The Role of
the State in Educating Children
"The state's role and authority to
foster the well-being of children is a subsidiary one, meaning that
it is secondary to the role of the parents, and serves the function
of helping parents in their educational task, not usurping or
undermining the parents' educational efforts ... coercion ... should
be restricted as much as possible in order to avoid the usurpation
of parental authority" [source].
"Schools no longer make policies
based on the principle that parents control the education of their
child. Indeed, parents often lose control of their child's
upbringing once the youth walks into his or her school. Once exposed
to our educational establishment, the values of many children vary
dramatically from those of their parents ... schools have been
transformed from community-oriented centers where traditional moral,
civic, and scholarly values were nurtured into carefully guarded
precincts for the counter-cultural transformation of young and
adolescent children" [source].
Instilling Collectivist Values into School Children
"Under the auspices of the
United Nations, education will 'challenge us all to adopt new behaviors
and practices', and will focus in holistic, rather than subject-based
learning, and an emphasis on values rather than subject matter. ...
Under values clarification, students are taught there is no absolute
right or wrong, which inevitably leads to the destruction of morality,
the family unit, and our free society. For example,
young students are now taught how to contact child protective services
and other authorities if they believe their parents are abusing them.
... on the surface this sounds admirable, but in practice it has led to
many cases where justifiable discipline in the home has led to court
ordered separation of children from their families"
[Ron Taylor, Agenda 21: Expose of the United Nationís
Sustainability Development Initiative, pp.40-41].
"Why would the ... government
implement values clarification training? And, why would UNESCO and
the Agenda 21 program want to redefine the belief systems of
children around the world? In my opinion there is only one reason:
By destroying the moral fabric of a society they can instill their
values and beliefs in their place. ... the new model of education
will teach students the values of collectivism and loyalty to the
state over family and individual. All I can say is, thank God my
kids were homeschooled"
[Ron Taylor, Agenda 21: Expose of the United Nationís
Sustainability Development Initiative, p.42].
Officers' and Collusion of Teachers With SSs
"An increasing number of children in
our files are being removed from school and are home educated,
sometimes after a fairly minor brush with 'protection' services,
because the educational system (including nursery education) is now
seen as part of the surveillance process, which can be influenced by
the whims, prejudices and occasional hostility of individual
teachers. Another child was removed from nursery school because the
teacher there was questioned by social workers about the parents and
is no longer trusted, so it is at home" [source].
"[A mother] was in the kitchen
preparing packed lunches for her two children when her 11-year-old
daughter kept on interrupting. The mother tapped her daughter on the
arm with a roll of clingfilm and told her to go upstairs. The
following day the girl casually mentioned to a teacher that her
mother had 'hit' her. This was reported to social workers who took
her into care, on the grounds that the mother had hit her with an
"[D]uring a discussion
about signing off his homework diary, Henry [aged 12] told a teacher
that his parents were abroad. When asked who was looking after him,
he said he didn't really know
[EMcD: his parents had arranged with long-time friends to stay with
their son while they needed to be away on business]
- a comment which was relayed to the school's 'safeguarding'
officer, whose job it is to decide if concerns about a child's
welfare are serious enough to contact social services. ... Recalls
[Henry's mother]: 'I received a phone call from the staff member ...
asking me who was looking after Henry. I told them and asked if they
needed numbers, and she said they didn't. I asked if there was a
problem and she said no.' ... [But the] school had informed Cumbria
Police and child protection agencies" [source].
University of Central Lancashire
"Based on FOI requests to 114 local councils, [the
University's study] showed that, since Baby P, there has been a huge
increase in the number of cases where social workers have intervened
because of 'concerns' raised by teachers, health visitors, doctors
or members of the public that something suspicious might be going
on, even if this may be only a small bruise on an arm or a neighbour
overhearing a mother and father shouting at each other. Thanks to
such 'referrals' ... social workers investigated no fewer than one
in five of all children born in 2009/10. But ... many of the
cases I have investigated over the years were set off like this,
leading to tragic outcome where social workers successfully based
their case almost entirely on those initial ill-founded suspicions,
without having to produce any further evidence to support them" [source].
