Homeschooling Protects Children from Violence and Marxism


The February mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida prompted many parents to consider homeschooling. This is hardly surprising, as the misnamed federal “Gun-Free Schools” law leaves schoolchildren defenseless against mass shooters. Removing one’s children from government schools seems a rational response to school shootings.

School shootings are not the only form of violence causing more parents to consider homeschooling. Many potential homeschooling parents are concerned about the failure of school administrators to effectively protect children from bullying by other students.

Of course many parents choose homeschooling as a means of protecting their children from federal education “reforms” such as Common Core. Other parents are motivated by a desire to protect their children from the cultural Marxism that has infiltrated many schools.


  1. They act like bullying and mass shootings are the only bad things that can happen. Bullying is so broadly defined that it happens to every child every day. And mass shooting happen so infrequently that you child is more likely to be struck by lightning.

    Every day thousands of children are molested. Thousands more are assaulted. thousands per year are killed in traffic going to school. Thousands raped by other students. And most parents and school administrators have been perfectly willing to view those as acceptable losses to achieve the greater goods of "socializing" and free babysitting. If you willingly put your kids in public school, you volunteered them for all of this. Mass shootings are insignificant by comparison.


    1. Thanks.
