What my son's school is teaching this week. Unbelievable...


At Jeffers Elementary:
to value yourself, others,
and the world around you.

Parents: Our life skill for October is RESPECT.

We will be learning about friendship and
RESPECTFUL ways to treat others in
health/personal wellness lessons this month. In the
classrooms, students are talking about different
ways that they show respect:

Honoring another’s opinion, belief, or needs.
Being considerate and polite.
Taking care of the environment.
Taking care of personal or public


Obeying people in positions of authority.

I am so sick of this. My son is in Kindergarten and this is what I have to deal with. Before he began his first year, I resigned myself to the station of dealing with this kind of thing. My advice is to stay on top of your children's education.

They would hate having my daughter. All she's ever heard from us is, "Question everything. Do it politely, if you can, but never just obey an order." Of course, we started homeschooling last year so we don't have those problems anymore.


Have you ever ever before pondered just what it had been like to

publish regarding title badges? It's really rather enjoyable. This

really is me personally, Cedric , and I've actually made a good

dwelling composing with regards to nothing nonetheless name badges.

Now that's a task that you may perhaps not need expected to hear

nowadays. However it's true.

That's how it starts

Obey authority. Somewhere along the line the child, who has been conditioned to think this is the way it is, period, then decides that to make it you must become the authority....not to change things, but to benefit from the system. Child then goes on to college as a political science major, or law school and....voila! a statist career politician is born.

isnt the whole point of

isnt the whole point of education to teach children how to formally and thoughtfully change and disobey the regime?
Oh i forgot, this is only for after they graduate high-school.

Here's a good trailer to a documentary about the flaws of the public school system:

thanks so much for the excellent video!

Being a single working parent...

Homeschooling is not an option for me. In 2nd grade she is learning good skills like reading & math but I keep her well informed on the propaganda which hopefully will make her a more aware person because she's been in the system but also knows what's really up.

I've been through what you are going through...

My children were in public schools. In order for me to keep my sanity, and for them to get an education, I took them out of public schools and sent them to a private school. It was moving out of the dark into the light. It was a financial challenge, but I decided their education was my gift to them. What a wonderful experience they had in middle school and high school. The school encouraged the upper classes to tutor the lower classes, either during lunch or after school. Both my children participated. They both loved the school and the teachers, and I was so grateful. Gone was the stress from having to deal with public school administration hacks, and teachers with attitude problems. If you can't afford private schools, homeschool. My daughter was homeschooled for a while, and it brought her and I closer together. We experienced many adventurers that now, as an adult,she recalls as cherished memories.

It's not going to get any better trying to deal with the system, so make a change. It will be the best decision you've ever made, I promise.

stop sending your children to the government welfare schools!

what do you expect? gov.t schools will teach gov.t propaganda and that's all there is to it.

NY City teachers are fleeing the wild beasts of the classrooms

Since a high percentage of NY City teachers are fleeing the wild beasts of the classrooms after only three or four years, perhaps they feel they must instill some brainwashing to keep the kids from threatening their educators.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

This afternoon I attended a

This afternoon I attended a faculty meeting about the Core Curriculum which is the next phase after No Child Left Behind. It is brain washing at it's finest. All instructional goals are being changed. Functional reading, using mathematical reasoning to solve problems and make decisions in every day life. No science, no history. They have even rewritten Bloom's Taxonomy. The writing is on the wall, from kindergarten on students will be tested and monitored and thier future will be predetermined. They will enter college or a job training school (or prison should they fail to obey authority or have an original thought probably) Students are being prepared to compete in a global (socialist) society. We all know that unemployment and student debt are the real problems or is that just part of the plan? Creepy!!!

Thank you, the posts here, as is yours indicate

that quite simply, the state believes it has a right to do what they please so long as we acquiesce. I am not that person. I have even seen the mantra from the school board stating that they will instruct the students to be good" global citizens"? What the heck does that mean and how will this help him and this mess we are in? I also thank the numerous posts of videos and links provided, unfortunately I am watching them and my activism grows while my revolutionary gene goes into overdrive. We need to change our world, one person at a time, all the time if we are to avoid what is coming.

