As a seasoned veteran educator and homeschool parent, I have absolutely no regrets when I decided to homeschool my children several years ago. I have two sons and both of whom were homeschooled to the 7nth grade.
In my younger days, I went to college ( like alot of people)and my first major was social science and a minor was in Business. At the end of my third year I decided to change my major to education. It was at this point I believe I had my first encounter with the left on campus. My current GPA was 3.5 and I thought I had it made to switch to an education major. I was told by the Dean at William Paterson, “We have reviewed your transcripts and grades and you are just not what we are looking for.” I asked what they look at, and she said everything. In hindsight and looking back now, I realize she probably read my writings on Marxism in my sociology courses. If this were to happen today, FIRE would have been notified to investigate.
At this time, I was 22 and was already substituting. I subbed in Pequannock and Paterson-with getting called on a daily basis in Paterson. My first long term sub job was in Paterson School 4 as a gym teacher. School 4 is located in the projects. One might ask, “how is a white 22 year old suburban girl going to survive here? Well, I did. Not by applying any principles of collectivity but by treating each student as an individual. I spent many hours with them after school without pay and was like their mother. Each one was treated as an individual.
To get certified, I applied for the “Alternate Route ” and wound up back at William Paterson anyway for the night course that went with it and was a certified teacher within a year with a job in Paterson School 5. I also earned enough credits to complete a Masters. As i recognized through the years, that the priciples of collectivity which was being promoted had downfalls in the class room. One of these principles is “inclusion.” Inclusion is the lefts way of promoting social justice in the classroom for all. Those who are considered “needy” had the right to attend the regular class. However, this divided the teachers attention. Those who were needy couldn’t get enough of the teachers attention and those who were not needy also couldn’t get enough attention to excel. So, the teachers time was spent mostly on applying methods to control the class.
Rather than fixing the issues within the classroom such as removing inclusion, many urban districts were being taken over by the state . The state thought they can do a better job in educating the local urban population than the locals. Objectives for the curriculum were being written by the state. I recall having teacher meetings and discussing what the kids were going to learn without the parents there. Objectives and goals were developed and each teacher had to do his or hers best no matter who they had in their class.
Further, as a teacher, you got to know the curriculums and how they operate. There are lobbyist groups
(Planned Parent, Transformative studies are a few) that lobby both the legislators and curriculum makers themselves as to what to teach? Well Planned Parenthood makes money on abortions. They have to survive. And the Transformative Studies Institute is Communists-and they have to survive also. Groups like this pride themselves on rewriting history.
So, if I enjoyed teaching in public schools, what made me decide to homeschool?
HERE IT IS
I pretty much said “hell no! I am not putting my children in there.” I view children as a budding flower that need to be taught skills so they can think their own way. There are many different kinds of flowers and so the same for children. We are diverse, and unique right from the get go. Therfore the concept of collectivity by design is faulty.
Over the years and as the government established the department of education, they took the control of the curriculum and what is taught out of the hands of the parent and placed it in their hands. As a teacher as mentioned before, we were always having curriculum meetings and deciding what and how to teach the children. I asked myself, “Where were the parents at this meeting?” The parents were not at all involved in the decision making process of what was taught their children.
In the early 90’s , state objectives were written and teachers had to comply. An example would be objective 10.2, teach critical thinking skills to tenth graders. Lay your procedure out and what materials used and how to execute it. So, if a teacher taught a book written by a liberal progressive with one point of view, nobody checked it. Now, in 2013, America is facing a serious problem of a whole generation being brainwashed into accepting this form of “collectiveness.”
As a homeschool mom, for the first time I have the power to choose what is right for my kids. I as a parent know them best and how they learn. There are a wide variety of options as far as curriculum to choose from. And, a typical day of homeschool would not necessarily mean that the kids are at home. It is by far that.
A typical day might be where we would co-op ith other parents and one would teach science, the other art, a third English and so on. We might be on a field trip one day or at the local supermarket teaching responsible shopping or taking a home ec class there. Our kids might be simulcasting on the internet with a group of kids from China!!! Not to mention you can include God in your curriculum! Oh yes, that GOD word!
The average cost per year to homeschool is about $500.00 to $1000.00. The average cost to educate a public school child is about $8000.00 (only get get a full days dose of collectiveness). The homeschoolers have outpaced their public school peers by being at least a year ahead.
