|Mad Mondays readers are well aware of the pitfalls in America’s education system. Two years of remote learning have revealed many problems that were flying under the radar. Parents are more aware of what is going on inside their children’s classrooms and are more willing to fight for what they believe. |
But Progressives, especially in the academy, continue to be baffled as to why parents care what their kids are taught. Nikole Hannah-Jones of the infamous 1619 Project recently said that parents should leave the teaching to experts as did former Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe.
A 2014 clip of former MSNBC host Melissa Hall-Perry saying that children don’t belong to their parents has resurfaced on the internet. Not to be outdone, a leftist writer wrote earlier this month that “raising your own children should be illegal.” (Update: Apparently the article is satirical in the style of Jonathan Swift, but we weren’t the only ones who were confused.)
We know that Mad Christians are wide awake when it comes to what their kids learn. If you are interested in exchanging home schooling ideas with other like-minded parents, you can find great conversations on the Mad Christian Discord (request an invitation to join here).
Asaph recalled God’s acts of kindness to Israel:
“That they should make them known to their children;
that the generation to come might know them,
The children who would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children,
That they may set their hope in God,
And not forget the works of God”
There are many forces which seek to pull our families apart and sabotage faith. But the prince of the power of the air is a defeated foe, and Jesus, who gives our children faith, is able to keep them until he comes again.
Last year, conservative media reported that California schools were teaching students to pray to Aztec gods. Religion News says that the program has now been abolished much to the chagrin of the ethnic studies profs.
