Post-Covid Home Schools to Slow the Spread of Public Schools

An interesting part of the Covid silver lining is that people are beginning to look at a lot of things in an entirely different light: From the real agenda of the globalists, to the "Church of Accompaniment" (which has abandoned us), to the “humble pope” who couldn’t possibly be more self absorbed, to the real motivations behind the attempted destruction of the Latin Mass, to the importance of family interaction and less dependence on big government and now to home schooling.

Studies now show, in fact, that many parents who were dragooned quite unexpectedly into educating their children at home, have in recent weeks begun moving much closer to choosing the homeschool option even after the lockdown.

In any case, homeschooling saved the day! Think what would have happened to America’s public school children during lockdown if the homeschool pioneers had not been blazing the trail for decades, showing the rest of the country, not only how it’s done but that, in most cases, it’s the superior option.

Good luck to the leftist progressivists in outlawing homeschooling next time around! God Himself has intervened, it seems, and if they want to orchestrate a second wave lockdown they'll only be solidifying the permanent establishment of the most effective means of undermining public-school indoctrination camps on the face of the earth.

So knock yourselves out, guys! Homeschooling may ultimately well play a huge part in America's salvation. 

The video below offers insight into the “trending topic” that is home schooling in America. It comes from the vantage point of an avowed libertarian, thus providing some indication of just how widespread support for homeschooling is actually becoming. It’s definitely NOT just the Little House on the Prairie crowd any more. Homeschooling is gaining big momentum, and it will spread like wildfire if, after Covid, the crazy "experts" style America's public schools after the Soviet model to "keep us safe".

Congratulations, homeschoolers. You were the avant-garde. They made fun of you for years, but guess what?  Nobody’s laughing now.  

From the video description:

So, as media outlets put it, there are now "parents and guardians forced into full-time homeschooling." Being out of school, they say, will “will set back a generation of children.”

Bunk. Media outlets make it sound awful, but the reality is that homeschooled kids -- despite being from poorer families, on average, do better on tests. They also do better in college, and they are less likely to drink or do drugs. Here are the studies on it.

Homeschooling is also easier than ever, with new technology offering amazing new options for learning at home. Watch the video below to see how parents are switching to homeschooling in the pandemic."
