ABSTRACT: American education is at a lower point today than when the 1983 Reagan National Commission on Educational Reform delivered its devastating critique of American education. Most of the Committee’s urgent recommendations were ignored. The Christian community in particular ignored the Committee’s warnings and has failed to embrace online Christian schools or college alternatives. The consequence of Christian failure is profound and extends beyond the impact on individual families to the corporate life of the nation itself. The failure is particularly evident in areas of economics, history, government, Biblical analysis and critical thinking. In spite of this gloomy prognosis, there are some high school homeschool and college alternatives that could reverse the trend in American education and eliminate student loan debt.
Those old enough to remember can visualize the sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach as you stood glued to the TV screen that fateful September morning in 2001. The day that had dawned so calm and peaceful over most of America.
All were transfixed, watching the horror unfold before our eyes. Filtered through the corporate media lens to be sure, but nonetheless there it was.
The day the Towers came down. It was one of those handful of “Remember where you were when……?” moments that everybody experiences in life.
As the reel of bodies in free fall looped endlessly throughout the day, a nagging question flashed repeatedly in my mind. How could we possibly have gotten to this point in America?
Wasn’t this Christian America? The land of the free? How then could the whole world be crashing down around our collective heads?
America had been attacked for the first time ever on her own soil. The distant memory of Pearl Harbor was like a picnic by comparison.
We had no way of suspecting it then, but America was now the latest victim in history’s long chain of false-flag attacks. A false flag is an attack blamed on an innocent 3rd party to provoke or justify a war. Only a year or two before, the Neo-Conservative Project For the New American Century had incredibly called for just such a “Pearl Harbor” type event.
All of us were shell-shocked into a rare sense of national unity and resolve. All ideological differences melted away. At least for a week or so. We were primed to be led. Led by the nose. “Lock and load” was the prevailing attitude.
So what’s this have to do with homeschool programs and getting your high school and college diploma on the same day to avoid student loan debt?
To interpret this report and the mission of this website, you must grasp the story of almost 20 years in American history since that tragic event and how our education system has shaped that history. Follow me as we explore the havoc inflicted by our peculiar system of education, and what each of us can do on a personal level to “rebuild the ancient ruins.”
At any point along the way, you may click to [Save $100,000 College Tuition] and claim the incentive package for homeschool programs and creative options of paying for college. These will get you started on the journey toward educational excellence. Underlined phrases throughout this report are directly related to the impact of American education on our history, especially our geo-political history.
It happened fast. And It unfolded in true Hegelian form. First, it was “problem.” Then our shocked “reaction.” And sure enough, next came the inevitable “solution.” Thesis, Synthesis, Antithesis.
President Bush and his top advisers with their polished presentation were there in our living room to point the way. The new American way of perpetual and preemptive warfare. Here was proof-positive that Saddam Hussein of Iraq was harboring the terrorists and worse, he was only months away from developing a nuclear bomb. The blurry, satellite images flickered on our TV screens.
We were solemnly warned that once that fateful milestone was reached, every terrorist in the world would be carrying a mini-nuke in their brief case.
Moreover, it was intimated that Al Queda “sleeper cells,” based in Iraq, were waiting to unleash further attacks. Only a week after 9/11 an Anthrax scare in the U.S. Postal service was blamed on Iraq to strengthen the case.
However, that accusation was quickly dropped when the Anthrax strain was traced to the U.S. Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in Ft. Detrick, Maryland. That was an interesting clue to the perpetrators of 9/11, but few of us connected the dots in the heat of the crisis.
The conclusion remained obvious to all. America is under attack and we must go to war; we must go to war NOW to neutralize this dark, shadowy assailant.
Like many, I’d been tracking the gathering storm clouds for some time. Because Christians have been the largest minority in the nation during the critical years, we lay the blame largely at the feet of the American church. Formerly there was hope – in the 1980s and 90s. Hope that the mobilizing army of evangelical Christians could turn the tide. Somewhere America had lost her way and like many I was convinced that the problem lay in American Christians’ long hiatus from political action.
It was over 50 years since Christians had been driven from the field by their embarrassing public relations defeat in the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925. Now the 1980 candidacy of conservative Ronald Reagan offered fresh hope for a new and reformed America. I caught the Reagan bug and ended up as a political pollster, helping to develop campaign strategy for hundreds of state legislative races over a 30 year period.
But a funny thing happened on the way to political Nirvana. I noticed that many of the fresh new Christian faces I’d helped elect weren’t voting that much different than their liberal counterparts, especially on issues of taxation and spending. Sure, they were pro-life and voted accordingly, but in too many cases that was about it. While Christians were intent on putting out social and economic brushfires, they did very little to articulate and promote the Biblical cultural and economic alternatives.
The idea that the Bible contained any kind of coherent economic theory never seemed to cross their mind. The very suggestion that the Bible must be consulted to determine how government should be spending its money was an assault on state sovereignty.
Such limits on state spending power were a bit over the top even for the Christians. Apparently that came too close to the line defining the strict separation of church and state – an Enlightenment principle drilled into our heads from day one.
Without a thorough grounding in classical Christian economics, Christians easily became unwitting Keynesians. This is the economic equivalent of pulling a rabbit out of the hat. Great for short-term entertainment value, but the theory of spending your way out of debt is lethal for the rabbit, long-term.
