As Government School System Crumbles, More Are Turning to Home School Options

The government schools in America certainly have a lot to offer -- the steady dumbing down of students while inflating their grades and egos, heavy amounts of negative peer pressure and bullying, the denial of the student's rights of religion and speech, continual indoctrination in progressive political correctness, unisex bathroom opportunities, free condom distributions, and field trips to the statehouse to protest the wicked policies of Republican governors.

Is it any surprise then to find out that more Americans are choosing to go the home school route? Indeed, Dr. Susan Berry suggests that the number of homeschool kids has increased by 75% in the last 15 years and "the number of children whose parents choose to educate them at home rather than a traditional academic setting is growing seven times faster than the number of children enrolling in grades K-12 every year."

Read the rest of Dr. Susan Berry's very interesting report at Breitbart right here.

Of course, remember too that the government wants very badly to have a monopoly over kids' education. So I fully expect this move towards home schooling to be aggressively opposed by progressives...a lot more so than in the last three decades. That will come through increases in social pressure and regulatory harassment as well as new acts of aggression against homeschooling parents through law.

The meaning of that fact for homeschool kids and parents? Keep the number of the ACLJ on speed dial.
