One Reason Why Our Children Don’t Think There Are Moral Facts

[Editor’s Note: There are a few things to consider when reading this article. One, we’re all born humanists. Unreasoning. Selfish. One-sided in our thinking. Easily mislead. Often biased. Second, we’ve established that academia isn’t healthy for children and so we home school. Third, the author fails to point out the source of truth by which all thought, opinion, beliefs are measured. That would be scripture. … Continue reading One Reason Why Our Children Don’t Think There Are Moral Facts

The Tebow Bill (HB 347, SB391, SB2046): Why Oppose It

Editor’s Note: Follow No2Tebow Bill on Facebook here

Texas is an exceptional state in regards to homeschooling. We are not one of the most free to homeschool in, we are the most free to homeschool in. Because of this, comparing the other states that have passed “Tebow” bills to Texas and the lack of new regulations those bills have so far produced is simply an illegitimate argument. Home schooling is practiced in all 50 states and parents have the right to choose to homeschool under those individual state laws. Texas is the only state where home educating parents are completely free of regulation in any form, be it district approval, curriculum approval, registering with districts, or mandated testing, etc… Therefore, if even one regulation that is equal to what the other states already have in place; Texas has then raised its regulations on homeschooling 100%.  THSC president has made the statement that “nothing in the current bill” brings regulations to those who choose to participate, but the key word there is current and there is no guarantee that once it leave committee it will resemble how it is “currently”(THSC, 2015).

New Study: Early Academics Not Good For Kids

URBANA – A University of Illinois professor is stirring havoc among early childhood education advocates with a new study that debunks the popular belief that earlier formal education is better. Furthermore, the report maintains that a narrow academic curriculum does not recognize the innate inquisitiveness of young children and ultimately fails to address the way they learn. The report, “Lively Minds: Distinctions between academic versus … Continue reading New Study: Early Academics Not Good For Kids

I Learned A Lot in Public School

By Kelly Crawford at Generation Cedar I actually learned a lot in my conservative, small-town public school where virtually every well-intentioned teacher, as far as I knew, as well as the principal, was a self-proclaimed Christian. We still had devotions over the intercom and Teens for Christ meetings in the morning. I graduated a smiling Homecoming Queen, a cheerleader, with an Advanced diploma, a college … Continue reading I Learned A Lot in Public School

A Vision For Homeschooling

I remember the day we decided pull our daughter out of school. The day we “made it public”—this decision to homeschool. I.Was.Terrified. Really. My knees were knocking as I walk[ed] into our oldest daughter’s grade school. I liked her teacher. I had no complaints, really, except that we knew in our hearts there was something missing. We longed for more. More shared experiences. More tailored … Continue reading A Vision For Homeschooling

[Obama is] painting a picture of how he’d like to expand the administrative state to include government pre-school. Because public schools are doing such a good job generally. Anyway, he then took an absolutely bizarre swipe against stay-at-home mothers: “Sometimes, someone, usually Mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her … Continue reading

Preparing Sons For The Future

By R.C. Sproul Jr. of Highland Ministries Don’t follow the folly of the world. An excellent question. Too often we in the church follow the folly of the world in taking a passive approach to the future. We tend to believe all we have to do is show up, and if things don’t work out well for us, it must be the system’s fault. Another … Continue reading Preparing Sons For The Future