Thanks again.

Homeschool him...

you might not turn out a doctor or scientist or anything, but you will teach your child HOW to think, not WHAT to think and he won't be indoctrinated by liberal nut-jobs who want him to conform to the NWO.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." (Dr. Seuss)

Why wouldn't he be a doctor or scientist?

By homeschooling him, you increase his odds of academic success not the other way around. Test scores among homeschoolers are an average of 30% higher than publicly schooled kids.

As a science teacher at my co-op, I've guided middle schoolers through more dissections than kids get through all of high school. I've done titrations with upper elementary kids, I've taught kindergartners the difference between transverse and longitudinal waves.

I didn't mean he couldn't be a scientist....

Some people think they are not worthy to homeschool their children if they don't have a teaching degree. They might not be confident that they can teach the "higher subjects", or that their children might not end up being a doctor, lawyer, scientist, etc.

I happen to be one of those homeschool moms. I'm just happy I can do the best that I can teaching them, the most important thing being that I can teach them my and my husband's values, beliefs and morals. I'm not infecting them by sending them to a government school where they will get none of that.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." (Dr. Seuss)


I am homeschooling my four youngest children. At first I was pretty nervous about it, but now that we have gotten started I can't see doing it any other way. Unless we are literally starving and I can't keep working from the computer for some reason, I don't foresee ever putting them into the indoctrination centers.

You should behave

You should behave respectfully towards authority (Honor thy father and thy mother) but that does not translate into blind obedience. I highly doubt that the OP's school is teaching the former.

Beware the IB

I just hope your child's school has not been taken over by Geneva..

Home schooled my kids

Check these out and pass it on...



Parental rights. Children are not wards of state.

So, who's training your children?

Have a blessed day.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
And those who have not heard shall understand.

Recommend this video

It is very informative, exhaustive documentary on education.

Home school kids

It's a fact that homeschooled kids are at least One and a Half years ahead of Public School kids in academic.
This is data from 30 years ago and it's still true today.
The powers that be evidently do not like it when you homeschool your kids, they make movies portraying homeschool kids as complete retards, uneducated dorks.

I agree with your comment, and…

And they also portray the parents as being sick, diseased, isolationist nut-jobs who don't even deserve to have children. I don't know if this is still true, but I read somewhere that national spelling bee champions are more often than not, you guessed it, home schooled children. The public school system has been changed into a federally funded and strictly controlled centers of indoctrination which have failed miserably to educate children. Those individuals that are truly in charge of our government are slowly but surely turning our country into a third-world nation. If they succeed in their mission, there will be no difference between the united States and any third-world society. And for that to succeed, america needs to be dumbed down, and that is exactly what they are doing. They are designing a world where everyone will think the same, look the same, live the same, and even earn the same.

Aren't you a person in authority?

IN your son's life. You don't teach him to respect you? How about the babysitter? His grandparents, his teachers. What is wrong with respecting others and recognizing their authority when they have it?

Free and Brave
or Cradle to Grave
You can't have both


I want your children to obey me when it has to do with physical safety. How scared would I be if I thought your child would say NO and run across the street when a car is coming and I as his teacher has said stop?

It's their thoughts we are concerned about... and if your school is teaching the UNESCO curriculum, (which most are) then you must deprogram them when they get home.

As Tom Woods Asks

Whatever happened to "QUESTION AUTHORITY"?

"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

Very Young Kids

Very young kids don't know about this yet.

That is why schools need to stick to teaching academics, and encourage basic values such as work hard (do your best no cheating), no violence towards others, share the school materials etc.

There should be NO POLITICAL values taught as is happening today.

So, to keep your child safe physically he should be taught to obey the teacher, but to keep him safe mentally, you should monitor what they are TEACHING.

There is a big difference here.

I'm sure you don't want your kid to come home and find out that I'd let the other beat the crap out of him. You bet they should listen to me to stop that.