The impact on the states has been profound, particularly in the cities. California teeters on the verge of bankruptcy and disintegration. The “Progressive” policies of former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and now Democrat Jerry Brown kindled the economic fire and poured on the fuel.
Scroll one state north into Oregon where Governor Kate Brown is at the helm, and the same fiscal insanity afflicts the government. The debt and obligation for the Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) in Oregon is unsustainable, but untouchable. Attempts to bring it under control have been struck down by the liberal Supreme Court.
Nationwide, the economic picture is not much brighter. Education is promoted as the panacea for getting ahead in the rat race. Consequently, student loan debt has skyrocketed and the challenge of paying for college has become all but impossible for the average family. When families demand government assistance, college tuition increases accordingly to absorb the public largess.
A June 17, 2010 New America article by Linda J. Bilmes and Daniel Moynihan summarizes the crisis at the state level.“While the federal deficit captures the news headlines, there is a deep and pervasive fiscal crisis in state finance.
This crisis is largely a result of the Great Recession, which has caused the steepest decline in state tax receipts on record. It is also a structural issue, resulting from unfunded retirement plans that are beginning to come due. With state spending accounting for one eighth of US GDP, this crisis has serious implications for economic recovery, for jobs and for the credit markets, where states and municipalities have borrowed nearly $3 trillion.”
Now, almost 20 years later the conditions that produced 9/11 are still with us. If anything, they’re much worse. After 18 years of non-stop war, no less than 500,000 civilians – mostly Christians — lie slaughtered in Iraq and Syria by American bombs, bullets and proxy armies. American made “DU” (Depleted Uranium) rounds of expended ammunition contaminate the landscape with radioactivity, virtually forever. And with some 5 or 6 trillion dollars blown into the sand of the Middle East desert, are we any closer to winning the war on terror than we were in September, 2001? Do you feel safe?
On September 18, 2018 Former Congressman Ron Paul declared that “the evidence is very clear that the U.S. has aligned itself with Al-Queda in Syria.” Talk about mission-creep. As Dr. Paul explains, America is not only losing the war on terror, somewhere along the line she actually switched sides and is now supporting the terrorists. If your son or daughter has joined the U.S. military, you and they need to be very clear about the fact that they are voluntarily supporting the terrorists in the Middle-East and Afghanistan.
Troops who sided with tyranny in WWII were not allowed to use the excuse at the Nuremberg Trials that “we were just following orders.” U.S. troops guarding the poppy fields in Afghanistan to support the CIA drug running operation cannot use the excuse that “we were just following orders.”
There’ve been a few brave soldiers who came to that realization. Some resisted and ended up dead, under suspicious circumstances. One such is former NFL football hero, Pat Tillman who was painted by Army propagandists as a patriotic soldier who died for his country.
Tillman’s brother tells another story: “Somehow the more soldiers that die, the more legitimate the illegal invasion becomes. Somehow American leadership, whose only credit is lying to its people and illegally invading a nation, has been allowed to steal the courage, virtue and honor of its soldiers on the ground. Somehow those afraid to fight an illegal invasion decades ago are allowed to send soldiers to die for an illegal invasion they started”. (https://deadspin.com/stop-using-pat-tillman-1818689197)
Both of his parents spoke out against the propagandizing of Tillman, and decried how his selflessness and bravery were cynically used by the Bush administration:“The administration clearly was using this case for its own political reasons,” said the father, Patrick Tillman.“This cover-up started within minutes of Pat’s death, and it started at high levels. This is not something that (lower-ranking) people in the field do,”
The terrorists now enjoying U.S. support are the same that allegedly brought down the Twin Towers. The same terrorists who butchered no less than 500,000 Christians in Syria. Where is the voice of Christian protest? There is none because the corporate media perpetuates the myth that U.S. forces are fighting terror in the Middle-East. From a logical standpoint, it’s propaganda and from a Biblical standpoint it’s a lie. Take your pick.
Corporate media? How many realize that MSNBC stands for MicroSoftNBC? Big business owns the news. This was the unintended consequence of the 1996 Telecommunications Act. According to the FCC, “The goal of this new law is to let anyone enter any communications business — to let any communications business compete in any market against any other.” The result has been consolidation of ownership into a handful of Telecomm giants, who seek merger with more profitable subsidiaries unrelated to communications.
America teaming up with terrorists is illogical to put it mildly. And from a Biblical standpoint immoral. It makes a bit more sense when we consider General Wesley Clark’s short interview (YouTube) with “RT”, explaining how the State Department had determined “to take down 7 nations in the next 5 years” right after 9/11.
But, how many American Christians are even aware of this? Sadly, very few because of the above mentioned media mind control and educational malpractice? Dr. Paul goes on to reveal how Iranian bitterness and mistrust toward America can be traced to CIA overthrow of their elected government in 1953. Here again, ignorance of history makes Christians vulnerable to the hypnotic drums now beating for pre-emptive war against Iran.
Famed Marine General Smedley Butler, once cynically remarked, “War is a racket.” If this is true, how can American Christians willingly participate. There’s no question that a major incentive for enlistment in the military is the lure of free or reduced college education. He confessed to being the Enforcer for corporate interests all over Central America under the guise of “protecting America’s national security.
