It's official: The purpose of teaching is political
If you ever wondered if our children’s educational system was politically biased, then look no further than the NEA. It is unashamedly leftist, aggressively for abortion, decidedly pro-LGBT and unapologetically hostile to those who dare challenge the status quo.

Still, we are sometimes blissfully (and even willfully) ignorant of just how politicized our children’s schools can be. But this email, sent to me by a school teacher, the wife of a Facebook friend, will help shock us back to reality. (We’ll call her Sarah.)

Sarah copied a tweet from another teacher, then wrote:

Hello Dr. Brown. This is what has happened to my profession. Please note the rainbow flag and how many likes this received. I can tell you that this not isolated. I’m a K-6 teacher who has taught public school in Florida, Nevada, and California. It is pervasive. I now teach through a public virtual charter school which ...

James Dobson would agree with that statement, Jim. But Ken Ham has some data that shows that teachers are detrimental to the ong term faith of children. Both are correct, but as is being shown in the current PRC efforts to have children inform on their Christian parents, it sure seems like Ken Ham has a major point.

There is no doubt that teachers have less of an impact than parents on their childrenâť—
Dr. Gail Gross wrote:
....
More to the point, what I have learned as a human behavior expert and child development specialist is that our interactions with our parents form the crucible for our growth. Through these interactions, we learn what is good and bad, right and wrong, who we are and who we are to be....

Now, as a parent yourself, the baton has passed to you. And who your baby will be and how he will grow subsequently is up to you. After all, in these critical first few years of life, your baby isn’t just building language and communication skills – he’s building his very personality. This means that your choices­ – what you say (and don’t say), what you do (and don’t do) – strongly influence who your child becomes. You are a key co-author in the book of his life....

Is education the solution?
Listen to the podcast (web address posted above)to hear how a very well educated (Ph.D in physics, much experience on Wall Street) man is looking to religious communities, especially those where the local church provides the base, as a better solution for society's woes.

Thanks for the info Just a Guy;
"Follow God's design" -- If only society would. But I guess it is like everything in this fallen world 99 per cent don't even know the Lord.
Satan is working on every aspect of human society to destroy Christianity - even the establishment churches.
So education of the future generation is part of the task and part of the battle. But God's on our side.

It has become a modern struggle for Christians, yet it has been a necessary task for centuries. The curious point about modern times is that education has become such an essential preparation for life on Earth. So to become part of community life we must join in the process to take the Christian message to the masses.

Satan is fighting back of course by disrupting as much of community life as possible. By turning the reprobate heart and mind against us it becomes essential for the Christians to contend for the faith in the world and in our children. God be with us.

The latest podcast of EconTalk, a secular program, interviewed Chris Arnade, author of a book, "Dignity" where he mentions the wisdom of Christian communities, esp. the 'Bruderhof' who have a factory making furniture. They reduced the machinery so that they would have work for their elderly members to do. The author, a non-believer, was intrigued by the role of churches in poor communities that his next project will be to live in small towns where the churches play a large role.
Isn't that interesting, that a person trained in science, who used to work in stock trading on Wall Street, would find something of value in church communities?
I think it is a testimony to what I have been mentioning here about I Timothy 5 that is the 'tip of an iceberg' of a social system--where families take care of widows, younger widows get married, and churches take care of widows that have meet certain standards.
Do we see that taught today? Do any 'family ministries' exist that promote this type of church life?
Instead we have folk who use the Bible to promote 'success' in the world, as a means to get people to sit in their churches or give money to their ministries.
Can you imagine a 'Focus on the Family' program in Paul's day?

Timothy, I think you will like this article from the USA Today about the NEA:
Jessica Anderson and Lindsey Burke wrote:
....
NEA ignores conservative members

Since 1990, the NEA and the American Federation of Teachers have made over $140 million in direct political contributions. Over 97% of that went to liberals. That kind of political bias isn’t at all representative of the unions’ membership. According to the NEA’s own polling, there are nearly as many conservative teachers in the union as liberals. But the union’s bosses have decided conservatives’ views aren’t worth representing.

