The God-Ordained Family Government

I had the privilege this week of graduating a class of homeschooling students that I taught in our summer school at IOTC. I taught them the Biblical view of Law and Government and our founder’s understanding of the founding documents. What an encouragement it was to see young students from 5th grade and up, eager to learn these essential principles of liberty. I believe one of the few bright spots on the horizon in our land today is the homeschool and Christian school movement. There are Read more […]

School Claims Right to Question Homeschooled Students

The school board wants to question homeschooled students about their religious beliefs. In the United States parents have received a letter demanding that their fourteen-year-old submit their own written statement to the directors of a government entity to explain their religious beliefs. They were also warned that, if the bureaucrats were not satisfied, they could call them to appear to give a personal account and be questioned. This really happened in Virginia, though I don’t understand Read more […]

Homeschoolers Don’t Work As Hard

Government bureaucrat says homeschoolers “don’t work as hard as kids in regular school.” According to the Homeschool Legal Defense Association, a woman in Virginia lost her child support payments because her child’s homeschooling was not recognized by the state. Patricia was complying with the law; she was qualified to homeschool and had notified the local school district of her intent to educate her teen daughter at home.  As a single parent she was entitled by law to child support Read more […]

Adam Lanza Is the Fault of Homeschoolers

Beware the homeschoolers! Worse than robbing us blind, homeschoolers will kill us all! From World Net Daily: Adam Lanza, 20, has been described as being “dark and disturbed” before his death. He coldly murdered his own mother in their expensive home near Newtown, Connecticut. Then he took her legally registered guns to the nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School and shot and killed 20 children and six adults. Then he took a handgun and shot himself. Reports say he suffered from Asperger’s Read more […]

Company Refuses to Hire Homeschoolers Because They Don’t Have a Legal High School Diploma

What I find maddening about this is not the fact that the company refused to hire a homeschooler. Even though the fact that they actually made a job offer and then rescinded that offer is extremely annoying, it is still not the most insane part of this story. What strikes me as especially insane is that this company is acting as if homeschooling is not legal in Ohio. From the Home School Legal Defense Association: NiSource, Inc., an Indiana-based energy distribution group with operations in Ohio, Read more […]

Ignore Early Childhood Education And Become A Gold-Medal Olympian

Some of the most damaging propaganda we hear is the incessant campaign claiming that, if children miss out on early education, they will be doomed losers for life. Our political class keeps pushing that message to get our children boxed in the institution of public school at a younger age. I’ve written about it here, here, and especially here (and probably other places). I was reminded of this issue when I saw the headline on the Today Show website: “Gold medalist Jamie Anderson’s mom: I didn’t Read more […]

Germany Guilty of Terrorism?

Last week, I shared with you the terrifying experience of Wunderlich family in Darmstadt, Germany.  Early in the morning just as their four kids were starting their school lessons, twenty police and government agents armed with assault weapons and battering ram appeared at the family’s home with a court order to take the kids by force if necessary.  Social workers that accompanied the police took custody of the Wunderlich children and informed the parents that there was no telling when they might Read more […]

Obama, Friend of the Immigrant, Won’t Help German Homeschooling Family

In case you are unaware Uwe, Hennelore Romeike and their children, a German homseschooling family that fled their home country. In Germany home schooling is apparently illegal. To avoid further prosecution they fled to the United States and requested asylum. There is however another German homeschooling family that has not been so fortunate and that is an understatement. The Wunderlich family of Darmstadt Germany has made headlines also, at least in Europe. The Wunderlich’s have been trying Read more […]

It’s Time to Push for Impeachment Proceedings Against Eric Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder has again shown his true colors – his disdain for America and her laws. Recently, he took action against the Romeike family that is seeking asylum in the United States after being forced to flee their home country or risk losing their five children to the German government. Germany was attempting to force the Romeikes to put their children in a government school against their religious beliefs in a terrifying repeat of history. Holder said that asylum should not Read more […]

Starve the Beast — Homeschool Your Children

Starve a fire of fuel and oxygen, and the fire will go out. Starve cancer cells of what they need to grow, and you will eliminate the cancer. The State feeds on people. It needs people to function, to survive. The money that the State spends comes from people. Judges, teachers, reporters, and journalists have mostly been educated by the State. Why are we surprised when they support the State? Americans have a love affair with public education, mainly because they are not paying full price. Read more […]

Sweden Uses Nazi and Communist Tactics against Homeschooling Families

On December 10, 2012 a Swedish appeals court terminated the parental rights of a Swedish family. The parents want to homeschool their son. Homeschooling is a crime in Sweden and Germany. As a result of this Nazi-style law, their son was taken from them and the State was granted full custody rights. Bob Unruh of WND writes: “The appeals panel reversed a lower court ruling that granted Annie and Christer Johansson custody of their son, Dominic. But if the decision is not reversed again by the Read more […]

The True Radicals in America

A recent article written by Kevin D. Williamson for National Review makes a very bold assertion. In his first sentence, Williamson states that there is only one “authentically radical social movement of any real significance in the United States,” and that this radical movement is homeschooling. Williamson well understands the cultural and social significance of homeschooling, and that it runs much deeper than simply being about education. He writes: “Homeschoolers pose an intellectual, moral, Read more […]
