Classroom Terror In 2021: Don’t Let Your Child Be Next
How many more stories of student abuse, at the hands of school personnel, have to occur before more parents take action? We cannot continue to live as if the fairytale of justice and equality in education exists. If we pay attention to what’s happening in the U.S. and abroad right now, it's clear to see why it’s best to keep our children away from certain individuals. We must stop leaving our children with teachers and staff who are willing to miseducate and violate them. We must be willing to go the extra mile to keep our kiddos safe, properly educated, and ready for the real world.

If you still haven’t decided whether teaching your child at home is the right choice for you, the following news headlines of real incidents that occurred in the first quarter of 2021 should give you plenty of motivation. Just imagine the number of incidents that never make it to the media.
