This is exactly what needs to happen. Children belong with their parents. How did we ever become willing to hand them over to strangers anyway, when we know not what their morals and beliefs are or what they will be teaching our children?
Today’s edjewcation seeks only to pervert and poison the children. May their efforts to corral the good people of the world into their evil agenda backfire completely. May everything they do turn around and work for The Good.
California Homeschool Numbers Quadruple In Past Three Years
Whether it be a perceived political indoctrination, a disagreement with vaccine laws, or increasingly large classroom sizes, homeschooling numbers in California are breaking at the seams. The surge in California homeschooling, for many, is considered proof of a state with an overreaching and broken system.
Back in 2016, California passed one of the toughest mandatory vaccine laws in the nation. At the time, there was nothing like SB-277 anywhere in the nation. With SB-276, a bill that would allow the state’s public health department to review medical vaccine exemptions, waiting in the wings for passage, many parents remain on edge. Even celebrities like Jessica Beil are protesting SB-276 for what they feel is an overreaching law that intimidates medical professionals.
In California, there’s a vaccine divide. The state, on one side, is attempting to reduce exemptions. Parents seeking medical freedom are on the other side hoping to expand choices.
Statistics don’t lie.
During the 2016-17 school year, 1,880 kindergartners were not vaccinated. Last year, that number dramatically increased to 6,741 kindergartners. The Sacramento Bee reported that vaccine medical exemptions have tripled in the past two years alone.
But the rising home school numbers aren’t just a result of a vaccine divide. California schools have recently come under fire for pushing politics, as well. Last April, parents protested a proposed statewide education reform plan that allows schools to read transgender materials, such as My Princess Boy, to students. Parents are calling much of the overhaul a massive overstep that allows sexually explicit materials to be promoted to young children. Schools are also coming under fire for teaching climate change.
California parents are strongly embedded in one trench or the other, there are hardly middle grounds on any of these issues.
California Homeschooling Numbers Are Exploding
Sure, the vaccine issue is blamed for much of the rise in California homeschooling numbers. But the fact is, the increase is a result of an overall war for parental freedom regarding a slew of issues. The Los Angeles Times reported last week that the number of vaccine exemptions and home-school kids has tripled. Again, the correlation between numbers might be slightly unfair, however, it’s all leading to one big massive showdown between parents and state.
