Government-run schools and the brainwashing of American children

Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it” Psalm 127:1

Christians, members of Conservative Parties, and the church body as a whole are making a tremendously dangerous mistake regarding government run schools and Common Core. Public schools are a burning building into which we send children every day with a Dixie cup of water and a pat on the head, when what we should be doing is rescuing them from the fire.

Aside from the fact that government run schools are statistically an abysmal failure with regard to providing children with an education that leads to a successful life, such institutions also systematically uproot, dismantle and eradicate the Christian teachings many children receive at home.

It is naïve and foolish to believe a few hours a week in church will undo 30+ hours a week of brainwashing. Government schools are not merely secular institutions in which religion is not part of the curriculum. Rather, many are dedicated to ANTI-Christian tenets and the teaching of godlessness.

Spinning our Wheels

As one of the worst offenders regarding the belief that we can change the government’s indoctrination institution–A.K.A. public schools– I have contacted Congressmen many times about the travesty called “national education standards” and have also cheered for politicians who claimed their platform was to “defeat” Common Core and “take back our schools.”

Many times, otherwise intelligent individuals like myself and the politicians I know do not see what should be very clear until something takes the blinders from our eyes. For me, that moment was when I was asked to review an documentary called “IndoctriNation” for film writer and author, Colin Gunn.

I never again want to hear the phrase “take back our schools.”

Government schools were never “ours” to begin with, thus dismantling the fallacy that we can take them back. Stealing the school system from the government–which is essentially what we would have to do–and turning it into a learning institution based on traditional American values will never happen. The system is what it is and cannot be changed.

Many conservatives and Christians express concern on a daily basis about Common Core and what their children are being taught in public school. However, they make the fundamental mistake of attempting to wage war against the government on this issue, while their children are simultaneously being indoctrinated in an atheist-based education system.

While mom is sending e-mails to her congressman demanding public school curriculum reform, her son is learning that the world was formed by a cosmic accident. While dad is donating money to a politician who is going to “defeat” Common Core, his eight-year-old daughter is being taught homosexuality in the classroom without his permission.

By the time American citizens realize they are misguided in their attempts to fix public schools, it will be too late to save the generation now sitting in the classroom. For this reason, Christians should be educated about why they must remove their children from public school.

Waking the Sleeping Parents

We will never again have prayer in school, we will never again have a “neutral” curriculum that does not attempt to indoctrinate children with liberal philosophies, and we will never again have a majority of unbiased teachers who present both sides of any argument.

Gunn refers to our current education system as “Pharaoh’s school,” which obviously does not make sense to those who are not of the Christian faith: however, it is merely another way of saying that this well-organized system is nothing more than a pagan learning institution.

Sending Children to Their Doom While Asking for God’s Blessing

A godless society is the result of children receiving a godless education and that is what we have in America. Conservative values are ridiculed and scorned, while liberal ideology is celebrated. This attitude, embraced by the masses, was learned in the school of the government. Therefore, rather than running around cheering for politicians who want to “overturn Common Core,” we should instead see the futility of this approach and remove our children from a place where God has already told us they do not belong:

In the First Psalm, Christians read “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.” (NIV) How can we send our children to public school and expect them or ourselves to be blessed? According to the aforementioned scripture, we are sending them into the precise environment God told us to avoid.

God will not honor the efforts of parents or politicians to reform the house that humanism built because such efforts are nothing more than an attempt to compromise with a pagan system built on the foundation of atheism. God will only honor the prayers we pray over our children’s minds if we follow his instructions and ensure our children are not placed in the government’s institution of indoctrination.

A Task Assigned to Parents Delegated to the Government

The Bible tells us that we are to train up our children in the way they should go, not turn this task over to a godless government. However, on a daily basis, numerous Christian parents turn their children over to total strangers about whom they know nothing and allow them to indoctrinate their minds for 12 straight years.

It is s fact that only 12 percent of children raised in Christian homes graduate from public school still embracing their faith. A whopping 88 percent graduate as liberals who no longer believe the Bible. This statistic alone dismantles the argument of many well-meaning Christians and Pastors who believe that their children can be “the salt of the earth” and effectively witness for Christ in a public school.

If we sent missionaries overseas to Africa, India and similar countries to convert people to Christianity and 88 percent of them came home converted to pagan religions instead, wouldn’t we realize we were doing something wrong? Mathew 8:13 asks us “..what good salt is if it has lost its savor?” Children and teachers cannot be the “salt of the earth” in public schools, because the minute they say the name of Jesus they are silenced: Salt without savor.

Every Christian parent and Christian pastor in the United States should sacrifice a tiny fraction of their life to view the movie IndoctriNation, which won the Jubilee Award for Best Documentary at the 2012 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. The movie digs deep into the disturbing, abominable and devilish tenets taught to children in public school and how they are cleverly disguised as “national standards.” Stop trying to rebuild the Devil’s house and remove your children from Pharaoh’s school.

  1. Wow! What a sobering report that should alert us and wake us up to an awareness of how the public schools are doing their best to corrupt our helpless children. This is the main reason so many young people believed they should support a socialist for President of the United States! Thank you, Jesse!

  2. I enjoyed reading this article. Broadt once again has tackled a hard subject–the hijacking of our school system by the government. As I recall, there is no law that states one must send their children to public school, only a law that states a reasonable attempt must be made to educate one’s child. Public schools began as a way to ensure poor children and those unable to afford an education any other way, would be educated. However, at present, the school system is not following that very basic rule. It has, as all things run by the government, become a runaway cash cow for administrators, teachers, supervisors and for whatever else is deemed “necessary” to educate children. In my book, there is no excuse for this. The government should not be running our schools. We ARE the government, but we the people can’t seem to understand that concept. Thank you taking on another big issue. Beautifully written piece!
