There is a new threat to the sacred institution which is the foundation of education. Parenting.
The UN is vigorously trying to pass their rabid anti-parent and anti-religion treaties and laws. If these come to pass in the United States the rights of tens of thousands of homeschoolers will be dictated away by foreigners who don't care about us.
They will also take away the rights of parents to make decisions for their disabled children. This is even scarier; remember what happened to Terri Schiavo?
Let's all fight to stop this. You can call your Senators and reps if you want. It all helps. But the best thing to do is to change the culture.
One person at a time, change their perception of things. Show that parenting is a positive thing and that disabled kids are a blessing. Show them that homeschooling is not only possible and necessary, but it works better than public school.
One person at a time. Drop a comment. Give some support. But most of all, lead by example.
