Lockdowns, masks, forced virtual learning, extracurricular activities, and sports canceled; it is no surprise there has been a rise in homeschooling. Homeschooling has been a controversial issue for decades worldwide; however, after watching leftist politicians bring hot political topics such as social justice curriculum into the classroom, many parents have begun considering taking their kids out of government-run schools due to indoctrination.
In 2018, instead of being taught by their teachers, students were instructed to walk out of class on National School Walk Out Day. One Ohio student was even suspended for refusing to follow the MOB that walked out of the school. Ideologues often intervene at this level by writing the scripts for teachers to advocate for far-left policies such as LGBT and anti-Semitic fabrication in their lessons. In the winter of 2020, things went from bad to worse when the school system could not handle the coronavirus pandemic.

In government-run schools, parents and teachers are losing control over the classroom curriculum due to indoctrination. Indoctrination happens in many ways, but its main instrument is the school system. Indoctrination involves pushing a particular narrative in the absence of any critical thinking or presentation of the other viewpoints. Parents watched as schools across the nation participated in the demonstration to “protest Congress” during the National School Walkout, a nationally held protest as part of the 2018 US demonstrations against gun violence.
Today parents are becoming more concerned about what their children are being exposed to in their daily assignments when schools across the country went to virtual learning during the coronavirus pandemic. Parents are concerned about the extreme left policies of coercive thought reform, otherwise known as brainwashing of their children. An EdChoice public opinion poll suggests that more than half of parents with school-age kids have a more favorable view of homeschooling after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. See summary poll results from EdChoice:
Question: Are you more or less likely to enroll your son or daughter in a homeschool, neighborhood homeschool co-op, or virtual school once the lockdowns are over?
More Likely: 40.8%
Less Likely: 31.1%
Question: School choice gives parents the right to use the tax dollars designated for their child’s education to send their child to the public or private school which best serves their needs. Generally speaking, would you say you support or oppose the concept of school choice?
Question: Federal Tax Credit Scholarship (Education Freedom Scholarships)?
Study after study has confirmed families’ private homeschooling experience allows kids to learn, grow, and mature at their own pace – read these study results. The question remains unanswered of how much government indoctrination will grow? Will masks continue to be mandated in the classroom, for how long, and will coronavirus vaccines be mandated to attend school? Will parents continue to allow these abuses?
Now maybe the time to consider homeschooling more than ever.
