Public Schools Forcing Conversion to Christianity

 Valyntyne Hale (yeesh, what a name) and her dad like to worship the Devil and stuff.  Whatever.  Their life.  But her middle school won't let her wear dog collars and skirts so short, everyone can see her hoochie.

“The school is bound and determined to use any means necessary to try to convert her to Christianity,”  her dad whined recently.  The school made her change her skirt (and possibly remove her bondagewear - the article didn't mention).

Funny thing, that.  I think by this standard of measurement, most schools all over the world are now Christian schools.  The missionaries can all come home now.

  1. I fail to see how changing a skirt and removing the collar is gong to change anyone's religion. That father needs to be happy his daughter is getting an education and stop whining. For that matter, what father is happy to see his daughter go to school in a skirt so short you can see her hootchie?

  2. With a "dad" like that, I feel sorry for the girl.

  3. Ha! This reminds me of a speaker I went to listen to the other day. He was talking about how his church leaders thought their public school was sufficiently Christian and a good place to send children to since most of the school teachers were also the church's Sunday school teachers.

    Sure enough, someone filed a lawsuit against the school for "establishing religion." And what was this establishment of religion? Were the teachers leading the children in prayer? Singing hymns? Leading in altar calls? Nooo...The lawsuit was because the school used green and red napkins at Christmas time, thus establishing religion!

    At least that's the story he told...I haven't verified it.

    2. I could sue the school because I'm a fundie and think such things are rather Pagan! Establishing religion, indeed.

      I suppose the colours "evoke" Christmas, but plenty of Jewish people have lived in harmony with us and put up with, "Merry Christmas" for years. We should take a lesson from God's chosen people next time we're offended.

      I'm on several fb groups and some are flipping out about school districts giving Muslim holidays off. *shrug* If they're a large minority in the district, I don't think it should be something we fight about.

      Maybe we are more concerned about the "give an inch, they take a mile" aspect of it. But we shouldn't be the less generous party for all that. We are being given an opportunity to truly practice our religion in doing so. :)

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
