The problem with public schools is the same problem with all America. Liberals. In fact, America’s church suffers a severe liberal infestation too. When I say liberals I mean people who misunderstand the nature of God and are disconnected from reality. The root of liberalism is ignorance.
To uproot the ignorance of liberals, let’s overhaul the American public education system. First, American students need to learn about God. Second, studying history begins an education about reality that life experience will continue.
Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, you cannot teach kids about God in school. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!”
Well, okay, THANKS for proving my POINT! Early American students were taught to read English from the Bible in public schools before the ink on the constitution even dried. You liberals would know that factoid if you studied history. But since you’ve decided to be purposefully ignorant, God sent you the whole way, and you’re delusional now. So delusional, you imagine that the phrase, “separation of church and state,” appears in the Constitution.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)
All wisdom ultimately originates as a revelation from God. Even if the ungodly posses some knowledge about God’s creation, it’s only because the peace afforded by Providence allows them leisure time to gain it. The pursuit of wisdom therefore demands humility.
A practical benefit of humility is the ability to admit when you are wrong. But liberals lack that virtue because they have exchanged the word of God for lies, a.k.a. Science. (Romans 1:25) Notice the first step in science is to accept the premise there is no God. That sends you on the opposite path of wisdom.
If educators were intellectually honest, they would get on the P.A. system and tell their students that every single thing they have been forcefully teaching about nutrition is wrong. Not just wrong. Dead wrong.
Fat is a nutrient. Salt is a nutrient. Cholesterol is a nutrient.
They can’t do that because in rejecting God, they’ve propped science up as his substitute. They can’t admit that science is wrong about the most basic function of our animal nature: what to eat.
In the liberal educator’s rabid devotion to science, they’ve dedicated more class time and resources to that subject at the expense of history lessons. This amplifies the problem. Kids never get a chance to learn about God or root themselves in reality. The few history lessons they enjoy are edited to reflect liberal ideals rather than reality. That seals our kids’ doom to become spoiled like expired Lunchables in the dumpster behind Stop&Shop.
Consider that if students studied about ancient Rome they might learn that soldiers of the Empire were paid in salt. That’s where the word salary comes from. Nowadays, you can’t teach that because then some kid would ask why Michelle Obama makes them eat low sodium lunches.
Some of yous right now think that this is a cutesy little rant. You don’t understand the severity of the problem. Let’s take a hypothetical journey to Northampton, Massachusetts. Let’s get all the students from kid-garden through high school together and ask them two things.
How many people know who Rosa Parks is? Raise your hand.
How many people know who Jonathan Edwards is? Raise your hand.
Whose name do more kids recognize? Is there any doubt it’s Rosa Parks? Yet she only deserves a footnote on the pages of American history. But in the same town where Jonathan Edwards began his ministry, I doubt that few kids would even recognize his name. Except for college-bound high school juniors who read the opening to “Sinners in the Hand of All Mighty God,” in American literature class but only then as a tedious chore and curiosity of “wow, have times changed?”
Yes. Times have changed. But not for the better. Let’s go down to Plymouth now. (hypothetically) Let’s ask the students the same two questions, but let’s replace Jonathan Edwards with Myles Standish.
Sure, kids will recognize his name from his large, ominous state park, but how many know the significance of Mr. Standish. He lead Plymouth Colony’s militia. Who did they fight against? American Indians. So, POOF, there goes the whole notion that Indians were peace-loving noble savages. And after a thoughtful student asks himself “what’s different between the Pilgrims and us today,” he’d begin to understand why we still need a well regulated militia and the right to bear arms. POOF there goes the false virtue of gun control.
The Problem with Public Schools
Liberals, who for a practical reason reject history on the grounds that kids just memorize meaningless dates and names, encourage kids to instead study science. Yet most of these kids lack the mental strength to process the mathematics needed to truly understand science, thus they are left to memorize meaningless factoids about science and names of scientists.
This last bit of irony explains how Liberal educators build kids into what I call Potemkin Villages of knowledge. They are like trained monkeys meant to rattle off vapid factoids on standardized tests, but about the concepts behind them, they have no clue. Their brains collect knowledge, but they have no wisdom to direct their heart because their education paid no heed to the Lord God Almighty.
It’s nice that little Skylar knows the difference between a colloid mixture and an aqueous solution. That’s nice that little Skylar knows he can’t strain salt out of salt water. Now let me ask your little Skylar if we can take one man and pair him with another man and call marriage. Skylar, does God approve of gay marriage? Did you learn in history class that Massachusetts used to have anti-sodomy laws on the books?
Some of you youngsters missed that last paragraph because you were too busy looking up Potemkin Village on wikipedia.
The only way to see if I’m right about Northampton kids is to actually go there and ask em. Who’s with me? facebook.com/feedingjimmy
