A piece in Harvard Magazine listed out a bunch of values that students miss out on when they are homeschooled by their parents. The purpose of the article was to convince the federal government to pass major reforms essentially outlawing homeschooling for most families. The author wrote “It’s . . . important that children grow up exposed to community values, social values, democratic values, ideas about nondiscrimination and tolerance of other people’s viewpoints.” This list of missing values sure sounds convincing, but that’s only at first glance.
Let’s break down what the author is really talking about behind all that academic doublespeak. When she talks about “community values,” she’s talking about the global community, as defined by the globalists at the United Nations. When she writes about “social values,” she’s talking about the so-called comprehensive sex education misleading kids by saying safe sex with lots of partners is the best way to live. When she writes about “democratic values,” she really means is the warped view of our nation espoused by the Democratic Party. When she says “ideas about nondiscrimination,” what she really means is ignoring the terrible consequences of same-sex relationships. When she talks about “tolerance of other people’s viewpoints,” what she really means is tolerance only for the views held by the leftists in academia.
The elites at Harvard Magazine and the National Education Association may be terrible at teaching our children, but they sure can run a great marketing campaign. The language they use is flowery, but there is a sinister motive behind it. Like so many other government-controlled industries, their entire goal in life is to consolidate their own power by taking away ours. Their lofty platitudes can’t disguise the fact that they’re coming for our children and our right to make decisions for our children. The only way they win is if we don’t speak out and fight for our rights. So don’t be intimidated by their well-rehearsed talking points. We have the right to make educational choices for our child.
