Tax time can be a very discouraging time for homeschooling parents. I have no children in public school, yet I’ve spent thousands over the past few decades to finance the schooling of other peoples’ children. I know the argument—we pay for police, fire, and paramedics whether or not we require their services. This is true, and there are other civic services that I pay taxes toward without complaint.
But the state of public education is such that, if the comparisons to other civic services were taken to heart, we would have fire department arsonists, police criminals, and paramedics that euthanized their patients. In short, public education as currently practised, is a grave danger to children, and to the taxpayers who must pay the salaries of the teachers, administrators, and the properties and their upkeep.
Public education is a place where Christian values are forbidden, but where the secular left feels free to teach children that sexual perversion is normal, that skin colour determines status of victimhood or oppressor, and that the ultimate determiner of all that is right and good is government. But enough about that—that’s clear to anyone who has eyes to see.
As a homeschooling parent, you may resent the fact that you are paying for schooling that you must never participate in, while financing your own schooling at home.
All that is money gone.
But here’s the encouraging thing: you win, and those who took your money only have that. They do not have your children. Your children win. They will learn truths that will not be contradicted by a LGBTQpedo. Your kids won’t have their sexuality questioned. In fact, they won’t learn the lie that gender is a social construct which has nothing to do with the child’s sex. Your kids will not be a target for nonsense. Your kids will learn actual things with which they can grow into adults who honour the Lord with their work. Your kids will not wait until forty to have children, but will likely have larger families. That is a win.
Your kids will win because they won’t be so foolish as to sign up for “studies” –religious studies, feminist studies, indigenous studies, LGBTQ studies, or anything like it. If they do go to university it will likely be for the hard sciences and they will know how to digest knowledge and spit out the husk.
No matter the cost, if you keep your kids close to you, you will have won.
