The Future of Christian Education

Image result for images of christian homeschooling

Throughout the 1970s and 80s, Chalcedon founder R.J. Rushdoony campaigned tirelessly for Christian education, homeschooling, and Christian schools. He traveled all over the country, testifying as an expert witness in many homeschooling trials. When he started, Christian homeschooling was forbidden in many districts. Today, it has spread from coast to coast.

Chalcedon continues its work for Christian education, with our own homeschooling mentor, Andrea Schwartz, at the helm. For example:

It’s hard work, traveling to conferences, networking with homeschooling parents all over America, blogging and writing about it, spreading the word and walking the walk. We’re proud of Andrea’s unceasing efforts for the cause.


Algebra and Me

This is the story of an educational cockup based on a failure to understand human nature.

I got some good grades in junior high school, so I was placed in an advanced math class in which “Temac,” short for “teaching machine,” was supposed to teach me algebra. It was a book with algebra problems on the left side of the page, which we were to solve in our notebooks… and the answers, under a sliding black plastic sheet, on the right side. As we finished each section, we were to turn in our notebooks for grading.

How many nanoseconds did it take me to figure out that all I had to do, to get the right answer to any problem, was to slide the sheet down the page and copy the right answer into my notebook? Voila! An A in Algebra! And without learning a blessed thing.

I think our teacher was a real mathematician who somehow found himself teaching in a middle school and had no concept of “temptation.” He saw the right answers in my notebook and gave me A’s.

Those right answers qualified me for Accelerated Math in high school, for which I had no foundation whatsoever. By peeking at the answers to get good grades, I learned no algebra at all! And boy, did I pay for that in high school.

The moral of the story is, if you make it really easy to cheat, and reward it, people are going to cheat. I’m not proud of what I did, but the temptation was far too strong for me to resist at that age. It prepared me to make a total hash of high school math. Geometry, Algebra II, and Trigonometry–disasters all.

I’m pretty sure I could do basic algebra, now that I’m older and have gotten all that cheating out of my system.

Or I could just keep on cheating and become a climate scientist.

Evil, Aimed at Children

This is so grotesque, so morally down the drain, you may have difficulty believing it. But we’re talking about people who chant “Hail, Satan!” when they demonstrate for “abortion rights.”

The Drag Queen Story Hour (https://www.dragqueenstoryhour.org/) wants to seep into your local kindergarten or your public library and provide very young children with “unabashedly queer role models.” Check out the pictures. If I’d ever seen something like this when I was five years old, I’d still be having nightmares about it today.

Uh, hello… hello? How come one single atheist, with one complaint, can stop the school’s annual Christmas concert, but no amount of parental protests can keep the LGBT vampires out of the kindergarten classroom. We pay for these facilities! Why must we tolerate what we pay for being used against us, to freak out our kids and undermine our families? If the school or the public library is going to bring in Drag Queen Story Hour, the town should at least allow us to withhold our taxes. These schools and public libraries ought to belong to us, because we pay for them. They should not be used as culture-killers.

Like I say, they’re gonna need a bigger hell.

Because that’s where these fools are headed if they don’t repent and change their course.


It’s OK to be Racist if You’re a University

Image result for images of stupid college students

Don’t you just love the way our looniversities use language? We haven’t seen anything like it since the Tower of Babel.

At California Polytechnic, “Diversity Action Initiatives” are being put into play to reduce the number of white students. This is done by the school’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11111).

“Inclusion” means excluding white students. And “Diversity” means a rigid uniformity of thought.

The looniversity brags that in 2011 white students were 63% of the student body, but in 2017, less than 55%. And they’ll keep on “culling” white kids until they can say their student body reflects “the demographics of California.”

All right, I’m listening: tell me how this is not a racist policy. Go ahead, give it your best shot.

Meanwhile, the school plans to add “pre-enrollment diversity training,” whatever the hell that is. Probably some scheme to make students’ minds right. More expensive than a sweat box, but still effective. If it wasn’t making students visibly more disturbed and addled, they wouldn’t do it.

Hey, if people really want to send their sons and daughters to a school like that, it’s their business. But why should any public money be poured into an actively racist institution? Why do we have to keep paying them to screw up our country?

De-fund the universities. All of them. Now.

‘Stalin U: 51% of Collidge Students Want Restrictions on Speech’ (2015)

Along with Hollywood, the courts, unrestricted immigration, and the Democrat Party itself, public education is among the siege equipment used by the Left to bring down America.

If they fail, it won’t be because the universities didn’t give it their best shot. For instance:

“Free speech? We don’t need no stinkin’ free speech!”


‘Diversity Been Very, Very Good to Me!’

(Thanks to Sidney for the news tip)

I missed this when it happened in 2016: the University of Michigan awarded some bozo a salary of $385,000 to be a “chief diversity and inclusion officer” (https://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/22910). It was part of an $85 million “diversity plan” which would bring a golden age of “inclusive scholarship,” whatever the deuce that is.

Coincidentally, the looniversity raised tuition 3.9%.

Think about it: $85 million for pure, unadulterated crapola. Think about that while you break your backs working to pay your kids’ tuition. Think about it when they finally graduate and come back home to live in your cellar because their degrees in Gender Studies and Wise Women of Color Super-Hero Studies disqualify them for any gainful employment.

I wonder what the chief diversity and inclusion officer earns now, two years later.

Somehow I just haven’t got the heart to look it up.


College Idiocy Du Jour

Even this would be an improvement.

The student government at California State Polytechnic Looniversity has voted to spend $15,000 for “social justice programming” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11052). We are not told what they mean by “programming.” I thought they were already doing plenty of that.

They’re also going to create a Diversity and Inclusion Committee and a “permanent secretary of diversity and inclusion,” whatever the deuce that means. The committee will have power “to make recommendations for inclusive language and consideration of student intersectionality’s [sic]…”

Blather Bingo!

This is crap, and parents who spend a fortune to send their sons and daughters to these dope factories ought to have their heads examined.

De-fund the colleges now. They are hurting America.

What are we supposed to do with the millions of intellectual poverty cases that these schools turn out, a few years down the road?

Stop it now.


‘Collidge Big Shots Shred Constitution (Literally)’

Image result for images of shredding constitution

Someday, once Far Left Fever burns itself out and the country comes to its senses, it’s going to be very, very hard for certain people to say, “Well, we didn’t mean it!” Like these, for instance:

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/09/collidge-big-shots-shred-constitution-literally/

So our introlllecturals don’t like the Constitution?

If you had to choose between keeping them or keeping the Constitution, which would it be?