The unions abandoned teachers long ago. It’s a small wonder more and more teachers are abandoning them....

excerpt from,"Teachers union has become an arm of the abortion-rights left. Conservatives should quit."

https://tinyurl.com/yylzdgtn

This was only done a couple of days ago, so there still might be some conservative teachers left in the NEA.

The SA article title should have been the teachers union supports liberal policies not necessarily the teachers âť—

That's a huge problem, DF, that you've identified. "Religion" has been placed on the shelf as a relief aid to the distressed. Psychology therefore appears in many sermons. We've seen it ourselves in our unfortunate visit to a megachurch while traveling.

Yes, there is a Balm in Gilead. But there is more than just salve for hurting souls. 2 Timothy 3:16 applies.

I like the Apostle Paul's approach patterned in many of his epistles. Establish the foundation of salvation in Christ alone then describe what that looks like as it comes out in the believers' lives. Or like how Voddie Baucham puts it, "Jesus changes everything!"

Thanks, 'QC' for those words. I bring up 1 Timothy 5 and its dealing with widows because it is simple to figure out, but totally neglected by so many Christians.
There are many other Bible verses where rules and guidelines are given. But they are not clearly preached, maybe because they are so 'counter-cultural' today. Wait..isn't the idea of a man rising from the dead also 'counter-cultural'?

Or, maybe they aren't preached because they would hurt the feelings of so many people who are not following these guidelines. OK, but you might as well not preach what the Bible says about adultery, stealing, coveting, etc.
Instead, what I hear is a lot of 'psycho-babble' that uses Bible stories as motivational stories.
And I don't think 'success' as measured by the world has anything to do with it. We seek only to please God, not men, not following the world.

DF, you bring up a very valid point with 1 Timothy & "qualified" widows for church support. Up until LBJ's ill fated war on poverty, churches led the way in support to the poor. Since then, we came to believe the problem is just too big for the church (and by proxy, God) to handle. Horsefeathers! as Dr. Tim would say. Education falls into the same kind of rubric. Teachers in public school require a BA or BS and either a master's level teaching cerification or an MA/MS in education to teach. Meanwhile, for those of us at home, state law governs this, but we do not require anywhere near this. As such, those who feel that child raising and education should be left to the professionals get up im arms when those of us without their credentials run circles around them. They'll be trying to guilt us next for creating an inequality.

So by following the word of God and through the Lord bringing the increase, we do well.

Adriel says...
It seems that parent ability, spare time and funding are difficult hurdles to overcome in homeschooling."

Those are the three big things that discourages people from homeschooling here too...

Parent ability: Parents are so afraid because they think they have to to take the place of the dozens of teachers teaching all the different subjects a kid learns. When really, all their job is, is to be a administrator. Your textbooks are what are teaching your kids. Your job is to check work (with a answer key) and make sure they don't fall behind. Not be a teacher, otherwise you wouldn't need a textbook...

Spare time: This boils down to a different problem which is two income families. Mother's have not been given the job to provide, their job is to train/educate the children. So to solve this issue, mom's need follow God's design for families, and be willing to stay home and educate the next generation for God's glory. She'll have plenty of time if she so not under the authority of another man working...

Funding: This could be solved with a calculator, adding up the cost associated with bringing your kid to "free school" and comparing it to the books you will need to homeschool. Most of the time they are nearly the same or significantly less on the homeschool

Adriel asked...
Clearly you are saying that Government has an influence controlled in some respect by funding?"

In the US we have 100% funded, controlled, and administered Government schools. Most of US kids go to these schools since they are tuition free...

Then we have a group of schools that are semi funded or not funded at all by the government. They are private schools, Christian schools, or Charter schools. To get in you have to pay for it and they are generally more unique in their choice of curriculum for the kids. But they are still monitored by the state and federal governments in one way of the other...

