I Refuse to Stand By While My Students Are Indoctrinated

Children are afraid to challenge the repressive ideology that rules our school. That’s why I am.

This is the strongest argument yet for homeschooling your kids. And this connects with the post just below, “Content Of Our Character.”

I had students come to me with the same concerns…they were being graded on their political opinions, not the work they turned in, they were shut down in class discussions for disagreeing with the professor, or they were ridiculed by professors.

I left academia before my university came down to having faculty sign what would amount to loyalty oaths. No, as far as I know they haven’t started that. Yet. It’s likely just a matter of time.

  1. The problem with leaving is that it allows the Left to win by default b/c there is no one remaining to oppose them in any position of power.

    1. True, and I faced that dilemma when I left academia (who will be there for my students?) but in the end, as an educator, you likely won’t be allowed to stay, so get out before they can ruin your life. Additionally, there’s something to be said for showing that you are not willing to compromise by leaving.

  2. I have been an educator for 30 years, retiring now to work exclusively with homeschoolers. I agree that this leaves fewer of us in the system to offer alternative opinions, but we are not allowed to do so anyway. By leaving, at least I don’t give the students the misimpression that I actually support the ideology. I also let them know where to find me on the outside.
