Hello! I live in Oregon and I have been into prepping and mainly learning to homestead for the last 6 mo, but our first major "coming out of her" moment was 2 years ago when we pulled our kids out of the public school system to homeschool them. We have also tried private christian school (for preKindergarten for both our girls) and while that was a better option than public school, it wasn't financially feasible to maintain ($6k per year per kid here!) and still had a lot of worldly issues we wanted to avoid.
Admittedly, though I am a lifelong Christ follower, I am new to following Torah and open to learning more. However from my understanding, living sanctified and set apart cannot coexist with putting/leaving my kids to be educated in the public school system. I am not trying to sound snarky or rude, but so many Christians have this attitude that the public school system is "just fine" because they were raised in it and survived, and it always boggles my mind. The public school system now is NOT the same as when we were growing up and I believe it is the number one tool that the enemy uses to indocrinate and teach our children atheism and abortion, not to mention that the majority of hours of your kids' day is spent following role models that are not of God or at the very least not of your choosing. Plus bullying, gender issues, sex education, anti govt teaching, rewriting of history, removing the Bible and the Pledge...I could go on and on.
I understand that homeschooling isn't for everyone, but as followers of Yah I wonder how the decision is made to put your children in the government's education system when you are purposefully withdrawing from society in so many other ways. I would love to see a discussion about this. Even if only from the prepper mindset, having kids home affects so many things positively, as they can then learn the important trades and traditional skills that will be needed around the homestead as well as the academics needed to succeed in life. Academics can be accomplished in only a couple of hours a day and still be so far ahead of their public school peers. Thoughts on coming out of her my people and how that affects schooling?
