Back to School: What to Expect

CAUTION – Tell your kids not to believe everything they’re going to read and hear.

What do your kids, and you, expect as they head back to school? Seeing their friends again? Learning something cool? Are they wondering what their new teacher will be like? Probably all those things.

But are you expecting something more? Perhaps a true representation of our great American history? Truth in their science courses that discuss earth’s origin and climate change? If you do, I applaud your optimism. The chances of those things happening if your kids are attending a public school range from slim to none.

I say that, even though I am a basically optimistic person, because I’ve studied what’s been happening, and is continuing to happen. If you haven’t read my book Who’s Got Dibs on Your Kids? yet (I sometimes call it Dibs), this might be a good time to do that. In my opinion, it is vital for you to prepare your kids ahead of time for what they most likely will be taught in school. Teach them yourself what the truth is.

I’m bringing this up now because I just read a quote of Vladimir Lenin that chilled me to the bone. He wrote:

We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth. We can and we must write in a language that sows among the masses hatred, scorn, and the like towards those who disagree with us. (Emphasis added.)

Lenin was born in 1870 and died in 1924, but we can see his hateful plans still alive and well in our own country today. Does that sound over the top? Let’s take a look at it.

Don’t believe everything in the textbooks

Trickery and deceit were definitely employed in Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth, which taught our children that our world was doomed if we didn’t drastically reduce our carbon footprint immediately. Add to that the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) which are probably in use in your kid’s school. (See page 45 of Dibs) Those standards require climate change instruction. One of the high school course descriptions reads: “Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.”

Please note this does not ask the student to determine if Earth systems are being modified by human activity, but how.

If you haven’t noticed the acceptance, possibly encouragement, of law-breaking on college campuses, you need to take a little time off from your daily chores. Look at some video clips of students preventing speakers from conveying their ideas with shouting, physical endangerment, and destruction of private property.

I could cite countless examples of schools withholding and concealing the truth, but to keep it simple, let’s look at just one textbook on American history. The Florida Citizens Alliance has done a great job checking textbooks. One portion from their report on (2015) Modern World History, 9th Grade Teacher Edition, covering the Section on the American Revolution reveals that:

  • The debating between the Federalist and the Anti-Federalists is distorted.
  • The Federalist position was entirely misrepresented.

Signing the Constitution

  • There is no mention of the thirteen colonies declaring their independence as thirteen independent Nation states.
  • There is no mention of our Constitution being a legal document that created the federal government.
  • No mention that the Constitution gave only eighteen very well-defined and very limited powers to the federal government.
  • No mention of the extensive debates that led to the Bill of Rights and particularly why we have a 9th and 10th amendment.
  • The textbook states “colonial leaders eventually recognized the need for a strong national government” which is not true. Our Constitution was carefully crafted to limit federal government powers.

The Florida Citizens Alliance rank this section on American History as having 1) Bias 2) Omission of Fact 3) Half-Truth and 4) Factual Error.

This definitely falls into the withholding and concealing the truth category and, as I said before, is only one small example of how our kids are being misled. How can we expect them to realize how truly exceptional our country is if they are not told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?

Back to Lenin’s statement—he continues: “sows among the masses hatred, scorn, and the like towards those who disagree with us.” Have you heard the words homophobe, xenophobe, Islamophobe, misogynist, racist, sexist? Can you honestly say those words do not sow “hatred, scorn and the like towards those who disagree with us?” How is our culture today different from that espoused by Lenin? Will your kids experience this in school?

These are but a few examples of how some are trying to lead our kids on paths away from truth, patriotism, and God. As a parent you must prepare your kids for being confronted with these realities. Teach them the truth, and that God’s love that endures all things.

Tell me, Mellon, when did we let evil become stronger than us?

Islam and Our U.S. Department of Education

If you thought there really was separation of church and state (which actually never has been a part of our Constitution) that idea can now be dismissed.

My blog-before-last on my website DibsOnYourKids was titled “Islam Indoctrination in Public Schools.” In that I referenced how Islam is being taught in our public schools World History and Social Studies classes. Many complaints have been made about both the textbooks and the curricula. Today I learned it has gone far beyond that.

The United States Department of Education has developed studies for grades four through eight (it was at one time grades five through twelve) called Access Islam. You can view the program yourself at Access Islam . At that website you will find links to nineteen different videos, detailed lesson plans, a timeline of Islam from 560 (Life of Muhammad) to 2006 (Islam in America), a glossary, additional resources, and a page of credits. If you look carefully on the “About” page of credits, you will see under Project Advisors the name Shabbir Mansuri. Mansuri is the man I wrote about in my book Who’s Got Dibs on Your Kids? who was the primary person involved in rewriting world history textbooks to teach Islam.

I’ve placed a video  on my DibsOnYourKids website produced by the Christian Action Network (CAN) that demonstrates portions of the videos that are a part of the Access Islam lesson material.

I highly recommend you go to the Christian Action Network (CAN) page and read their report on Access Islam courses. It says, “Students are taught to learn Islamic scripture, give the meaning of that Islamic verse, and explain how they can use it in their daily lives. . . The Islamic education program, funded by the DOE, is primarily disseminated through PBS LearningMedia and the Educational Broadcasting Corporation. ” Martin Mawyer of that organization said that students are NOT taught that Jesus is Lord, but they DO learn that Allah is God.

Bear in mind that it was developed by the U.S. Department of Education with $174,000 tax dollars, and disseminated through PBS which is supported with tax dollars. I am posting on my Ways to Take Action page some ideas I have for you to help us fight against this indoctrination of our kids in the Islam faith. This is definitely taking them on a path away from God—the true and only God.

God says: “You shall have no other gods before[a] me” (Exodus 20:3).

My blogs previously were located on my website DibsOnYourKids.com but seemed to be getting lost in the shuffle. Therefore, I’ve started this new stand-alone blog that I call “God’s Path for Kids.”  It will contain the same news as the previous blogs The Pipers’ Paths and Standing Firm did, beginning with my first post here on April 15, 2017. You can find all my previous posts back on the other website.