You can easily eliminate this temptation and student loan debt by getting your BS/BA and high school homeschool diploma at the same time. Paying for college has never been easier using the steps outlined in the Appendix of this report.
Given American’s extreme national debt, would it not make common sense to let the nations of the Middle East fight their own wars, even if we do provide
scaled-back aid to some. Moreover, a substantial portion of Al-Queda fighters in Syria are ruthless, Wahabist Sunni, trained in Saudi Arabia. That’s the country with which our President blithely concluded the largest arms deal in history, on the rationale that it would “create jobs.” Such arms shipments would be a prime target for the Nautilus in Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” But American students no longer study the classics.
Evangelicals remain mute or blissfully ignorant of these geo-political moves. Or offer the feeble excuse, that he’s just playing “3-D chess.” The knee-jerk reaction is, “somebody’s finally standing up to those Jihad terrorists!” But as Congressman Ron Paul points out, American Neo-Cons never pause to consider what CIA meddling has done over the years to provoke the terrorist blow-back.
American “Exceptionalism” appears as intolerable arrogance in the eyes of the world. Most view us as “the Ugly American, ” as documented in a book of the same name. What other nation besides the U.S. has bombed an average of one country a year for the past 30 years or more, starting with the hospital city of Dresden in WW II? People who have suffered for years under American bombing and military dominance are sooner or later going to strike back. Under the Monroe Doctrine we supposedly won’t tolerate any other military presence in the Western Hemisphere, but we sure don’t hesitate to effect “regime change” anywhere else in the world. Again, logical inconsistency and unbiblical aggression.
How many military bases are American taxpayers supporting on foreign soil – 700? 1,000? Nobody knows. The Roman Empire fell because the cost of defending its vast frontier could not be sustained. The first legions were pulled out of Britain, some 400 years after Julius Caesar’s successful invasion across the English Channel in 54 B.C. Then the long thin line of troops along the Rhine-Danube frontier gave way to the barbarians. It was curtains for Rome when Alaric arrived in 410 A.D.
How long can America sustain the massive deficit, that makes the Roman Empire look like a penny pinching tightwad? Here again, we have ignorance or neglect of basic Biblical principles of history and economics that are quite literally destroying our nation.
Didn’t our first President have something to say about avoiding foreign entanglements in his Farewell Address? But 77% of American high school students can’t give you the name of America’s first President. 86% don’t know who wrote the Declaration of Independence. 73% can’t name the two parts of the U.S. Congress. 39% percent can’t name the ocean on the east coast of the United States.
Those are 4 of the 10 questions on a test for U.S. citizenship. Candidates must answer 6 of 10 correctly for a passing grade. That means only 3% of American-born high school students can pass a basic citizenship test. The concept of a Biblical form of government is lost on them, let alone a Constitutional form of government.
But that’s OK. One thing American students are good at is computerized war games. War is a skill in high demand these days. And we all know that getting a high-paying job is the ultimate end of education, right? Who pays better than Uncle Sam?
It was then I realized that American young people have virtually no sense of history. More space is devoted to Marilyn Monroe in some public school textbooks than to George Washington. Christians in particular have failed to take advantage of online Christian schools and economical, homeschool programs to counter the problem.
Ironically, most American Christians shun Christian education in high school homeschool, supplemented by online Christian schools. They cling stubbornly to the myth that their children are evangelists in the secular public schools. They are in fact the evangelees. The evidence is overwhelming. No cliché is laden with more truth. Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.
In less than 20 years the nation that has just squandered 5 trillion dollars on a war with Iraq that everyone agrees was based on a lie, is being manipulated into yet another war with Iran on the exact same pretense. So we left Iraq and Libya in ruins, but hey, in war you’ve got to expect a little collateral damage. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Hillary showed that terrorist Quadafi a thing or two in Libya.“We came, we saw, he died,” as she so delicately put it. Never mind that he lived in a tent, was sharing his wealth with surrounding nations, was co-operating with the West, and his people loved him.
But he had the audacity to set up his own independent bank – the unforgivable sin. Far better to have Al-Qaida in charge of the new, thriving slave market in Libya, wouldn’t you say?
Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright assured Leslie Stahl in a May 2, 2012 interview that 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was “worth it.” That was shortly after she accepted the Medal of Freedom award from President Barack Obama. If the total cost was $5 trillion, that pencils out to $10,000,000 per dead Iraqi child. A real bargain for a globalist.
Certainly a medal well earned – congrats Madeleine. As usual, the enemy must first be demonized using mass mind control techniques to grease the skids for another false flag attack. Once again we are confidently assured that Iran is a terrorist state and only months away from getting a nuclear weapon. Sound familiar? This, in spite of the fact that Iran has been under strict international monitoring and regulation for 3 years. In logical terms this is called an ad hominem attack and/or appeal to emotion. In Biblical terms it’s called a lie. Take your pick.
Never mind that the accusing nation itself has something like 300 nuclear weapons concealed beneath the sands and is the only nation in the world that refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Yet this nation is portrayed as a tiny defenseless victim.
In logical terms this is called a red herring, an informal logical fallacy that misleads or distracts from an important or relevant issue. In Biblical terms it’s called hypocrisy. Take your pick.
