Public School For Newborns?

public school for toddlersA total of 15 states currently require children of kindergarten age to attend school – an idea that is controversial enough among many parents.

One state, though, may take that a step further and give the state head of public education authority to create schools for children birth through 4. It’s an offensive and radical idea, and it’s the topic of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio, as we talk to J. Michael Smith, the president of the Home School Legal Defense Association.

The bill in question resides in the Nevada legislature and would allow the Superintendent of Public Instruction to “coordinate educational programs for children from birth through prekindergarten.” It would be voluntary at first, but Smith says that may not last long.

He also tells us:

  • Why the bill is being proposed.
  • How public education for children at an early age harms them behaviorally, psychologically and even physically.
  • Whether he sees a trend nationally for similar bills.
  • How proposals at the federal level could impact parents with young children.

Believe it or not, the Nevada bill isn’t the first such proposal in America. A few years ago, a major U.S. city considered a bill that would have required children as young as 3 to attend school.

No doubt, we’re witnessing a battle of worldviews. Listen as Smith tells us not only why we should be outraged but what we can do to push back!

  1. The guv’mint is getting desperate, and wants to begin the indoctrination process as early as possible.

  2. Just an attempt to remove the child away from the family influence. This child will naturally have less respect for the parents and society as a whole. This spells a problem of acting out and rebellion toward any authority. Out comes the RITALIN and PROZAC.

    Remember, to my knowledge, every child that has been involved in a school shooting has been on these types of drugs. Now we are going to have COMMON CORE at the age of SIX MONTHS. Can you say KARL MARX???

    Effect on the developing brain — The long-term impact of ADD/ADHD medication on the youthful, developing brain is not yet known. Some researchers are concerned that the use of drugs such as Ritalin in children and teens might interfere with normal brain development.

    Heart-related problems — ADD/ADHD stimulant medications have been found to cause sudden death in children and adults with heart conditions. The American Heart Association recommends that all individuals, including children, have a cardiac evaluation prior to starting a stimulant. An electrocardiogram is recommended if the person has a history of heart problems.

    Psychiatric problems — Stimulants for ADD/ADHD can trigger or exacerbate symptoms of hostility, aggression, anxiety, depression, and paranoia. People with a personal or family history of suicide, depression, or bipolar disorder are at a particularly high risk, and should be carefully monitored when taking stimulants.

    Potential for abuse — Stimulant abuse is a growing problem, particularly among teens and young adults. College students take them for a boost when cramming for exams or pulling all-nighters. Others abuse stimulant meds for their weight-loss properties. If your child is taking stimulants, make sure he or she isn’t sharing the pills or selling them.

    I shudder to think that a self respecting person could allow this type of treatment for little people they profess to love.

  3. Idiocracy, except that it won’t be human evoluton that dumbs down the public…..

    It’s amazing how some movies (and there have been a few) have managed to predict stuff we’d never even consider possible.

  4. Very damaging idea. Up til age 3 to 5 a child must bond with their parents especially the mother. We already know there are lots of troubles when children can not bond. It affects them adversely for the rest of their lives. Then there is the issue of breast feeding. Of course a child that does not get breast fed is much more likely to have health issues, beginning with allergies, than one who is breast fed. If child is taken away from the mother at birth, then that also removes the choice to breast feed. They want to do this to start earlier programing of the young minds. That and unhealthy kids means more spent on drugs.
