GRAY, Tenn., Aug. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — A minute spent reading the headlines or watching the news is all it takes to see that public schools across the country are in disarray. From mask guideline confusion to indoctrinating lesson plans, the topics of education and the coming school year are constantly in the news. But it’s not often good news for students.
"Remember when school was about reading, writing, and arithmetic? Today, schools are polluting instruction with their obsessive focus on gender identity, critical race theory, and the politics of COVID," said Gena Suarez, publisher of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. "It doesn’t have to be that way. Homeschooling allows emphasis on actual education while avoiding the chaos and hysteria of social agendas placed on children. Now that’s good news for students—and for parents!"
Support is available for anyone considering teaching their children at home. Homeschool parents have learned the value of simply focusing on education and are happy to share their knowledge and experience with others contemplating keeping their kids—and their studies—at home.
