    Im going to be blunt.
    The ideal Nordic is self-educated. :

    Just teach your child the basics, reading , grammar, the 9 planets etc
    The rest the child should do on its own, with you assisting or providing anything that is needed in the field of study taken a fascination for or chosen by the child.

    If the child is a true Nordic, it will have the fire of curiousity within, it will succeed in learning on its own.

    If not... As harsh as it may sound, Thanks for making another stupid/ignorant/closed-minded human on Earth.

    Make gottmenschen, not pawns.

    (No offense to those of you who, forced to by society and material laws, went to or completed school)
    The third shall be the final and decisive one.

    He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool - shun him.
    He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child - teach him.
    He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep - wake him.
    He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise - follow him.

    In any case, never let school interfere with your education.

Home educated children tend to have more experience of relating to people who are both older and younger than themselves. In addition, they have had the particular benefit of learning through conversation and close personal contact.

    I find it extremely hard to agree with this claim. Seems bizarre or is it me missing the bigger picture??
    I think it has its merits, but I don't think the issue is black and white. I believe that the educational experience that a child attains from homeschooling also advances the parent-child bond; I would think that this would have a positive effect on the attitude and sense of personal worth that the child gains from the educational experience.

    In fact, I don't think that sending the little ones to the public school guarantees them that they will have positive social lives. With so many distant parents + the lack of personal attention children receive + for the unlucky ones, bullies, I don't think that the public school environment is entirely conducive to building spirit and self-worth within children. Maybe for some; as I said, I don't think the issue is black and white. But, in my own case, there is a lot of black here; I can relate to this. I was not particularly violent, but I had run-ins with bullies and felt quite out of place with many of my fellow classmates.

    Anyway, I don't think that school is a great place for socialization. When you spend 95% of the time listening to some unenthused teacher blab about something that seems irrelevant and 5% being lucky to catch a friend in the lunch room or the halls, the time spent on social well-being is considerably low. And for some, that 5% might be appended to the 95%; I remember days where the time from 8AM to 3PM where I was half asleep, only to have to wake up at the school bell and my parent's telling me that I have to slave over that menial task called homework.

    It is sad, even if it isn't frequent, that those who experience great angst against their school community use it as a reason to kill. The teenagers who went on a killing spree at Columbine had the signs of being socially inept.

    The concern, thus, I have, is what the public school system is handing our children in terms of culture, when the school system is not the optimal place for social growth.

    That's why I think homeschooling is a tempting option. In my opinion, I think that the clubs and organizations are better places for socializing for children then schools. Their role is different than the public school, because their role is to help introduce children to other children.

    during the -fifties and -sixties,
    sleep-learning was very popular.

    this involved a stack of long-playing records
    on the spindle of your record-player
    and letting them play as you slept.

    those companies that advocated the reverberation theory of memory,
    suggested allowing one side of the record
    to play repeatedly, through the night.

    recognising this technique from huxley's distopic novel,
    i added it to my training regimen
    (i was determined to be as good as the character
    whose adventures my grand-father read to me
    ).

    in my experience, the reverberation method was more affective
    (most memory consolidation does happen during sleep).

    before that, my mother and i spent a lot of time
    using flash-cards to memorise many subjects.

    when i was planning my son's education,
    i was glad i had purchased a roberts 770x-ss reel-to-reel tape-player/recorder,
    instead of the flashier 770,
    because the x-ss had a "long play" function
    which extended playing-time to four hours
    and would auto-reverse to provide four more.

    that meant i had two tracks for eight hours
    of reciting the letters of the alphabet,
    the three hundred high-frequency words,
    the five hundred primary words built of phonograms
    and the eight hundred words from the scholastic aptitude test
    (their meanings and use in a sentence).

    the other tape was equally tedious to record:
    reciting the numerals, the addition-tables
    ("one plus one equals two,
    one plus two equals three..."),
    subtraction-, multiplication-, and division-tables.

    the third tape consisted of the math formulae
    ("the area of a circle...,
    the volume of a cone...").

    with the auto-reverse function
    on the reel-to-reel,
    the tape would play - non-stop - for days
    (reversing play-direction every four hours
    and returning to the beginning
    every eight hours).

    playing in the backgroud, constantly,
    i found my memory refreshed
    as my son was building new memories.

