Even when we lived in the states only one of our children went to a public school and that was for only a very short time. After that they all went to a Christian school. When we moved to Australia we home schooled. Why? The following article may answer that question.
‘Is it true that all stakeholders are created equal? If this is the case, it implies that teachers and parents, government organizations, vendors, and anybody else interested in the education game, have a vested stake in the educational achievements of individual kids.
If that does not make sense to you, you must be living in the past. These days teachers and principals know what is best for their kids.
In reality, the primary stakeholders in student education are the students and their parents.
But do not tell that to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. Instead of receiving a B.S. from Central Connecticut State University and an Ed.D. from the University of Connecticut, he must have secretly gotten his degree from Karl Marx University. He started as a fourth-grade teacher, then worked his way up to the principal, and quickly became the state of Connecticut’s Commissioner of Education. How did he stand out enough to become the U.S. Secretary of Education?
Last week, Cardona said parents and guardians are not the primary stakeholders in their children’s schooling. He accepts that parents are “significant partners,” but that does not mean they get to decide what their children will learn. Instead, instructors should determine the projects, assignments, materials, and subjects that students need to know. If teachers want to include pornography and racialism in their classes, who are you to tell them, they cannot do so. Academic freedom now apparently means that liberal, socialist teachers get to indoctrinate your children with everything from CRT to rap music.’ https://capitalhillnews.com/biden-education-secretary-miguel-cardona-says-you-do-not-get-to-teach-your-kids/
