• School Choice: Unmasking the Euphemism

    “It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.” – George Orwell, 1984 As is so often the case in politics, pundits and activists give friendly sounding names to hot-button political movements to mask the true character of these matters. Abortion advocates are labeled “pro-choice.” Genital mutilation becomes “gender affirming care.” Illegal aliens become “undocumented workers.” Women become “birthing persons.”  This is certainly the case with the “school choice” issue. At the most basic level, the term “school choice” substitutes the concept of choice (options, opportunity) for the true focus of the movement, government education funding. School choice programs take on many forms – public charter school programs and virtual charter programs, magnet schools, intra-district…

  • Why June is the Perfect Month to Start Homeschooling

    It’s that time of year again. Each June public and private school teachers, unions, and education associations fall all over themselves in the ultimate virtue signaling contest – trying to demonstrate who has the most “pride.” Even while Target, Bud Light, The North Face, and Kohl’s are reeling from large-scale boycotts in response to woke LGBTQ+ ad campaigns and product displays, teachers and administrators are doubling down on their support of gay and trans indoctrination in classrooms and school libraries across the country. On the first night of the month, in a little under an hour, I was able to find dozens of instances of teachers and their representative organizations…

  • 20 Questions EVERY PARENT Should be Able to Answer About Education

    As I write this, we’re in the middle of a recording blitz. We always try to get ahead of recording for the Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast and Homeschool Insights Podcast before summer, and this always tends to be a busy time of year for us appearing on other shows, as well. Yvette recorded two interviews today. I’ll be on a podcast tonight and another live show early tomorrow morning. As I have been preparing for my interviews, I realized that the questions that will be asked and answered on these shows are the same questions that EVERY parent should be able to answer about education. And some of them aren’t that obvious. So…

  • “Am I Doing Enough?” – Unlock Your Homeschooler’s Potential with an Accountability Mindset

    Are you a homeschool parent looking to unlock your child’s potential? Are you uncertain if you’re doing enough to reach that potential? Do you often find yourself asking “am I doing enough?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Jodi Mockabee faced this same challenge and discovered an accountability mindset that embraced the uncertainty while striving to make intentional decisions for her children. In this post, we’ll outline how she did it, and show you how you can do the same and gain the same peace of mind she did. “That one voice, and we’ve talked about it earlier, of am I doing enough? That tends to stick around with homeschoolers almost on the daily.…

  • Are They Really YOUR Children?

    “It takes a village to raise a child.” Hillary Clinton It has long been asserted that the left believes that children don’t belong to their parents, but is there any proof of this claim? The answer is a resounding “yes.” In this post I will let prominent progressive leaders and educators speak for themselves. However, I think it is necessary before we before we begin to remind you that to a certain extent the state DOES own your children – at least when you drop them off at a public school. This is why I caution every parent to understand the legal concept of “In Loco Parentis.” “In Loco Parentis” means “in…

  • Dr. James Dobson Said What?

    It isn’t every day you get a letter from Dr. James Dobson, but by the grace of God, recently we received a really encouraging letter from him congratulating us on the release of Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution. You see, Dr. Dobson is a huge fan of home education and was very excited to see a powerful new tool to encourage parents to take back their children and train their hearts at home. “Schoolhouse Rocked is excellent and a wonderful testimony to the growing popularity of home schooling and the superior education that it provides young people.” Dr. James C. Dobson Here’s a short quote from the letter: “I’ve been…

  • Prayers and Help Needed -Urgent Update

    Prayers and help urgently needed. Last Monday, Garritt was racing down the sidewalk with our daughter, Lacey, when he fell and broke his elbow really seriously. After a full week of extreme pain and very little sleep, today he had surgery to have his elbow replaced. As you can imagine, this has meant a ton of stress and exhaustion for our whole family, and he is just starting the recovery process now. This injury has already meant a canceled trip to show the film to a large group and to attend NRB (the National Religious Broadcasters Association) convention for a bunch of very important interviews. Additionally, it has made keeping…
