PODCAST: The Brave New World of Sex Education

Written by Jenna Smith

In regard to presenting students with the best alternative to the radical comprehensive sex education taught in government schools, Scott Phelps, Executive Director of Abstinence & Marriage Education Partnership states, “When we maintain a very clear and distinct message from all the noise that they’re hearing in the culture, the message really pops; it stands out and they’re able to hear it and see it very clearly.”

On this edition of Spotlight, Monte Larrick and Phelps compare government schools’ comprehensive sex ed that normalizes and encourages sexual activity and unhealthy behavior to Abstinence & Marriage Education Partnership’s reasoned and positive approach to sex ed that emphasizes the many benefits of abstinence until marriage.… Continue Reading

The Explosive Growth of Homeschooling

Written by Emily Burke

Parents are taking their children’s education into their own hands in record numbers after a disastrously tumultuous school year.

The U.S. Census Bureau’s experimental Household Pulse Survey, which is an online survey recording social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrates a dramatic shift towards homeschooling within the past year and a half. The survey included roughly 22–23 million American households spanning from the spring of 2020 to the fall of 2021.… Continue Reading

Written by Jenna Smith

Welcome back to Spotlight for part two of excerpted remarks from Alex Newman’s presentation at the 2021 IFI Worldview Conference! This week Newman details the the history of America’s progression from home-based, faith-based education to government school indoctrination.

Tyranny in Disguise: Critical Race Theory in America’s Schools is a Threat to Religious Liberty

Written by Jorge Gomez  & Leo Schlueter

Leftist activists are going into overdrive to indoctrinate young minds and infiltrate America’s schools with their “woke” political ideology.

Headlines today are replete with examples of school districts shaping their curricula around Critical Race Theory (CRT)—a dangerous academic concept that teaches that racism is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in our country’s legal systems and policies.

Parents have responded by showing up en masse at local school board meetings, expressing not just slight disapproval of CRT, but strongly repudiating it being taught in the classroom.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Government Schools Were Designed To Fail (Pt. 1)

Written by Jenna Smith

As the school year begins for almost two million public school students in Illinois, this edition of Spotlight is both timely and eye-opening. This week we are featuring remarks from Alex Newman’s, keynote presentation at our 2021 Worldview Conference. Newman addresses government school curricula that prioritize social justice and LGBTQ+ issues, climate change “facts,” gender pseudoscience, and the promotion of pedophilia as more important than educating students in core academic subjects and fostering critical thinking skills.… Continue Reading

The COVID-19 War On Children

Written by Robert Knight

Last October, the District of Columbia passed a law allowing health officials to vaccinate children as young as 11 without their parent’s knowledge or permission. Seriously.

You probably didn’t hear about this. The media avoid covering topics that might arouse the citizenry to reassert their constitutional and parental rights. How about the CDC’s recommendation to mask any child over two years old? Not big news.

Can’t you see newly empowered health police patrolling playgrounds to make sure all toddlers are masked?… Continue Reading

School Children, White Infants Targeted for Woke Propaganda, ‘Porn Literacy’

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

[Last] week “A Message from the Gay Community” was posted on YouTube. It was delivered in song by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus.

Here’s a smattering of the lyrics.

“You think we’re sinful. You think that we’ll corrupt your kids, if our agenda goes unchecked. Funny just this once, you’re correct.  

We’ll convert your children.  It happens bit by bit.  Quietly and subtly, and you will barely notice it.

SPOTLIGHT: Classical Options And Hybrid Education

Written by Benjamin Smith

In this installment of Spotlight, David Smith is joined by Jennifer Burns, founder of Classical Consortium Academy. Jennifer shares how her initial experience with homeschooling and “car-schooling” led her to start H.E.A.R.T. (Homeschool Enrichment Achieved Respectfully Together) at the Village Church of Barrington. As God laid it on her heart to homeschool, He also led her in 2006 to take another step of obedience and found Classical Consortium Academy, a hybrid school that offers in-person instruction several days per week, paired with CCA-directed and parent- administered at-home learning.… Continue Reading

The Mission of a Modern Christian School

Written by Trevor Grant Thomas

A quote that is sometimes mistakenly credited to C.S. Lewis declares, “Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” A clue that this was not uttered by Lewis is that it doesn’t quite capture the truth. As Lewis would well know, an education without values would be quite unlikely to be “useful.” What’s more, virtually all education incorporates some sort of values.… Continue Reading