And again we have vague rumors of Iranian “sleeper cells” in every state of the union. This is an Appeal to Anonymous Authority? In Biblical terms it’s gossip. Take your pick.
So what does our President do? He proceeds to break America’s commitment to the multi-nation, Iranian Nuclear Treaty declaring that “it’s not a good deal.” It’s allegedly “not a good deal” because it requires the return of Iran’s money previously impounded by the United States. The President frames it as though we are required to pay Iran to disarm.
And so America inches ever closer to another pre-emptive, 18-year war with yet another Middle East nation. That’s the informal logical Fallacy of Definition, where you change the meaning of a word (“deal”) in the middle of the argument. In Biblical terms it’s called Theft. Take your pick.
Every dollar spent on one of America’s far-flung foreign battle fields is a dollar that can’t be spent defending her own borders. Or a dollar that Christians don’t have to enroll their children in online Christian schools.
All it takes is another false flag, perhaps the recent U.S. kidnapping of a Chinese, telecomm CEO, because she’s allegedly supporting terror in Iran. This is borderline insanity.
The President promised repeatedly to get us out of the Middle East after 18 years of counter-productive warfare. He had every opportunity to do so in April, 2018, when the war was winding down. He could have won the Nobel Peace Prize for ending the longest war in American history.
But he presumably was taken in by yet another “Assad is gassing his own people” false-flag event. Three times in the previous 5 years ISIS had accused Assad of “gassing his own people.” Three times subsequent investigation had proven Assad innocent. Everybody who was paying attention agreed.
In logical terms that’s called setting up a straw man and attempting to shoot him down (in this case literally). In Biblical terms it’s called bearing false witness against your neighbor. Take your pick.
But the President used the 4th false accusation as a pretext to launch another 100+ cruise missiles into Syria, killing more civilians and destroying more property. He had done the same thing almost exactly a year earlier. Republicans cheered. Democrats cheered. Christians cheered. Logic and truth wept. International law be damned.
Lo and behold, within a month Assad was proven to be innocent once again. Actually, the day after the alleged attack a renowned British war correspondent, Robert Fisk, asked civilians living in the immediate vicinity of the medical facility about the gas attack.“What gas attack?” was the universal response. Want moreproof? Had there been a Saran gas attack there would have been nobody in the neighborhood left alive to interview.
Oh well. At least Trump made a statement against “the animal Assad.” So it’s a war crime under international law – so what? In logical terms that’s called Appeal to Authority or Appeal to the Stick. In Biblical terms it’s called Trespassing or Assault & Battery. Might Makes Right. Take your pick.
No Congressional declaration of war. The very reason our founding fathers wrote that restriction into the Constitution was to restrain an aggressive executive. I hate to bring it up, but how is this any different from breaking into a home and spraying it with machine gun fire? Difference of scale?
I wonder how Americans would react if some nation with whom we’re not at war launched 100 cruise missiles onto the East Coast?
At any rate, it’s becoming clear that the President is pursuing the same policy of permanent and pre-emptive warfare practiced by his predecessor Democrat Obama and Republican Bush before him.
There’s no end to the excuses offered to keep us on the battlefield. We can’t withdraw until “x” is accomplished, otherwise “y” will happen. There’s always another “x,” and “y” always turns into “z.”
Americans seem like stumbling sleep walkers when it comes to evaluating the barrage of informal fallacies that arrive repackaged with every new campaign season or every new false-flag attack. Logic, propaganda analysis and critical thinking were long since expunged from the public school curriculum.
Editor’s Note: On 12/19/18 Donald Trump defied his advisors to announce withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, claiming defeat of ISIS. It sounds like good news, but…. Will the U.S. Navy armada remain off the Syrian coast? And what about the 5300+ U.S. troops that remain in Iraq? The Pentagon and UN report at least 14,000 ISIS terrorists remain in Syria with a comparable number in Iraq. Trump had every opportunity to pull out in April, 2018, but launched 100+ cruise missiles illegally to re-open hostilities.Kurdish terrorists are persecuting Christians in the Northeast oil region. Claiming victory over ISIS is an Error of Fact, given overwhelming evidence that the CIA has nurtured, funded, trained and supplied ISIS from the beginning. The reduction of ISIS in Syria — and consequent relief of Christians – was the work of Assad and Putin, NOT the United States. U.S. troops embedded with the Kurds Northeast of the Euphrates have kept Turkey at bay. But NATO ally Turkey recently told Trump they’re about to attack the Kurds, regardless. Only 3 months ago Trump announced the U.S. would remain until Iran left Syria. Iran is still there. Will Trump replace U.S. troops with “private contractors;” i.e.,mercenaries? Watch out for the Bait & Switch proposal of Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater/Xe and brother of Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos. The President reportedly likes the idea.Time will tell.Throughout his campaign,Trump spoke repeatedly of confiscating Middle-East oil fields for “our great oil companies.” In a 2015 interview with George Stehanopoulas he made no bones about it, “I am looking to take the oil. I want to take the oil. I want the oil and I’ve been saying that for a long time.” Has he really abandoned this campaign promise? Have U.S.-Israeli war drums beating against Iran really been silenced or is this an Argument by Selective Observation? Time will tell.
