It amazes me how many people still believe that government schools have no alternative motive. They fool themselves into believing “Good’lo Uncle Sam is just trying to teach the kids to read – even if he isn’t a very good teacher.” If that is your opinion, how do you explain such a rapid descent from our Christian roots? Well, I believe that this government has an alternative motive for forced schooling.
Still, this is new twist that took me by surprise. Apparently, indoctrination of the young is taking too long to push the government’s radical agenda. So, in an effort to speed up the conversion process, Obama and our “helpful government” have resorted to teaching kids, so that the kids can teach their parents. “Gayle Pollard-Terry, LAUSD spokeswoman, said “teens are part of a ‘pilot’ program to test whether young people can be trained as messengers to deliver outreach and limited education to family and friends in and around their homes,” according to Heartlander Magazine’s Loren Heal. Mrs. Obama hinted at this awhile ago and we all shrugged it of as a Freudian slip.
“Their fate isn’t set yet,” Mrs. Obama said. “We still have everything in our power because the other beautiful thing is that kids change quickly. Their habits are easily broken. They are so malleable, and they’re waiting for the right information, the right opportunities, and once they have it, they just go.”
“Many of the children in the public schools, they take this information, they understand it,” said Mrs. Obama. “They apply it to their lives, and they push their parents and their families to be different. That’s one of the reasons why we start with kids oftentimes. They are ready for change sometimes when we’re not.”
“That’s why we start with kids, right?” Michelle said. “We can affect who they will be forever.”
In this particular case, Obama is using school children to sell their parents on his unpopular “Obamacare.” A law that in part, forces Christian organizations to fund abortions! Perhaps, this is why Arne Duncan wants 14 hour school days, 7 days a week. If your kids are still in public school, this may be a good time to pull them and start homeschooling!
Wether you agree or disagree, we’d love to hear from you.

My wife and I are British missionaries living in South Africa so we are not impacted directly by the policy of the American government and there are those who do seem to have personal agendas that they want to push through schools. The challenge we have as Christians as I see it though, is not just to simply complain at the injustices we see, but to offer practical alternatives that work. If we achieve that, then we will automatically make a positive impact on culture.

I agree. I also feel like this explains the Headstart Program. The earlier they get kids away from their parents the more trust children and parents have in outside education. Also, it gets kids out of the home faster so the at-home-parent can get back to work. (taxable income!)
