Even Christian teachers are forced to leave God out of the teaching of children, deeming Him non-existent or—at best—irrelevant to the indoctrination that occurs in the nation's government schools.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge (Psalm 111:10, Proverbs 1:7, 9:10), and yet we allow our children to be taught without even the slightest acknowledgement that God is the reason 2+2=4; that C-A-T spells cat; that history occurred the way it did; that Barak Obama is President-elect; that the Platypus doesn't fit neatly into one classification.
"Education is the most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism. What can theistic Sunday School, meeting for an hour once a week, do to stem the tide of a five day program of humanistic teaching?"
—Charles Francis Potter, signer of The Humanist Manifesto, a foundational document of today's public school system.
"You can't make Socialists out of individualists—children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where everyone is interdependent."
—John Dewey, American psychologist, humanist, philosopher, and educational reformer; known as the Father of Modern education; signer of The Humanist Manifesto