Perverse Sex 'Education'
"What exactly, does one
tell a five year old about sex?" / "That
it's how mummy and daddy make babies. Just how parents managed for
generations" / "Stay away from left wing
teachers?" / "[T]his is classic Frankfurt
School Cultural Marxism, Lukacs did this in Hungary" /
"Innocence is mocked, that's the problem. Innocence should be a
virtue" / "We all know there is an agenda
here. Certain people in government want to make sure that the first
time children learn anything about sex it won't just be about male+female, and it won't just be about 'making babies' - which is
where most parents start. And that's why parents are not to be
trusted with sex education" / "[Y]ou have to
understand that in LibLabCon Britain, children don't belong to their
parents. Children belong to the state, just like in the Soviet Union
and other places east of the Vistula. The parents belong to the
state too, so it's their duty to work and be tax-slaves to pay for
all those vanity projects our rulers fund from that tax, and to have
no time to give to their children, so that those children can be
indoctrinated by the state into being the compliant little
tax-slaves of the future"
"These sick people even tout the excuse that more sex education would
have helped empower the Rotherham sex abuse victims" /
"Isn't there a contradiction here? Social workers and police in
Rotherham and elsewhere said they failed to act against men sexually
exploiting under age girls because *the girls were making a lifestyle
choice*, which implies they believed the girls were fully aware of what
happens when sex takes place. So which is it? Were the girls not
educated about sex and therefore in need of ever more sex education in
school, or were they well aware in which case sex education would have
been redundant?" [comments at
"But the sex education won't be what most normal parents would
understand as sex education, it will focus on 'normalising' minority
sexual practices and aim to confuse juveniles on their own sexuality
(all in the name of fairness) so adding another tool to the liberal
progressive box of tricks to undermine and marginalise the desire
for normal stable dual sex relationships. Indoctrinate them young
and they become putty in the hands of the Fabians - but for the
children's own good of course, let's not forget to accompany this
social engineering exercise with the stock claim the elite use to
excuse the evil they perpetrate"
"'Ministers are saying
that parents are crying out for better sex education with concerns
that children are finding out about sex through pornography and
other forms of media'. I could understand parents 'crying out' for
better Algebra or Chemistry education if the present curriculum was
inferior, but sex education? Is sex so complicated that parents
can't teach their children the appropriate information without help
from a school teacher? People's infantile reliance on the government
is more than a little disturbing" / "Yes,
but 'parents are crying out for *better* sex education', that's the
point. I suspect that if parents are 'crying out for ' anything at
all it is an end to the politically correct way of teaching that
passes for sex education in schools at the moment" /
"Schools have no business teaching anything about sex, other than
basic human biology. Parents are the ones who should be teaching
sexual morality; ... it shouldn't be political ... Parents need to
do their job, not abdicate their parental responsibility to
strangers" / "Increasingly parents are expecting
schools to do everything that was once the responsibility of
parents, and they are being encouraged in this by governments"
"We all know where this
is going don't we? First they will bring this in. After 5 years,
they will then start 'debating' how our children are soooo much more
sexually aware, that the age of consent must come down 'as the right
thing to do'. As time goes on it ill be lowered incrementally until
it suits our perverted leadership's desires. As well as 'other
interested groups' whose culture WE must integrate with. Of course
it will never be a problem for our ruling elite ... until it happens
to them" [comments at
Absence From School
"A junior school in
Nottinghamshire sent a letter to all parents informing them that if
their child were late for school on three occasions during a school
year the school would report the parent to social services for
neglect. At a meeting to discuss this policy, about a dozen of the
parents present raised outraged objection to this. The rest thought
it was a jolly good idea. So yes, there is so much more of this
nasty, ugly, chipping away at reason and freedom. And how much of it
never sees the light of day beyond the small group it immediately
affects?" / "Then perhaps [the parents] should retaliate. If any
teacher is late starting a lesson on three occasions during a school
year, or not present at all, then they should be reported to social
services for neglect and abandonment of children in their care.
