Trump to Review 'Radical Left Indoctrination' of Tax Exempt Universities

WASHINGTON: "Too many Universities and School Systems are about Radical Left Indoctrination, not Education," Trump said. "Therefore, I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!"

The Trump administration has spotlighted education in the last week, calling for schools to reopen for the next school year despite the risk of spreading the coronavirus, and also suggesting he'd attempt to revoke funding if they do not.

REMNANT COMMENT: Way to go, Mr. President. Cut 'em off. You'll be doing the world a favor. 

By the way, homeschoolers are going back to school in the Fall for sure, as are many of the small Catholic colleges and universities such Christendom and FUS. 

One of the great byproducts of the Covid initiative is the inadvertent empowerment of home schooling – the feeder system for small Christian colleges and universities nationwide. (Good luck, President Biden, outlawing a parent’s right to educate his children at home after the global Corona fiasco.)

Nearly two million American kids were already being homeschooled before Covid landed, due to the fact that increasing numbers of parents had become well aware of how miserable public education has become--both academically and socially--with drugs, sex, rank progressivism and school shootings creating an absolutely unworkable learning environment.

After Covid, home education went viral and mainstream,  with both Google and YouTube launching major new services to help parents teach their children at home (Teach From Home and Learn@Home, neither of which I, as a homeschool dad, would recommend.)  

They say God writes straight with crooked lines. Well, homeschooling is here to stay, and for this we should all thank God. Given the cultural rot setting in everywhere today, as well as the incredible antifamily bias galloping through nearly every aspect of American life, if your Catholic priest does not support homeschooling -- Find. Another. Priest!
