Freedom of Thought


Public schools do not put the child first.

Management of the child comes first. The rules and guidelines, the indoctrination by repetition, the pleasing of authority rather than the pleasure of learning.

If you can, home school the kiddos. Let them explore knowledge they want to learn. Encourage them to read broadly.

They may not grow up to be a good employee. They will discover that we don't know it all. What they will also find is that they enjoy learning. The more they read, the easier and faster they will read, the more they will want to read.

If your kids want to know about a subject, they can study it in whatever depth they desire. If in the future they need knowledge for a project they will know how to find it, other than sign up for a class.

Here are some education and employment links:

Mark Twain said something to the effect that education is the unlearning of what we have been taught. He also said not to let your schooling get in the way of your education.

Self directed learning is a pleasure, teach that.

The most important decisions our kiddos make will be by their personal choice. Give them the tools to think and act from knowledge, independently, and with wisdom. That is true education.

Jesus is Lord!
