I agree 100% our publication system being run by the Federal government is a farce. We raised and educated six kids and then found after graduating from high school that 4 of them could not read or spell their multiplication was atrocious all six of them had no idea about American history and if they did it was a biased view. my wife and I spent several hundreds of dollars taking them to private tutors so they could at least make it in the outside world. I might mention one of the six went on to get her PhD and to this day still can't reconcile
Unfortunately you are right we now have 12 grand children and 7 great grand children and not a one of them who attend public school can have an intellectual discusion about the history of our country. Oh but can they tell you why we of the older generation should start having a different outlook on people like Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro,
what scares my wife and I is they can spit names of dictators out but ask them who is VP of the usa or who the secretary of defense is and they go blank I can't totally blame the kids, but I certainly can blame the educatin system. in my personal opinion all public employees should not be allowed to unionize and no tenure in our school system.
Too anyone that would like to see where the political parties are taking education please purchase this enlightning video this man has truely walked the walk.
Indoctrination: To instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., esp. to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.
IndoctriNation is a 90-minute documentary film that takes the audience on a panoramic exploration of one of the most important and controversial issues in the history of mankind, the issue of education.
Traveling all over America with his family in a big yellow school bus and conducting a series of candid conversational interviews, Colin Gunn, a Scottish filmmaker, actor, and homeschool father of seven children living in Texas, is on a quest to discover the origins of our modern educational system.
What he discovers is a masterful design that sought to replace God's recipe for training up the next generation with a humanistic, man-centered program that fragmented the family and undermined the influence of the Church and its Great Commission.
Part documentary, part testimonial — a confessional and a rebuke, this film is above all a challenge and an encouragement to millions of Christians who need to know what history, experience, and the Scriptures have to say about what is perhaps the pivotal issue of our time: the discipleship and training of the next generation.
Specifications: DVD; 90 minutes
