We must stop indoctrinating boys in feminist ideology

On Wednesday, the Daily Mail reported that a school in Oxford has become the first to introduce “Good Lad” workshops, in which boys are singled out for sessions that teach them about “the scale of sexual harassment and violence aimed at female students” and how they must stand up for women’s rights. The workshops are the latest in a mushrooming series of initiatives in which … Continue reading We must stop indoctrinating boys in feminist ideology

From the Archives: A Review of Chucking College by Melanie Ellison

chuckingcollege By Jennie Chancey

Melanie Ellison has just published a little gem of a book that will challenge old notions of “higher” education and point readers to a better (and far less expensive) path. Melanie has done homeschool grads (and, truly, all high school students) a great favor by pulling together research, analysis of modern educational trends, and personal stories from the battlefront of “higher” education. If you’re standing at the fork in the road wondering which way to go, grab a copy of Chucking College today. Or if you’re a parent who isn’t sure what alternatives are out there to the (expensive) brick-and-mortar option, please read this book. Below is a short excerpt from this excellent book:

What will it profit a girl if she gains the whole world but loses her soul, her lifetime financial freedom, her purity, her love of reading, her unique individuality, her entrepreneurial momentum, and four peak years of her life? A college degree may no longer be worth the world to us when we see what we have to surrender for it. The costs for that piece of paper—financial, emotional, spiritual, and temporal—rise higher with every graduation. When we really think it over, a degree may not be necessary to equip us for each of our life purposes. Many college graduates discover (after the fact) that a degree was not a prerequisite for their success. Continue reading “From the Archives: A Review of Chucking College by Melanie Ellison”

American Vision: Public school puff-piece blows up in conservative ministry’s face

OneNewsNow.com, a news arm of the American Family Association, published a post-Obergefell article puffing the need to send Christian children into public schools. They got Baptist megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress to blurb it for them. Big venue, big topic, big issue, big name, high stakes—and it comes complete with a reader poll: “What educational environment is best for the children of Christians?” The piece lures readers … Continue reading American Vision: Public school puff-piece blows up in conservative ministry’s face

Baucham: Top Five Reasons Not To Send Your Kids Back To Public School

Anyone who has kept up with my blog knows that I am no fan of government education. I have made it a point to carry The Continuing Collapse on a regular basis, and I try to make biblical, philosophical and theological arguments in favor of Christian education as often as possible. However, I recognize the obstacles those of us on my side of the street … Continue reading Baucham: Top Five Reasons Not To Send Your Kids Back To Public School

A generation of people raised on sexual depravity, that is the vision our governments have for your children’s future. It’s up to us to spread the word about Jesus Christ. It’s up to us to spread the word about homeschooling.

Vernick: Five Indicators of A Evil Heart

As Christian counselors, pastors and people helpers we often have a hard time discerning between an evil heart and an ordinary sinner who messes up, who isn’t perfect, and full of weakness and sin. I think one of the reasons we don’t “see” evil is because we find it so difficult to believe that evil individuals actually exist. We can’t imagine someone deceiving us with … Continue reading Vernick: Five Indicators of A Evil Heart

Unfortunately, in this … Continue reading Scriptural Foundations and True Education