The Christian student in the government schools is subtly or not so subtly taught the normalcy of Sharia law, homosexuality, insubordination and wicca. They’re taught to despise the generally Christian culture that their parents may have grown up in and take for granted the counter-culture. School administration typically places supreme value on head-count in order to collect the federal bounty. Thus, they tend to wink at bullying, depravity and even violence until it’s too late.
Thus, the Christian child is taught subtly by example to despise authority. They’re conditioned to view human life as cheap, not only in the classroom, but outside the classroom immersion in violent video games and the worst the internet has to offer. Bad company ruins good morals.
What about lost opportunity cost? Christian parents don’t appreciate or fail to grasp what their children are missing when they spend 8 hours a day in the secular humanist, school environment. Negative video game personas replace wholesome classical and Biblical heroes.
Most Christians have never been trained to be constantly on guard to test various truth claims and arguments against these time-tested models of informal fallacy. More important, against the Bible. As a result they’re easily manipulated by the corporate media because they’ve rejected solid homeschool programs and classical Christian education in favor of allegedly “free” government education.
The existence of an apostatizing malignancy in the U.S. bureaucracy has been clearly exposed to anybody paying even remote attention. Even the most flippant conspiracy-theory scofflaws have a hard time denying it. The intrusive surveillance network constructed secretly over many years by the intelligence agencies has been exposed to the world. This is a malicious fifth-column lurking in the shadows of the American body-politic .
It is a law unto itself. It’s been revealed by whistleblowers like William Benny, Edward Snowden, and Julian Assange, who are branded traitors by the deep state.That’s how a nation with unrivaled technical skill – that led the information revolution — can be so easily deceived and misled. Too many Christians still can’t, or won’t make the connection – that this same shadowy, fifth-column is in control of American foreign policy and pushing the agenda of the global elite.
It’s not a Democrat vs Republican thing. It’s a control vs freedom thing. It’s an elite vs “everybody else” thing. They incessantly foment local infighting: black vs white, male vs. female, Muslim vs. Christian, Russia vs. the West.
There’s a growing awareness that these same elites very literally own the corporate media – the “fake news,” as it’s now called. It’s been exposed, but its power to manipulate public opinion with Big Brother, newspeak is still very potent.
American public education has done nothing to fortify Christians against this sophisticated propaganda machine. Teaching critical thinking skills and propaganda analysis is virtually non-existent, even in the online Christian schools.
On the contrary, American Christians have been CON-ditioned by the public schools to function as loyal cogs in the military-industrial machine. The schools exist to train obedient servants for the state. The Progressive education model was adopted from Germany in the 1800s. That’s a story in itself.
When the global elite say, “go to war” American Christians are the first to volunteer. When the international banksters say, “jump,” American Christians ask “how high?” on the way up, easily manipulated by a species of jingoistic patriotism.
It’s the same kind of faux-patriotism that Israel clung to before the Babylonian captivity in spite of Jeremiah’s warnings. My country, right or wrong.
As Ron Paul has noted, in May of 2018, the Israeli Prime Minister again appeared on American television with what looked and sounded like the very same presentation he made back in 2001 against Iraq. He simply dusted it off, changed a few names and recycled it to promote yet another war, this time with Iran. “From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?” (James 4:1).
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Maybe we should let them fight their own wars with the $5 billion of foreign aid America provides every year. Failure to learn the lessons of history, leads inevitably to vain – and all too often fatal — repetition.
Gradually it dawned on me that the ultimate answer was not political. At the root, it’s a problem of the spirit – and of education – education that takes full advantage of Christian homeschool curriculum, classical Christian homeschool programs and college alternatives.
In 1983 Reagan’s National Commission on Educational Reform concluded “the educational foundations of our society are presently being eroded by a rising tide of mediocrity that threatens our very future as a Nation and a people” and “If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war.”
That was 35 years ago. Has American education improved since then? Has paying for college become any easier or student loan debt declined?
That’s when I first opened the digital doors at King’s Way Classical Academy, almost a year to the day before the 9/11 attacks. It was the world’s first online, classical Christian academy, utilizing, top classical Christian education learning strategies.
I’m happy to say it’s become a high school homeschool second to none. My motivation was, “we simply have to get to these high school kids with comprehensive Biblical education before they get in positions where they start doing the damage.” More about that later.
As we have seen, most American Christian young people have lost virtually all sense of Biblical history, government, economics, critical thinking skills and much more. Their parents have rejected solid homeschool programs, classical Christian education, and high school homeschool. Instead they’ve embraced the secular, government education system in defiance of the Great Commission.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,” but these Christian parents have parked their kids in a “no-wisdom zone” and pretended it was education. Rather than take advantage of exceptional homeschool programs or online Christian schools, no less than 85% of Christian families abandon their children to the godless, government education system.
On top of that, they stumble all over themselves to assume a massive student loan debt to pay inflated college tuition at an anti-Christian university. They rarely consider viable college alternatives.
But all of these things pale in significance to their utter abandonment of the Church’s ultimate mission, as commanded by Jesus Christ. We are faced with one of the great ironies of history.
