    Just something to pass along.  Matthew, you make Texas homeschooling sound very good indeed, and so does this article.

    Strangely enough, we had a short homeschool class in the car yesterday, on the way back from McDonald's, covering Mexican culture and geography.  In that short time, I was able to give a fairly coherent (I hope) presentation about key metrics (Mexico is 3x larger than Canada in population, and 1/3 the size of the US), the Mexican-American War and the territory gained, the various border cities along the Rio Grande (and I told him it is NOT the "Rio Grande River", that's a tautology, the correct name is "el Rio Bravo del Norte"), how certain Mexican cities fly huge flags and are designated as "Heroico" cities due to their roles in Mexican history, AND the story of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I was able to tell him about how Juan Diego "photobombed" the miraculous picture of Our Lady on the tilma, in that you can supposedly see his reflection in her eyes.  Not to brag, but I don't think they get this stuff in the Newchurch schools like the one I took him out of.  They're too busy discussing divorced parents (they have them reading novels about it), the event commonly known as the h0Ɩ0cαųst, and these endless little craft projects involving copious amounts of paper.  More than once I have just about blown my stack when I would open his bookbag and these cascades of index cards would come falling out.  Language was used on the odd occasion :jester:

    Rage Quit is when one quits something because it makes them mad. Think of a 5 year old "I dont want to play with you anymore!!"
    So do all who live to see such times but it is not for them to decide, all you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.

    Okay, but the article seems to think this is a bad thing. Sounds like a good thing to me to quit anything if you find it so seriously disordered that it makes you angry.

    Well THAT is a bad thing then. If they're comparing parents taking their kids out of government propaganda schools to teenagers throwing down the controller after getting insane with frustration -- that's no compliment to the new homeschoolers.

  • I think "rage-quitting" was a bit of an exaggeration on the part of the author.  I read the article, and I didn't see any "rage" there, just people from outside the stereotypical demographics, making the eminently sensible decision to homeschool their children.

  • Rage is a reasonable and justified response to what the public schools are doing to children.

    I have resolved to start calling them "government" schools.  One of the conservative talk radio hosts brought this up the other day, may have been Sean Hannity, may have been Mark Levin, I don't recall. 

    Let's start calling them that, keep repeating that one word, the same way the liberal MSM keeps parroting that one word to describe objections to the 2020 presidential election, "baseless".

    Great idea! Let's expand that to "government shots."

    Oh, dear me! Making up a term for the injection ... wow, my mind is reeling. Sometimes I called it the "hell-broth", the "Gates juice", the "distillate of hell", the "infernal concoction". Anyone else have any ideas?

    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.

  • Communist school. 

    Also, it isn’t “ cancel culture”.   It is communism.

    So do all who live to see such times but it is not for them to decide, all you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.
