Coronavirus: Perfect Time to Rescue Children From Public School
Amid nationwide school closures due to the Wuhan virus (also known as coronavirus and COVID-19), advocates of real education through homeschooling and private Christian schools are pointing to a silver lining: Millions of American children at home, safe from the increasingly extreme indoctrination, sexualization and dumbing down taking place in government schools.
As school closures were announced, proponents of homeschooling were quick to step in and offer support for the affected families. Online alternatives also jumped in with offers of support, including free classes. Online K-12 school FreedomProject Academy, for example, a partner of FreedomProject Media, released numerous educational videos to the public so that children home from school can learn important history online â€” for free. Other services are doing the same....
Some interesting points, Neil. However, most of these immigrants have extended families and not nuclear ones. Extended families are the biblical types

25. But Jesus summoned them, and said, â€śYou know that the rulers of the nations lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 26. It shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. 27. Whoever desires to be first among you shall be your bondservant, 28. even as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.â€ť
I find very few in the federal government that fits the above description.
There is also the chance many teenagers wonâ€™t return to school if schools canâ€™t open and if jobs of mom and dad dries up. Teenagers may end up leaving home or just running away. I hope parents take the online school format, and seriously consider how young children can benefit from being home schooled. But, the month we stay home may have a very hard time to return to work or school. I think China thought if their economy slows down , then everyone else should also. The cost of this virus is devastating for all.
It's good to see that the homeschooling people are offering the alternative. I wonder, how will people find out about it? Does anyone reading this know of children home from govt schools who have adopted this? I thought kids are just continuing with their classes online, and schools even give out computers for them to follow along. I wonder if those computers even allow for something else to be used instead. Or a tracking software that would alert the teacher that Jane or Johnny is not following along, kinda like an attendance roll. Otherwise, how do they know any kids are following the lessons? But I do think online is better for kids today than the classroom, and we may see an increase in test scores from this period.

Agree on your 1st proposition, but how many households even have "both parents" anymore? Irresponsibility is rewarded by the welfare system. The American nuclear family is a rare curiousity now, except among "unwashed" immigrants who haven't yet been seduced by self-absorbed American individualism (characteristic of both Left and Right). Their descendants will fall into line.

Victoria Brown wrote: This pandemic threatens the safety and economics of a child-care arrangement shared by millions of American families .... A full grasp on our current situation demands we make the link between paid work, school and the unpaid work of grandparents who provide child care in every Zip code. Without a decent, affordable child-care system, flexible work hours and paid sick leave, the over-65 population is propping up families all over the United States by performing essential child care free. Remove those grandparents from the family system, and we get yet another breakdown in our social system. Donâ€™t remove them, and you may kill Granddad â€” or Grandma. Paradoxically, we constitute the labor force that parents most need right now. How do families decide what to do?...

One wonders if the writers of the "New German", aren't all Catholic priests who never married or had children?
