I don’t know about you, but when I take on a cause or a project I’m proud of what I do. I support it against all detractors and naysayers because I believe in it. So, when proponents of a cause suddenly start to hide what they are doing, or deny they are even doing it — that should set off alarm bells and raise questions about the honesty and legitimacy of that cause. Case in point, when evidence emerged that the Earth was actually cooling instead of heating, the alarmists didn’t miss a beat as they changed the predicted disaster from Global Warming to Climate Change. These are clever guys.
Although about two million families are homeschooling their kids, most American parents still send their children to a public school. Few parents, however, know much of what goes on in their child’s school. In most cases they assume that their child’s school is not much different from the school they attended. And since they believe that the school is being run by “professional” educators, they are willing to accept whatever the school prescribes.
