School can wound kids

Jul 12, 2012 - Jan Clayton, Riverton


Here is a scene: Mom and Dad are in the living room reading the papers. There's a knock on the door. It's the soldiers.

The children are called down from their rooms, and the soldiers take them outside and line them up along the ditch. Then they shoot them. All are wounded. Some die.

And this happens every year as moms and dads turn their children over to public school and all that is taught there.

Wounded means parts of you cease to work. Dead means your spirit is killed.

This dream, for I dreamed it, prompted my home schooling at a gallop.
