“Thus, as early as 1825, educational statism, modeled on the Prussian design, was already a well-developed idea in the heads of the Harvard-Unitarian elite[s].”
In order to promote public education Carter, and his supporters, led a movement to discredit the private academies in favor of government funded schools by arguing that the poor were being disenfranchised.
The two forces perpetuating this movement were the Owenits (b. 1771 – Robert Owen, an Englishman known as the father of modern socialism),and the Unitarians.
Again Blumenfeld explains,
“[T]he grand lever, which is to raise up the mighty mass of this community is education …The schools hold, in embryo, the future communities of this land . The schools are the pillars of the republic. To these, let the strong arm of government be stretched out .Over these, let the wisdom of our legislatures watch.” “Improvement of Common Schools,” Article X, North American Review, January 1827, pp . 156-57 .
Today, Home Education is still frowned upon, although in most states it is no longer illegal. There are still some major restriction and regulations in certain jurisdictions, but at least home education is possible without fear of imprisonment.
Yet, the private citizen – whether they like it or not and whether they support Public Statist education or not – must pay for the Messianic schooling through taxation. These taxes are sometime quite burdensome and there is no way of opting out without certain infringing government caveats.
Even with funding through excessive taxation the schools are in deep trouble academically and morally. It seems as if the more money that is thrown at the system the less productive it becomes. Government education is in a grave-yard spiral – and the government knows it.
“The unprecedented decline in academic quality has precipitated a veritable exodus of children from the government schools. More and more parents are choosing private, church and home schools .The phenomenal rise of homeschooling in recent years not only indicates a disenchantment with government schools but with formal schooling in general. The demand for greater educational freedom by parents is causing alarm within the educational establishment which has, for the last one hundred years, depended on the compulsory school attendance laws to supply it with a captive clientele no matter how poor the quality of their education .”
1. Read Sam’s book cover to cover. Buy it and share it with many. Know it inside and out. Digest it and then proclaim its historical and ideological tenants. Everyone must be aware of what is happening to our nation through the statist plan for total control through the Trojan horse of the Public Education system.
2. Every church should have a school. Encourage your pastor to start one if he hasn’t already. Religious education is still honored in the United States under the first amendment. Use the freedom.The Old Testament Levites were the principle educators of the people. This pattern must be re-established. The church can also act as an umbrella protection for those who want to home educate their children. The church’s power and influence should never be underestimated. She must protect her people. She must educate Christ-ward by promoting Christo-centric education.
5. Publish various quotes in your local newspaper about how the public school system is Marxist. Show how it is actually destroying the culture and bringing the nation into judgment. Use social media to share some potent quotes for others to use. Lead the pack. Shake the people out of their slumber.