And then you have homeschools. We are not funded by anyone, and each house, really has there own curriculum unique to each child in the family, and what they need for their maximum learning potential. Of course each state has different requirements for homeschooler's. Some states say you need a yearly, written form describing what you are teaching. Some states require yearly test to see if the kids are at level with public schoolers. And then some (like Mississippi) only need the name and age of your child each year...

I really don't like the phrase "homeschooling" though. The only reason we say that, is because we need to distinguish ourselves from the public school system, so it becomes a home school...
I am from Britain and I was under the impression that schools in America were all in some form of 'private' education.
Clearly you are saying that Government has an influence controlled in some respect by funding?

Are your schools controlled by government in this (necessary)? Funding?

Is homeschooling the only alternative to education?

Or do you have any form of parent controlled educatin? Such as private administration?

Homeschooling has begun to take off in Britain but it is early days yet.
It seems that parent ability, spare time and funding are difficult hurdles to overcome in homeschooling.

I applaud the points about homeschooling by previous posters. I Timothy 5 gives clear guidelines about widows that apply to this situation, because it talks about them being busy with raising children, supporting families, and being supported by them. I don't see any govt. aid or school programs there, do you? Yet when I listen to a Christian radio station with a program about families, they sound more like psychological self-help programs you could get from your local hospital.
Many Bible verses tell us how to live, so we need to hear sermons and ministries bring out these points more often. If the world disagrees with them, or it is unpopular to preach such a thing, well, that's the Bible's teaching, just like it says, foolishness to the Greeks.
Every time I hear a preacher bring up a story from the world (yes, even the father who died rescuing his daughters in a riptide on the Florida shore), I wonder, he is using valuable time that could be filled with Bible-based examples. People do not read the Bible, so telling these stories is very important. Even if they have read it, repeating them is not a waste. Just don't come at me with some other book, some ancient author, or story from the world! Preach the Word! Just the Word!

I really don't like the phrase "homeschooling" though. The only reason we say that, is because we need to distinguish ourselves from the public school system, so it becomes a home school...

For most of history parents were the ones who had the sole right to educate their children. One of the biggest benefits of this was that no single wicked idea could easily change the next generation. To get people on your side, you had to convince every single person to your idea, and make them throw away a life of being taught by their parents. But now, with the inventon of schools, you have a concentrated society that can be manipulated at those crucial years of intellectual growth...

The only way this nation can change is by changing the minds of the next generation. And to do that you don't "retake" the schools through "child evangelist", you get rid of them entirely. You give the job of education back to the parents, the ones who love their children more than anyone. The only way a generation will change ins Godly parents stepping up a taking back thei

Wayfarer Pilgrim says...
The balance is parents raising children must take godly children. I have known homeschooled kids who go onto becoming wonderful responsible adults."

Very true. Many people think that if they raise children right, they will become right. When really, you could raise a child in the most biblical manner you can put forth and he can become the most wicked apostate you can imagine...

Knowing that God is in control of all things and has chosen each and every one of His children (Calvinism) is crucial to raising a family in a Godly and right-minded way...

Understanding that homeschooling, protection from the world, and a Godly church don't save your child is really comforting, and takes the impossible bruden of salvation off your mind, and into God's hands, where they have been all along...

Jim: While I agree that the Quiverfull movement is based on an erroneous understanding of Psalm 127 that boils down to God will bless us more if we have more kids...He's already blessed us hugely with Himself, you are taking things way too far to try to connect them to your pornographic "Handmaidens Tale" or any other such nonsense.

Dr, Tim, there are Christians who teach in public school. Why? I don't know, but I'm not called to teach there. Many people in such jobs get forced into joining the union as a requisite of accepting employment. They have no real control over who is elected or who controls the union at the national level. As such, though, some school districts are more Christian than others, which we see within the homeschool community due to the oversight requirements. But that is at the local level. Get higher up the tree and the fruit thereof gets harder to swallow.

Horsefeathers, Jim. You can’t be “personally conservative” and belong to perhaps the most liberal organization (the NEA) in America. Nor can you be “personally Christian” and belong to perhaps the most anti-Christian organization in America, viz., the Democratic Party.
