Perhaps this is one of the good things to come from the fake plague? Parents are seeing just how incredibly bad the public schools are? And how little public education actually does for the kids? Uncle Bob used to say that if he was king of North America, he’d bar the doors of the public schools with the teachers trapped inside, and burn them to the ground. Then he’d salt the earth upon which they stood. I agree with him.
King Peter and I got in an argument about it. He thinks public schools are great: exposing kids to the marginal failures produced by our society is the best way to educate the kids about them. I disagree: I don’t think letting pedos and queers teach your kids Sex Ed in elementary is a good idea. Nor is it good to expose them to drugs and booze and juvies. Or the neoliberal indoctrination... To deal with that crap, kids need a firm foundation in morals and ethics... and Marxist union slob teachers are in no position to give that to them. They’d be better facing those things as adults than when they are children.
I love the prepper community. Those guys are western civilization’s best insurance policy. They’all be growing their own food and bartering and trading for what they need - while the rest of us are wondering why the lights went out and who will take care of us now? Part and parcel of the prepper creed should be home schooling, and proper bible study should be part of their curriculum. Even if you’re not religious, western civilization is based on that thing and it contains everything you need to know about building communities that will last for eons. The voices alone justify the study.
I am betting those areas will also see a huge leap in scholastic performance and that in a few years, they’ll be producing the highest SAT scores in the country too.
