A Special Word to Parents


Many parents long to take back responsibility for their children. They know that they, and not a bureaucratic system, are in the best position to determine what is right for their children. They feel trapped and badgered by a governmental system that insists that the opposite is true and often goes on to hurt their children.

Many parents don't realize that more often than not, it is already in their power to take their children back, and many more are outright afraid to do so. This fear says more about government schools than anything else.

These schools that claim so much good will and so much expertise routinely use fear tactics to keep students in and to keep parents out. New rules are added each year to scare students into regular attendance and to scare parents into forcing it, even when their children have made it clear that school is a place of misery for them.

Other students, of course, adjust to school and even enjoy certain aspects of it, but their parents can see the many subtle ways they are being hurt or deprived of knowledge important to their moral, spiritual or economic well-being, as well as knowledge important to their future as free individuals.


Taking the step from dependence on government schools to total personal responsibility can be frightening. But the fright doesn't last long and the exhilarating sense of freedom and self-respect after the initial scare is well worth it. As parents and students take back control of their lives and future, as they empower themselves, they act in the independent tradition of the people who built this country. Above all, they put the government back in its proper place of servant, not master.


Remember, if you start turning your money over to your servant and asking him to make your decisions for you and take care of you, he is soon your master.


We have a special message for you . . .

If you are a parent of faith . . .