Due to the net, the resources for homeschoolers have increased over the years and so has their numbers. There is homeschool bowling, art, home ec, shop (Home Depot) an many field trips and groups to get involved with. If you can home school and give up a little-do it! If I had the chance to do it again-absolutey! Did it pay off? Absolutley! We are proud of our kids and what they got on their SAT scores and where they are now. Listen to radio broadcast here:

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever”—Rev. Kathleen E
“Oh God, exhaulted and full of compassion, grant perfect peace in your sheltering presence among the holy and the pure to the souls of all our loved ones that perished on that horrible day. They have gone to their eternal home. Master of mercy, we beseech you, remember all of their worthy and righteous deeds that they performed in the land of living and may their souls be bound up in the bond of lifet enteral. There is no death, just transformation. May they rest in peace.” —Rabbi Shaul Praver of Congregation Adath Israel after singing Psalm 46
I Haaretz reports that the Israeli cabinet is considering calling up as many as 75,000 reservists, which is a massive mobilization many times larger than the call-up for Cast Lead. Even if you discount this report as psy-ops on the part of Israel against Hamas, it appears that Netanyahu wants a massive display of force. Though it could mean he intends to re-occupy Gaza, I strongly doubt that’s his intent. It would bring massive international opprobrium, which isn’t what he wants in the run-up to elections.
My sense (wholly personal and not based on specific knowledge) is that Bibi and Barak plan for this to be a two to three-week military exercise. I can’t believe they’d want it to fester longer than that because that would put in major dent in the feel-good atmosphere he’d like to engender in the late-January election period. That still gives plenty of time for the IDF to collect its scalps, which can be prominently displayed before the Israeli public, thus giving Bibi his own personal war on which he can proudly campaign.
The death toll has risen to 35 in Gaza. There were no Israeli deaths today.
I was gratified to see Egypt’s prime minister visiting Gaza today. It was a gutsy move by Pres. Morsi. I think Israel can expect more of this if/when it invades. Tunisia’s foreign minister is due later today there. I would love to see Turkey’s foreign minister visiting Gaza as well. Erdogan promised to visit. There couldn’t be a better time. In fact, if a different foreign minister scheduled a visit every day, it might make it considerably harder for the IDF to massacre Gazan civilians. Another visit from the emir of Qatar would be great right around now. How about one of those chubby Saudi crown princes? Get out of the Lamborghinis and put yourself on the line for your fellow Muslims for a change.
Many have taken to calling this Cast Lead II, but I think that’s wrong. A lot has changed since 2009: the Arab Spring. Egypt is governed by the Muslim Brotherhood. That is why the visit earlier today of the Egyptian prime minister to Gaza, even though symbolic, was a major piece of theater.
Turkey has become hostile to Israel since the Mavi Marmara massacre. Ironically, Turkey was in the process of mediating a possible peace agreement between Syria and Israel when Olmert chose, instead, to begin one of his two wars. Erdogan’s goverment has offered once again to mediate the current conflict. This has to be in part intended to needle Netanyahu, who the Turkish leader knows wants nothing of a ceasefire nor of anything to do with Turkey.

With a new school year upon us, and it being an election year, it has become more important and pertinent than ever to keep students aware of their options when it comes to politics. An often underplayed and ignored group of political thinkers at the college level are those who define themselves as conservatives, and more specifically those that align with the Tea Party Movement.
However, all of that is changing thanks to the Tea Party Students website, which offers its members a safe, reliable online network where they can swap thoughts, ideas and more pertaining to their political beliefs. With singular and group representation at colleges across the country ranging from schools such as Harvard and Brandeis to California State University in Sacramento, the website’s mission is steadily spreading as more and more young people learn of its existence.
While a lot of their initiatives and programs are geared toward college students, Tea Party Students (TPS) is also a great avenue for high schoolers and teens. The organization and its members seek to promote the 3 core values of the Tea Party Movement, which are: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets. Additionally, TPS must align their operations and procedures with that of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition and, although they are proponents of free speech, the group reserves the right to reject anyone promoting racial discrimination or hate speech.
The group’s primary partner is the Tea Party Patriots group, which has undoubtedly helped TPS steer and coordinate their many program areas. Among these program areas is the Tea Party Conference for students held in D.C., the syndicated, regularly updated TPS blog and the Tea Party 101 course, along with many others.
The site itself boasts a “Wall of Honor” where supporters, sponsors and volunteers are thanked for their efforts and dedication. One glance at that and it’s not hard to tell that their backing and influence is continuously growing.
Guided by a knowledgeable coalition of professors, TPS members learn the ins and outs of their party of choice and gain a real-world understanding of how it all plays into policy-making and the political landscape as a whole. If the group achieves nothing else other than the spread of ideals, awareness and knowledge, its creators will be happy—and so far, that, along with so much more, is just what they’re doing.
So if you’re a Tea Party Supporter in High School and College and long for a supportive community and network where you can voice your opinions and learn, the TPS website might be just the thing you need.
