Who really has the best interests of children at heart: parents or the state? A growing chorus of voices insists that children don’t belong to parents. “Children,” these voices say, “belong to the community. For democracy to survive, the government must require that children be taught approved values such as ‘tolerance’.” Some of these voices say that children should learn only in government-approved schools or from government-approved standards and curriculums. These misguided voices prompt both state and federal lawmakers to hand over the keys to the kids. They dictate what children eat, what kinds of doctors they can and can’t see, and what they are taught! Skirmishes are fought over this issue even now. Are you prepared? In this session, Mike addresses these serious issues. Tying together events both current and historic, Mike provides the perspective needed to fully comprehend this timeless struggle for control.