    In Austria, for homeschooling ,it is a tedious act until the authorities allow it to you, and it is not often granted.

    A friend was home-schooled until she was 12, and, Hel, the affair of getting her into 6th grade at public school rather than 1st was a hard battle. eyes:
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Some Encouraging Education Numbers

    by Al Benson Jr.

    In the past couple years two Christian denominations of conservative persuasion have had initiatives introduced into their annual conventions urging their denominational support for asking members to pull their children out of the government schools. Although both initiatives failed, it was quite encouraging that they were even introduced and that there seems to be some support within these denominations for such an action.

    Of course, in both cases, the denominational hierarchy was opposed to these resolutions, preferring to pursue the politically correct route and to support government schools along with the liberals and socialists.

    A recent Associated Press article, while noting this, gave some interesting numbers regarding the educational situation in the country today. The article noted: "Overall, public schools are in no danger of withering away. The latest federal figures, from 2005, show their total K-12 enrollment at 48.4 million, compared with 6.3 million in private schools--most of them religious." The AP article noted that the National Center for Education Statistics has observed that private school enrollment seems to be growing at a speedier rate than that of the public schools, a noticible trend since 1989, which is expected to continue through 2014. Why they think it will stop at that point I don't know. But the article also said: "Moreover the private school figures don't include the growing ranks of home-schoolers--there were at least 1.1 million of them in 2003, according to federal figures, and perhaps more than 2 million now, according to home school advocates." If the federal government is willing to admit to 1.1 million home schoolers then you can bet the actual figure is probably in the 2 million range, if not higher.

    That means that, between over 6 million youngsters in private schools, many of which are religious, and somewhere around 2 million more who are being home schooled, this country has somewhere around 8 million youngsters that are not being taught to "think" in government schools. That's one out of every seven young people in this country of school age. A minority to be sure, but a significant minority.

    Now admittedly, all those private schools might not be everything we could hope for, and even some home schooling efforts are not all we might wish them to be, but, for all the faults, this is a trend that is moving in the right direction. As long as sinful human beings are involved, there will be faults in anything that is attempted, but, looking at the government school system, with all its abberations, can you blame people for voting with their feet and seceding from that system in great numbers? I surely can't.

    The fact that there are around 8 million kids out there that are not, for the most part, being programmed in those government indoctrination centers we refer to as public schools has to give the government school bureaucracy something to think about--it may even give some of them nightmares--Lord willing!

    Some government school bureaucrats bemoan the fact that their leviathan has gained the reputation of being opposed to religion. Now where do you suppose people got that idea? Actually, the government school system is not opposed to religion--many of its strongest supporters are not opposed to religion and are, in fact, religious in their own way. They are secular humanists, and humanism has been defined as a religion. So they are not against religion as such--they are just opposed to biblical Christianity. After all, if you go back and study the beginnings of the public school movement in this country you will note that it was founded by Unitarians in New England that has apostatised from the churches of their fathers. They saw in statist schools an institution that would work to counteract the effects of church schools. The public school movement was founded, at its inception, as a reaction against Christian education.

    I guess you might be able to call the early public school supporters reactionaries.

    And in the South, after the War of Northern Aggression, the government schools were brought into the South and there established as an integral part of Northern "reconstruction." Judging by the number of these institutions in the South and by the support given them by Southern folks who have not been taught their history, you could conclude that "reconstruction" must still be alive and well in the South, as well as in the rest of the country now.

    But, the fact that one in every seven youngsters is presently being educated by other means than those government indoctrination centers is certainly reason for hope. Some young people out there are being taught to think, and to question, and in coming decades, the questions they ask, if they ask them loudly enough, might prove an embarrassment to our ruling elite. We may not see much move in this direction in our lifetime, but in the generations to come, who knows? Some plant and others water, and God gives the increase.
