…more on Home Schooling

February14

People around town see me with my oldest daughter, Haley Anne, quite a bit – even during what they know to be school hours. So, when they ask me why she is not in school, I tell them that she actually is… She is simply on a break from Home School studies, and we are taking the opportunity to hang-out with one another.

They are mostly amazed – and uncertain – around the concept of Home School. I get the question: “What is wrong with public school”, or, “Is it a Christian thing” a lot.

It is not a “Christian” thing, but it is definitely a concern over public schools in general.

I won’t go into my concerns about the kids exposing each other to mature themes in this post. But, I will state my ‘big three’ concerns over Public School, and the core reasons why we keep Haley Anne at home where we can have a better influence.

1. In Public School she is not allowed to pledge alleficance to her own nations flag – even though her parents pay A LOT of taxes, and are very proud to be American Citizens (well… Dad is an American Citizen, and Mom is proud to be British and relieved to reside in the United States);
2. In public School she is not allowed to pray or acknowledge her belief in a very powerful God under whose principals our nations Constitution was formed (and, this right has been, ironically, taken from her by people that want to foist their own agenda on all of us);
3. In Public School she is taught to be tested, and not taught to learn.

My money is on Haley Anne’s moral barometer, and sense of values.

So, I vote with my kid.

peace to my brothers and sisters

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
