Indoctrination: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America (2011)
Every Christian parent with a child in a government school should see this [movie] and be forced to confront their unwillingness to do what Scripture requires for the children on loan to them by God. A mass exodus from government schools is the only way to preserve the souls and minds of our children, whether it gets the attention of politicians or not…and it would.
—Cal Thomas, syndicated Columnist and Fox News contributor
Indoctrination is defined as, “to instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., especially to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.” Today, nearly 90% of Christian children attend a public school. Their families have a vested interest in all that happens there. In this critically acclaimed, just-released film, join Scottish filmmaker Colin Gunn, a homeschool father of seven, on the field trip of a lifetime. Driving an old yellow school bus, Colin and family travel across America, asking questions about the origins and social impact of America’s public education system.
If you’re not ready to take a hard look at the true state of public education, you will want to avoid this unflinching and highly controversial documentary. And, if you think you already know all that’s necessary about education in America, think again. That would be a mistake!
Travel with Colin as he asks:
- Who established the American public school system?
- Are my kids physically and morally safe in the schools?
- Are the public schools religiously neutral?
- Should Christians try to be “salt and light” in public schools?
- Can the public school system be fixed or redeemed?