How can a nation founded mostly by Christians on Biblical values be so blatantly disobedient to our Lord’s Great Commission? It was Jesus’ last command to His 12 disciples, found in Matthew 28: 18-20:
“All power on heaven and earth has been given to Me. Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations,
1. baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and
2. teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you.
And lo I am with you always even unto the end of the age.”
– includes leading individuals to salvation, based not on their own good works, which the Bible declares to be as “filthy rags” in the sight of God (Is. 64:6). “For the wages of sin is death” and Hell, “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom 5:8).
Even one infraction is enough to sentence each of us to Hell in the sight of the Holy God, but all is forgiven if we believe that Christ alone paid that penalty for us on the cross. There follows a single, point-in-time decision in which the person cries out for mercy, “for whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Rom. 10:13).
– is obviously referring to follow-up instruction for men and nations. What’s the first clue? For all those rebellious Christian fathers who casually consign their children to the pagan, government school system – the schools where Jesus Christ is outlawed — it’s the words “teaching them….” Teaching them what? Jesus was obviously referring to the Biblical worldview of the Old Testament, the only Scripture available at the time.
God has delegated to Christian parents – father’s specifically (Eph 6:4) – the responsibility to“bring your children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” He purposely did NOT delegate that responsibility to the secular humanist, government, education system. For fathers to relinquish this responsibility to teach their children from a Biblical worldview, is no better than Adam failing to protect Eve from Satan and the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. It’s pathetic.
It’s unconscionable, GROSS negligence and direct disobedience to the command of God. It is willfully perpetuating the sin of Adam. Christians who surrender that responsibility to the Molech state, are defying the Triune God. They violate His trust, and sacrifice their children to a false god in exchange for “a mess of humanist pottage.” This is inexcusable in light of the classical Christian education and college alternatives so economically available for you online.
Free humanist education in exchange for their child’s soul. A real bargain. Christian fathers have sold-out the Kingdom of God by surrendering their children to enemy worldview training. Barna Christian Research reports that by the time they graduate from public high school a majority of Christian students have left the church and the faith. Their blood is on the hands of their negligent fathers.
The secular government school is not teaching children anything remotely resembling a Biblical worldview perspective. Contrary to popular opinion, these schools are far from neutral. Would you send your child to a Muslim school and expect no negative impact on his mind and spirit? How about a Hindu school?
According to the Supreme Court, Secular Humanism is the godless religion of the government schools. It’s a religion utterly hostile to Christianity. How is that any different than a Muslim or Hindi school? At least Islam honors Christ as a prophet. Why do you expose your child’s soul to this spiritual danger? Can a man take fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned?
The specter of Christian parents enrolling their children in the government education system has been described as the ultimate form of child abuse. Not only are parents placing their children in mortal spiritual danger, they are placing them in ever increasing physical danger. Inexplicably, they shun the extremely affordable, online Christian schools and college alternatives to their own peril.
Every few months we hear of another school shooting rampage. The public school, citizen-disarmament zones have become the most dangerous real estate in America. With the possible exception of the cinema.
Why do they do it? Why do Christian parents persist in open rebellion to the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ? Why do they refuse to disciple their own children, especially when top online Christian schools and homeschool programs are so readily at hand? Why do they assume massive student loan debt for college tuition at the post-secondary level. Why do they pay so handsomely for their own destruction? The best explanation can be found in:
It was Otto von Bismarck who once said, “Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made.” To that dubious pair a third must now be added: namely, public education. Of these three blackguards — sausage, legislation, and public education – the latter may indeed be the blackest. The National Inflation Association figures that college education is the biggest scam in the history of the United States and they’ve produced a one-hour video to document their accusation.
And because the child is the father of the man we must look to public education – primary and secondary — as the father of the scam. The term “public education” is a misnomer. It is a euphemism for “government education,” which conjures a decidedly less flattering image. As well it might given its shadowy origins. Those origins may be traced directly to none other than Karl Marx himself, the father of Communism.
This is stuff they don’t want you to know. Stuff that’ll keep you awake at night.
Karl Marx promoted almost any means, especially violent revolution, to introduce socialist dictatorship. However, when it came to developed nations like the United States, he advocated gradual introduction of ten political goals. Among others, those goals included abolition of private property and inheritance along with a graduated income tax. But notice this. The tenth and crowning plank in the Communist Manifesto is “Free education for all children in government schools….”
Imagine that. An institution as “all-American” as baseball and apple pie – the public common school — is a key ingredient in the Communist agenda. In spite of its hypocritical claims, government education is anything but neutral. Government education always has an axe to grind. It will promote state aims, state goals, and state agendas, whether those things line up with Biblical and parental goals, or not. If you know anything about the history of Communism in the 20th Century it is more often “not.”
The curriculum replaces the classics with government propaganda. According to the American Principles Project, “They de-emphasize the study of classic literature in favor of reading so-called ‘informational texts,’ such as government documents, court opinions, and technical manuals.” Over half the reading materials in grades 6-12 are to consist of informational texts rather than classical literature. Historical texts like the Gettysburg Address are to be presented to students without context or explanation.
Because God is outlawed from the state curriculum, it means that every course, every lesson, indeed the entire institution is laced with humanist presuppositions and propaganda. Chief among these is the blasphemous assertion that God is irrelevant to “real-life”, allegedly neutral education.
