A lot of us have known for a long time the public school system is broken, it doesn't produce successful thinking adults, it produces simple minded data regurgitating slaves to the system. In high school if you went by your guidance counselors then college is the only option you have with your life. This has DIRECTLY lead to millions of lives essentially ruined before they began because of student debt. Not every person should go to college, not every person wants to go to college, there ARE options that aren't Mcdonalds, the army, or drug dealing. For many people it would be served much better to find an actual decent job, something that's a trade that does on-the-job training and you don't need experience. Those jobs exist trust me, that's my job now.
For people that go to college and realize halfway through they wanted to stop, or worse, graduate and realize they hate the field of their major and do absolutely nothing with that degree. For a ridiculous amount of jobs what you learn in college meant nothing because you'll be trained on the job anyway. Yes there's obviously MANY fields where you MUST have the knowledge ahead of time like programming where you have to be fluent in the various languages.
The "pandemic" has exposed how much of a failure the public education system truly is. The zoom classes were a disaster, and in person schooling became glorified prison. We knew from the start that children weren't at risk from COVID-19, they could catch it of course, but they weren't dying from it. Teachers could be a different story, but how many teachers are 70+ that would actually be at risk? If they were teachers, shouldn't they have been able to actually do the research necessary to know what was going on? Honestly it's hard to blame anyone that didn't know what was going on at the start, there was a record amount of disinformation and misinformation. People are only now sorting through the BS and realizing the truth, this virus came from a lab and was orchestrated to weaken countries and get the public used to lockdowns and quarantines.
THEN there's what they're actually teaching the kids. Common core math is the worst education concept ever conceived, it is just AWFUL. It is designed to be more complicated and to ensure that kids need their stupid complex system to do basic math, they basically took basic math and made it as complex as possible. It's very important for kids to know basic math, that important greatly declines after algebra, but to learn the basic math the way kids are, they aren't going to do math correctly later in life. Besides some geometry, you won't use any high school math in the real world, well besides college, but that isn't the real world either.
All these public schools do is train kids to pass these standardized tests so that they get funding, THAT'S IT! The tests don't matter to the student AT ALL, it's not a grade, it's not on your transcript, but it gets the school funding! This irritates me to no end, the standardized tests are textbook definition "Make them all think exactly the same." Make all these students know the exact same crap, regurgitate the same, likely false, information, then ship them off to college where they're enslaved with debt the rest of their lives!
Why does it seem like there are lifelong professors that are entitled to opinions on actual real world subjects? They've spent literally they're entire life in a school, grade school, then going to college, then teaching college. They rarely had any other job besides some part time thing to get through college, and they base their entire real world experience on that job. Just because someone is an academic, actually especially just because some is an academic, means they know ANYTHING about the functioning of the real world. A very common issue with professors is that a lot of them don't actually learn things on their own, all they know is what's in those textbooks and how to talk about the stuff they teach. I know some professors in colleges actually do real on site research and experiments, but those aren't usually the professors telling people how they should live their lives and which race is bad. It's the professors that have nothing better to do so they spout the latest liberal nonsense because they don't know any better.
The only option seems to be homeschooling, because private schools are even worse in some ways, like the teaching of critical race theory. It is difficult, but if you homeschool your kids, you guarantee they are learning important skills in knowledge for their life, and not indoctrinated in a public school.
Homeschooling is the best way to KNOW your child is learning important life skills and to ensure they aren't being indoctrinated in the state ideology. With critical race theory (just soft language racism) being taught in schools, people need to recognize what is happening and take steps to ensure your child learns what's important.
Walk into most any public school in America, and you'll notice a few things almost right away. Every kid has a phone, every kid has a laptop/chromebook, every classroom has computers/smart boards/projectors, and every school has wi-fi. Google has deals with many public schools to give kids chromebooks that they do almost all their work on, at home and in school. You could say, well that's how society is heading everything is on technology now, and that's true. That push for more technology is being spearheaded by companies like Google that want to monitor and track everything we do on their technology. They're tethering everyone to a phone and/or computer so that everything they do throughout their day can be monitored. This isn't to mention that kids do not do as well learning on computers versus physically reading books and writing out their school work. They're setting kids up to only be able to function with a phone or computer in their hands, and not know much outside of technology. We need to get our children back in real classrooms with real books, so they can really learn instead of being indoctrinated by screens.
The fact that Critical Race Theory, which is literally just racism, is being taught in schools. They're teaching kids to be racist, or to hate themselves if they're white. Why are they doing this? It is obviously all orchestrated and part of their elaborate global plan, which includes the fall of the United States. This will only worsen the divide we have in the US. Schools don't tell you HOW to think, they teach you WHAT WHEN and WHERE to think. Homeschooling your children is vital to giving them a future.
