Clueless Utah Judge is Ignorant of Facts

Get a load of this article at WorldNetDaily.  Seems some opinionated but clueless judge named Scott Johansen says “homeschooling fails 100% of the time.”

Oh?

Fails at what, judge?

If you mean homeschooling fails at indoctrinating youth into endorsing homosexuality as ‘normal’ … and that the Allah of the Koran and the God of the Bible are the ‘same God,’ . . . and that the government knows what’s better for ‘the children’ than do the children’s parents, then yes, judge, homeschooling fails.

Thank God it fails at all that.

But when you look at who’s winning the national spelling bees each year, and which kids are truly more socialized in holding intelligent conversations, and who gets more one-on-one instruction (BY FAR), then you can only say “homeschooled kids.”

How much attention can a teacher give one student? Do the MATH, judge.  If a kid is sitting in a classroom for six hours a day, that’s 360 minutes. But if the class has 25 kids, and if the teacher does nothing but divide his or her time equally among the various students, the MOST one-on-one attention a teacher can give a student is LESS THAN FIFTEEN minutes.

However . . . The average home schooler gets 2.5 hours of individualized instruction each day from the parent-teacher, or 150 minutes.

Think about it judge. The homeschooler gets ten times more one-on-one instruction.

HOMESCHOOLING FAILS?  REALLY JUDGE — READ THE RESEARCH and GET A CLUE:

A study of 7,500 adults who were each homeschooled at least seven years revealed the following:

74% went on to college. . . . Compared to only 46% of the general US population.

71% participate in an ongoing community service activity (e.g., coaching a sports team, volunteering at a school, working with a neighborhood association, etc.), compared to only 37% of U.S. adults of similar ages.

4.2% of the homeschool graduates surveyed consider politics and government too complicated to understand . . . . Compared to 35% of adults in the general US population.

Judge Scott Johansen, your head is full of opinion, but short on facts.  In the military we call that being a penis with ears.

Therefore, we need to change the offical photo of you hanging at the courthouse.

 What is is now: Scott Johansen’s Fake Image  Scott Johansen: Ignorant Judge

What it NEEDS to be: Scott Johansen as he REALLY is - a penis with ears  Scott Johansen: Penis with Ears (and also an ignorant judge)

Police state becomes a reality

To all the naysayers who said, “That will never happen,” guess what? It happened.

So, naysayers, how ignorant do you look now? What lame excuse do you have? How do you weasel out of this?

The answers are “Very,” “None,” and “You can’t.”

When people said “watch out – the government is going to take your kids if you don’t enroll them in public, er, rather, government schools, I mean indoctrination campuses,” you scoffed, even mocked, and said, “that will never happen.”

Ostriches, all of you.

Please consider this: You like chocolate ice cream. Your spouse likes chocolate ice cream. And, your kids, being the sponges that they are, ALSO like chocolate ice cream.

Or maybe you like fast red cars. And your spouse likes fast red cars. Is it so strange that your children ALSO say they like fast red cars?

This is normal. Kids mimick their parents tastes in many things. Example #3: My daddy was a democrat, my grand-daddy was a democrat, and my great-grand-daddy was a democrat. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me. I’m a democrat, too.

Don’t EVEN tell me you’ve never heard this stuff.

So why is it that a judge can say that a homeschooled teenager who expresses the same perspectives as her father is not had the chance to develop her own independent personality — and order her to a psych ward?

Why does it take fifteen police officers to come take her by force from her family?

Less than two months earlier this same family was featured in their local newspaper as being a model family. But – – their government obviously doesn’t feel like will be able to control these kids later on. They forcibly remove their fifteen year-old girl and send her to a psych ward.

And, according to the International Human Rights Group, which has been monitoring this event, the court’s decision said the well-being of the children “can only be achieved by their attendance in the public schools.”

Why not read how this compulsory school attendance affects you directly.

Hey, Ostrich naysayers — does the term ‘police state’ mean anything to you?