God commands fathers of Christian children to “…bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Eph. 6:4). This is the path of true blessing for you and your children. The very first verse in the Psalter says it all, “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers!” Too many Christian fathers think they know better than God. They excuse their child abuse with the rationalization that their son or daughter will be a “witness” in the public school. Pipe-dream alert. Even if their child knows the “Four Spiritual Laws” backward and forward, inside and out, they will not be the evangelist in the public schools. They will be the evangelee! Their children will graduate with a non-Christian perspective on everything. Their worldview will be humanistic. Their understanding of everything — history, law, economics, science and everything else — will have a humanistic bent. You may think this is not happening to your child, but it has been documented in over 30 years of worldview testing by the Nehemiah Institute. https://www.worldviewalliance.com/ExecutiveSummary.php
Follow that link and notice the consistent downward trend in Biblical worldview scores recorded by Christian children in both Christian schools and government schools. Only Christian children who are consciously taught in a method that integrates Biblical principles and law will graduate with a Biblical worldview.
You cannot evade the basic principle laid down by Jesus that the student will become like the teacher (Mt. 10:25). A spirit of anti-Christ pervades the government schools, where God is outlawed and Christ is despised. It all boils down to one simple question. Do you want your child to become like anti-Christ or like Christ? Here’s a sample of what you get with Anti-Christ and the allegedly neutral math component of the Common Core curriculum in your local government school:
You can find questions relating to serial killers, food shortages, population control, drug lords, infectious diseases, oil spills, and loneliness. You can also find dozens of questions that do not even remotely relate to mathematics at all but instead pushes collectivism, communal thinking and consensus. Samples:
A serial killer is stalking the residents of Gloomy Falls, Mass., population 937. Every year the population diminishes by 4.5%. How many residents are left after the killer’s three-year rampage? HOW WILL YOU STOP HIM?
Strapped for cash, you decide to borrow money from a local crime lord. This turns out to be yet another instance of poor judgment on your part. At 22% interest per year, how much will you owe on a loan of %5,000 after one year? What about after three years?
The Bible presents a radically different perspective, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Pr. 1:7). In other words, if your system of education excludes God, you can’t even get through kindergarten in terms of true understanding. A person may be “educated,” but according to the Bible they’re an educated fool.
This is the ultimate form of child abuse: Christian families abandoning the hearts and minds of their children to a Godless education system. It is a fearful thing. Martin Luther said it’s akin to setting your child’s feet on the path to Hell.
“I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.” (Martin Luther).
Christian families who turn their children over to the government school system are gambling with their child’s soul. Moreover, they are committing cultural suicide. Imagine the children of Israel conquering the promised land and then turning their children over to “Canaanite U” for their education. That’s how absurd it is for Christians to abandon the education of their children to the state schools. This action is directly responsible for the terrible disintegration we are now witnessing in American culture. This is how nation’s die.
Almost everybody acknowledges that there are problems with the government schools, but most are quick to add, “of course our school is different.” To back this up they’ll say something like, “Our school is way out in the country, “ or “we’ve got mostly Christian teachers.”
Never mind the fact, that those Christian teachers have been trained in the government teacher-training institutions. Never mind that they are required to teach from a non-Christian curriculum and text books. Never mind that they are forbidden by law to integrate Biblical truth.
Under New York State’s Common Core requirements, excerpts from the book, Black Swan Green, are required reading for ninth graders. Black Swan Green features a 13-year-old boy as the narrator who graphically describes his father’s genitals and a sex act. It has been suggested that because all of the excerpts do not contain explicitly sexual material some students would read only the required portions of the book. Others scoff at the idea that once the books are in a student’s possession that the sexually graphic material would be skipped over.
And never mind the fact that the government schools are funded by unBiblical confiscation of your neighbor’s property. Frederick Bastiat complained of this very thing in his classic treatise on “The Law” in 1850:
“You say: ‘There are persons who lack education,’ and you turn to the law. In this matter of education, the law has only two alternatives: It can permit this transaction of teaching-and-learning to operate freely and without the use of force, or it can force human wills in this matter by taking from some of them enough to pay the teachers who are appointed by government to instruct others, without charge. But in this second case, the law commits legal plunder by violating liberty and property” (The Law, p. 31).
But then of course there is always the rationale that without free government education, poor kids won’t be able to get an education. Again we turn to Bastiat: “It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must be philanthropic…it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation…This is the seductive lure of socialism” (The Law, p. 25).
If you’re sick and tired of what socialism is dishing out, maybe it’s time to consider the alternative: obedience to God’s provision in the abundance of homeschool programs, classical Christian schools and college alternatives. That’s where King’s Way Classical Academy comes in. King’s Way is the “Ivy League” of secondary online Christian schools.

ASpecial Report by Dan Smithwick of the Nehemiah Institute on the tragic results of public education on America’s youth and culture. This report is entitled “One Generation To Go And Then The End.”
Smithwick has tested the Biblical worldview of thousands of Christian kids in public schools, Christian schools, home schools and classical Christian schools for almost 30 years. His PEERS test measures a student’s Biblical worldview by their beliefs about Politics, Economics, Education, Religion, and Social issues.
