Earlier this month a new proposal was announced which has unnerved many of the 60,000 and growing homeschooling families. The new proposal, if introduced, will force all home-schooled children to register at their local council office in an attempt to “prevent young people from disappearing off the radar”.
The Government claims the proposed register is not intended to clamp down on home-schooling, but to protect children from what they describe as “dangerous influences”. The question is, what could be deemed a dangerous influence?
Though the Government are edging forward with this under the pretence of protecting children, the reality of what this proposal is designed to do is anything but protecting children.
Home-schooling provides parents with the ability to educate their children in a way that best suits their children’s method of learning, it is also a way of removing children from much of the state propaganda that is being taught in the schooling system. Its pretty standard practice throughout the World to deliver an education to the children of the Country that favours its leaders, promotes obedience to authority and condemnation of dissenters.
So when they say it is to protect Children from dangerous influences what exactly does that mean?
Well, they often use the example of some home-educated children who are being exposed to Islamic Extremism and I think
But other dangerous influences could also be an anti-vaccine influence, anti-government influences, education on historical events which don’t match the official narrative. The Public schooling system is designed to “prepare children for modern life” as education secretary, Damian Hinds puts it. Not to understand the society for what it is, not to be aware of the Criminal behaviour our Government inflict on the people within its borders and outside its borders, not to understand how its criminal monetary system works, none of these things – just simply to ensure children grow into obedient citizens who conform to the
State Schooling is Indoctrination by Design
The following is taken from a book entitled ‘Principles of Secondary Education’ by Alexander Inglis, the book was published in 1918 and set much of the foundation we see today in our schooling systems in the Western World. Alexander Inglis was a Harvard University professor and was so revered for his work that Harvard University even named an important lecture made in 1933 after him.
These three points are what Inglis believes should be the primary core functions of the secondary school system:
(1) The preparation of the individual as a prospective citizen and cooperating member of society the Social-Civic Aim;
(2) The preparation of the individual as a prospective worker and producer the Economic-Vocational Aim;
(3) The preparation of the individual for those activities which, while primarily involving individual action, the utilization of leisure, and the development of personality, are of great importance to society the Individualistic-Avocational Aim.
So in a nutshell what Inglis is saying is that the Schooling systems primary aim is to produce ‘like-minded’ ‘workers and producer’ who will easily slip into society and join the herd. There is no mention of creating free-thinking individuals who have the ability to think for themselves, question already established belief systems and thrive for knowledge, in fact it is clear that schools were always intended to do what they are doing today, creating workers which can keep their machine known commonly as ‘society‘, running.
Its unlikely this new proposal won’t be introduced, the consultation period and discussion is merely part of the process which needs to occur prior to being written into law. What is uncertain however is just how heavy-handedly they uphold it.
