School Sucks – The American Way
By William Kitner
(KTRN Exclusive) I came across this video today on-line and it really hit home. I have said for the longest time that if I ever have children, I would absolutely home school them. While a lot of people think this is a fringe idea – or something only weirdos do – it’s something I think is crucial in our current American educational system. And if they think I’m a weirdo, awesome. It’s fun being weird.
I would have no problem with my kids going to school to learn math and science, but history? No way. School is just a way to indoctrinate the children – to teach them about the greatness of America and how we are always the “good guys.” The American history that is thought in school is pure propaganda. We are teaching our children constant lies – not just about history either. Take health for example. We teach the food pyramid which has been created with help from lobbyists from the meat and dairy industries. The food pyramid being taught in schools is horribly wrong, yet we do nothing about it. My children would be taught the truth – then again the truth would probably scare the crap out of them. It scares me every day.