King’s Way is truly unique among online schools. Dan Smithwick, author of the PEERS test, had this to say about the worldview training in the King’s Way homeschool curriculum:
“Testing and training are the two indispensable tools for rebuilding a Biblical worldview. A homeschool curriculum of generalized worldview training is essential. To accomplish that I usually recommend aspects of the classical approach, even for schools that have not fully adopted the classical model. Students educated by the classical, Christian approach consistently score highest on my PEERS worldview test. The classical/Christian books and courses offered by King’s Way Classical Academy Online are unique in the field. Their Biblical analysis of the Classics is the best I’ve seen. Students emerge from their home school programs with a solid Christian worldview.”
Your choice of any one of the following free courses.
Your child will love these courses related to the rudiments of the classical Christian education.
Biblical integration for every subject in the homeschool curriculum is the hallmark.
Sadly, about 90% of Christian schools and curriculum do not integrate the Bible into their courses.
Typically, the schools tack on a few Bible courses, but the rest of the curriculum is, in effect, humanist or “baptized humanism.”
This shows up in Biblical Worldview testing of the Nehemiah Institute, in which the average Christian school student in America is graduating with a “Socialist” worldview.
But these courses are the real deal. Credit may be applied at King’s Way or transferred to any other school of your choice.
There’s even a BONUS within the BONUS. Every one of these free courses has a term project requirement: Stuff They Didn’t Teach You In School.
Stuff like “How Not to Die,” “How to Invest in Real Estate,” “How to Set up a Family/Infinite Bank,” and much more.
This is the ultimate in practical education for real life. Don’t miss out.

The good news is, you can. You can do it right now. I’ll teach your child how to get their BS/BA degree from an accredited college on the same day they get their high school diploma. Do you like that idea? Does that sound impossible? Just try us. I know you’ll be amazed.
If you could spend $1,000 and get $100,000 in return, would you consider that to be a pretty good investment. That’s what you’re getting when you enroll at King’s Way today. And you don’t even have to come up with the entire $1,000 right now.
Don’t forget – With King’s Way Classical Academy you’re getting Ivy League quality education at a Black Friday price tag. It’s where you don’t have to choose between low cost and high quality. King’s Way is restoring the lost tools of learning to save a dying culture.

How can we do this, you’re probably asking? I’ll give you the details later, but simply put, King’s Way is the “Model T” of the classical Christian education market. Remember how Henry Ford invented the Model T Ford, then cut his prices so low that all of his factory workers in Detroit and around the country could afford the new “horseless carriage.”
He covered his expenses on the volume and economies of scale. That’s exactly what we’re doing with the King’s Way homeschool curriculum to restore quality education and the best classical Christian homeschool curriculum to virtually everybody who wants it in America. You can kiss the corrupt, dangerous and ineffective government education system goodbye forever.
The easiest way of paying for college is to simply eliminate the cost of tuition altogether.
Just think what that’ll do to your peace of mind, not to mention your checking account. What will your family do with the $100,000 savings? Invest in some real estate for your child’s future? A family vacation to see the world? Emergency medical fund?
All these things are called “lost opportunity cost” when you go the traditional route to a college education. You lose all these other benefits when you pour that money down the drain of a failed education system. A secular system shackled by extravagant college tuition costs and a lifetime of student loan debt.
But now all of it can be yours and more.
Did I mention the Education-At-Sea cruise? You can get high school and college credit for spending a portion of one of your summer vacations in the balmy Mediterranean.

The humanists have had their chance for over 200 years and they’ve blown it – big time. Don’t give them another dime of your hard-earned money to waste on bureaucratic frills. Stop feeding the BEAST! Let’s starve the BEAST together. Let’s do it because God commands it.

Do it now. Believe me, you won’t be sorry.
So what’s the catch? The catch is King’s Way is not for everybody. If you’re OK with any of these conditions, then King’s Way Classical Academy is definitely NOT for you. Ask yourself, am I still willing to…..
• risk my child’s physical safety in the public school disarmament zone
• expose my child to the rampant sexual promiscuity in the government schools
• disobey God’s command to give my child a Christian worldview education
• put up with an education system that has brought America to the brink of God’s judgment
• pay inflated prices at other online schools attempting to imitate King’s Way quality
• waste $100,000 on 4 years at a socialist, humanist propaganda pit, they still have the audacity to call “institution of higher learning.”
If you’re willing to tolerate any of these assaults, then King’s Way is probably not for you. You’ll be better served to look somewhere else. Our guarantee (below) still applies, but you’ll save yourself time and trouble by not going through the motions.
On the other hand, if you’re part of the new breed of Christian families no longer willing to put up with mediocrity, then you’ll feel right at home here. If you care about the spiritual and mental health of your children by all means jump on board. If you’re shocked by the growing threat of a 2nd Civil War in America, you need this Biblical worldview training you can’t get anywhere else.
But again, you must act now.
Even though we’ve made every effort to cut our tuition to the lowest possible level, we know that $1,000 is still a lot of money for a lot of people. Especially, in these hard times, $1,000 is not easy to come by.
And I respect the fact that you’re willing to place your confidence in King’s Way and our dedicated staff to the extent of entrusting a portion of your child’s education to our care. That is a sacred trust that we do not take lightly.
