of kids, but consider that almost 50 ...

Homeschooling – Is It Worth It?

Many parents who are disgusted with their local public schools have thought about homeschooling. They see their children’s time being wasted, and their children barely able to read. Then there’s the drugs, bullying, sex-education classes, eco-propaganda classes, gun-free zones that invite mass murderers with guns, and all the other problems that come with public schools. But many parents hesitate to ...

Finding The Rotten Apples

If government-run public schools are so bad, why do we still have them? One reason is that the educrats and radical-left apologists for public schools, like Bernie Sanders, claim that we can’t trust the free-market to educate our children. Sanders, a radical socialist, would claim that private schools only care about “greedy” profits, and would cheat parents and students, take ...

Public Schools: Communism in America?

Bernie Sanders has been a radical-left socialist his whole life. He has been pushing his radical-left socialist agenda for over 30 years, both in Vermont and in the U.S. Senate. He has proposed progressive-income-tax rates of 90% on productive “super-rich” businessmen like Bill Gates of Microsoft and Jeff Bezos of Amazon. These are brilliant entrepreneurs who create tens of thousands ...

Can Public Schools Make Your Child Illiterate?

Bernie Sanders, our friendly, radical-left candidate for President, wants a “Thurgood Marshall  Plan For Public Education” (https://berniesanders.com/en/issues/reinvest-in-public-education/ ). What are some of the elements of this plan? End the unaccountable profit-motive of charter schools (end school choice for parents) Provide ‘equitable funding’ for public schools (higher real-estate taxes for parents) Give teachers a much-deserved raise, expand their collective bargaining rights ...

Why Government-Run Public Schools Can’t Be Fixed

Every one of the radical-left Democrats running for President – especially Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren – supports government-run public schools. But these public schools have been a disaster for our kids for the last 60 years. Why? “Just give us more money,” the educrats whine. “Look at the condition of our schools. See how overcrowded they are. How do ...

Teacher Licensing – Is It Bad For Your Children?

One of the things that scare me the most about the Presidential election is that almost half the country (Democrats) have been brainwashed into falling for the radical-left socialist or communist propaganda of Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. Yet, this is to be expected, considering the fact that so many voters today went to government-run public schools and to colleges ...

The Fatal Mistake Of Minority (and White) Parents

In a recent online article in the Christian Science Monitor, “Racially Diverse ‘New Majority’ Set To Reshape U.S. Public Schools,” we see once again the fatal mistake made by minority parents. The article points out that for the first time in U.S. history, non-white children will be the majority in our public schools. The frustrated parents of these children want ...
