Sam Sorbo: “We don’t have a school crisis but a parenting crisis”

By Michael Hernandez

NEWBURY PARK—“We don’t have a school crisis but a parenting crisis” said Home School advocate Sam Sorbo  during Sunday’s Godspeak   “Fireside Chat”  aired at 7 pm.

“It’s astonishing to me that parents are out of sorts.  They are really struggling.  Parents don’t know what to do with their children.  If you went to high school; you were educated and you (still) feel incompetent to teach a third grader?  You weren’t educated.  You were schooled.

“We are asleep in the matrix.  Our own education K-12 was worthless.  We don’t know how to teach.  Yet, I am going to send my child into that system that made me feel incompetent?  It is stunning—a stunning abdication.

“I was one of those parents.   My kids went to school.  But schools are not doing their job so I have to do the job.  They are in a system that despises them.   The schools are teaching our children only group identity.  This is child abuse.

“Your job is to model learning, so your child can learn how to learn.  Both of you can learn together.  You should have no fear of learning.  Show your children how to get it done.”

In Thousand Oaks there is an ever increasing number of Parents that may not totally agree with Ms. Sorbo. We do have a high percentage of parents both willing to take on the mantel of teacher or pay for private school.

Where I may agree is that public education is a failure at educating but extremely good at indoctrinating.
