Have you recently had a tough day homeschooling? Kids been demanding or difficult? If you need a reason to steel your resolve to homeschool, keep reading.
Last week I was talking about the seeming explosion of [s-x]ual abuse of children at schools by public education employees. Just this weekend I read a commentary on the same issue by David Kupelian (author, The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom) at World Net Daily. It is not our imagination:
“According to a major 2004 study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education – the most in-depth investigation to date – nearly 10 percent of U.S. public school students have been targeted with unwanted sexual attention by school employees.”
Even worse, some judges who are called to adjudicate these cases think that just because teacher – student [s-x] is illegal, that in itself isn’t enough to make it a crime (cue the Twilight Zone music):
“In yet another recent court case, U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten in Kansas also questioned whether [s-x] with kids was really bad. “Where is the clear, credible evidence that underage [s-x] is always injurious? If you tell me because it is illegal, I reject that,” Marten said, according to the Associated Press.”
It is up to us to protect our children. The schools won’t, and the courts won’t.

I appreciate your posting this info. My wonderful girlfriend, much older than me, had two of her children raped by public high school teacher who were homosexual. Both of those children were taken down that path as young teenagers within the walls of the school. They are both now adults practicing that life style. My girlfriend has gone through tremendous heartache and pain because of this. Unfortunately, the church doesn't seem to want to hear these warnings about the dangers of our public schools. Thanks for posting.Edited by momofsix on Thursday, July 27, 2006 at 3:44 PM
