In an interview with Glenn Beck, Congressman Rand Paul discusses the imperativeness of our education system. It is easy to convince others that there is a problem with our current system. Simple truths about the structure of our government or the founding document of the Constitution are not known. What about home schooling? In his book, The School Revolution, Ron Paul proposes many feasible options to the broken education system that is currently being experienced in America. For those parents who are pursuing home schooling for their children they are experiencing the objections of “why don’t you just let the professionals do that”, “you don’t have a certificate”, or, “does that mean that I have to know everything?” Ron Paul shared that 20-25% of children need to be raised in home schools. When Ron Paul was interviewed on MSNBC, his views on home schooling were promptly objected. “If you want to get 20% being home schooled that’s going to mean a vast drop in the number of women in the workforce because it is women who are doing the home schooling. A lot of women can’t afford to give up their jobs. A lot of families can’t afford that.” This wasn’t even the point that Ron Paul was expressing at the time, but it highlights the urgency of where we are as a nation. Will we choose our careers over our children and continue on the road that we are experiencing in our nation? This is the very question that Glenn asks, “If we let one more generation go, if we let this generation, my generation, who has kids now, if we let this generation go without really instilling these values will we get freedom back?” This is the question that we must ask ourselves. Do we want to continue on the same road where we are expecting different results?
God has called us to disciple nations and raise them up. Education is a major part of that. In order for us to have healthy leaders of tomorrow, we must first have healthy sons and daughters. This only happens when we begin to pour into their lives with Kingdom values, teachings, and wisdom. Allow hope to rise at the potential of what can take place in our education and school systems across the nation, and so much more.