Two-way street" / "Now that would be interesting, but I suspect the
officials are immune from censure" / "All those agreeing with it
imagine their kids are never, ever late and never, ever get
distracted on the way. They think it's only for the truants and it
will not affect them, but three late arrivals in a year is well
below the normal rates for real children. They don't think that kids
who are off sick will be counted as 'late' when they don't show up.
Nasty surprises on the way..."
"Government indoctrination is essential to the maintenance of a
compliant slave state. By interrupting the scientifically-designed
process of brainwashing, you are subverting the state and
potentially opening the possibility that non-standard worker units
will infect the working population in years to come with ideas of
independence, personal liberty, freedom of choice, and other
disruptive concepts. This cannot be tolerated"
"This is a very dangerous thing to do in socialist Britain. I expect
the child catchers, I mean, 'health visitors' will shortly be paying
a visit. Truly, with forced adoptions, secret courts, compulsory
academic education (unsuitable for so many), you are merely suckling
cows and emotional teddy-bears for the children of the Fatherland.
They are not your children and haven't been for some time"

"Such inflexibility is
typical of a dictatorship, not a democracy" / "as soon
as you register your child to the state, they become their property"
/ "These ridiculous bully boy tactics are becoming common in
the UK, while real crime goes unpunished" / "This is a
great example of the totalitarian state bullying parents and a
reason why everyone should remove their children from the socialist
incubators they call schools and teach their children at home.
Alternatively, reclaim control of schools from the nasty state"
/ "If 'Big Brother' says something, you must obey.
Otherwise the thought police will be on to you" / "And
as everyone pontificates that Fathers should bring up their children
the state chastises them at every turn" / "Welcome to
communist Britain" / "Half the reason these kids are
behaving poorly is because of being forced in to these desolate
institutions and never getting to spend quality time with their
families" / "The education system is already in a state,
that's how governments like it. It's easier to control an uneducated
population" / "This is not about the council protecting
the children's (so called) education, it is about showing hard
working, law abiding tax payers who is boss" / "If they
were going on a sabbatical to Pakistan I doubt there would be a
problem" [comments at:
"[This] shows just how
far we have come in allowing the establishment to interfere in out
lives, one week off from school will not destroy a child's life"
/ "State education exists within its own self-important ivory
tower, believing all its own propaganda, convinced of its own
righteousness, and signally failing to realise its role has changed
from a means of bettering poorer children, to an instrument of an
increasingly Orwellian state. ... churn[ing] out befuddled 20
somethings with a mickey mouse degree, a 30k debt and very little
idea of how to get through the rest of their lives. This latest
incursion, by the courts no less, into a family taking a holiday is
an absolute outrage! It's no surprise to me that the two families
I've met who've chosen to home educate their children have some of
the most well adjusted, loving and respectful (and bright) kinds
I've had the pleasure of meeting" / "The sole aim of the
education system is to churn out drones that conform. Its
purpose is to stamp out individuality. It would be too dangerous for
the government if we were allowed to think for ourselves and do what
we believe is best for our kids" / "Whose kids are they,
their parents' or the Department of Education's? ... The children
would have benefitted far more from a week in Greece than yet
another week in HM training and brainwashing camps. [Real] Education
has nothing to do with dogmatic adherence to the National
Curriculum, which is all about dog training and control"
"The 6-year-old boy who
was suspended from school because his parents refused to fill his
lunch box with tofu, lettuce, carrot sticks and wheaten bread as per
the school's dictatorial 'healthy eating' policy, preferring to give
him a sausage roll, or scotch egg and mini cheddars or other snack
type foods, how now been expelled from his school ... The school
said: 'If we are faced with a situation where a parent threatens to
send a pupil into school with insufficient food to sustain them
throughout the school day, it is a risk we simply cannot afford to
happen'. This is the usual demonising, twisted doublespeak we
have some to expect from the control freaks who are determined to
take control of the upbringing of our children. This issue was not
insufficient food, rather the parents did not conform to the kind of
food the school decided should be provided. ... Welcome to the
glorious fruits of the quiet, slowburn cultural marxist revolution
in action" [source].
