Gov. Bobby Jindal: “Pull Your Kids Out of the Public Schools.”

English: Governor Bobby Jindal at the Republic...

Governor Bobby Jindal at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

It has been a long time since I heard any politico give advise that good. — jl, 419

by Gary North at the Tea Party Economist

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal gave a speech at a National Review summit  meeting on the future of conservatism.

It got some media coverage, but Cal Thomas zeroed in on a key segment of the  speech. This got no media coverage. Thomas wrote:

If Republicans want to do something about the future, they should back a  growing movement to pull children out of underperforming public schools where  often their views, values, understanding of history and even faith are  undermined. Home-schooling is an option.

The public school system, seemingly a “hot house” for growing new generations  of secular liberals, is a failure on many levels. It makes no sense to me to put  one’s children in a school system that will likely transform their minds and  souls into something quite different from those of their parents. Private school  is also an option. Many of them offer scholarships to children whose parents  can’t afford tuition. A solid education is the first step out of  poverty.

This is as good a piece of advice as any governor has provided in the last 20  years.

The exodus is continuing. Parents are pulling their children out.

Jindal is correct: home schooling is a very good option. The average American  can afford it. Mothers are capable of teaching their children. There is a  growing supply of home school curriculum materials.

    Seems like the perfect place to give those so inclined to question the system of “schooling” a glimpse of reality. Start here:

    My son attends a public school and would love to put in a private school, but because my husband makes a certain amount on his salary we are not qualified for tuition. So how am I supposed to put him in a private school if I can’t afford it? I don’t like the idea of home schooling. I want him to be with other kids and learn to socialize. But I do agree with Mr.Jindal on the fact that many public schools are growing new generations of secular liberals. Public schools no longer have prayer, or teach kids not to bully. Believe me if there was a way for me to put my son in a private school I would.


    • The lack of “socialization” is a very common and misguided objection to home schooling. There is a plethora of opportunities in every community for homeschoolers to be “socialized.” There are associations and groups that conduct everything from picnics to soccer games. Before you give up, check a little further.

      But, even if there was nothing available, it would still be an invalid objection. After all, who on Gods green earth would want their child “socialized” like he/she will be “sociaized” if sent to one of those child prisons (aka mandatory government propaganda camps)?
