School violence is one of the many reasons my children will never step foot in a government school. The video below says it all. A 13 boy is nearly beaten to death by 3 fifteen-year-old thugs – while everyone watches, and some even cheer!
The bus driver does all that he is required to do, which is nothing, or next to nothing. All that he is required to do is report the incident. He does not have to intervene if he fears the situation is not safe. That of course, leaves a 13 year-old boy to fend for himself. What man, stands by and watches a child beaten to death for fear of his own safety?
And while only one boy was beaten and sent to the hospital, the rest of the school will live in terror, aware that at any moment they too could become a target; knowing that they are alone – their school unable or unwilling to protect them.
Now you would think that after a horrific assault like this, the school would be shut down, or at the very least loving parents would rush to pull their children out! But I’ll bet that even the boy nearly beaten to death will be right back to school the moment he is well enough to leave the hospital!
Of course, things will be different now. He will know better than to report drug dealers. He will know better than to trust the system, the administrators, and his own parents. He will learn to survive and live according to the prison-yard-rules that schools so closely resemble. He will keep his head down and his mouth shut. What a great lesson. And I don’t mean to be facetious, but is this is the type of socializing homeschoolers are missing? Thank God!
No, until schools can provide a reasonably safe environment for our kids, they have absolutely no right to compel any student to attend! Insanity! No education is worth a child’s life. How can parents can be so calloused, offering their own children up as sacrificial lambs on the altar of forced schooling?
I realize not all schools are like this, but it only takes one bully, one time, to ruin a child’s life. Can anyone give me a good reason why this poor boy should be compelled to go back to school? What if it was your son or daughter, would you force them to return to school? Whether you agree or disagree, we want to hear your opinion.
