On July 23rd, France virtually banned home education. In light of President Joe Biden’s ill-conceived vaccine mandate through businesses with 100 employees or more, is it possible that America will once again become hostile to the freedom to home educate?
Guest host Adam McManus interviews Christian musician Francesca Battistelli on today’s edition of Generations Radio. This real-life homeschool mother of five portrays a homeschool mother of two in the latest installment in the “God’s Not Dead” Christian film series. “God's Not Dead: We the People” hits the silver screen for three days only -- Monday, October 4, Tuesday, October 5, and Wednesday, October 6.
In the film, homeschool parents receive an impromptu inspection by a leftist local government official who doesn’t like what she finds, so Reverend Dave defends them. Believing that the children are receiving an inferior education compared to their public-school counterparts, the intrusive government official contends that they are being unfairly indoctrinated at a young age by their Bible-believing parents. So, the families are ordered to return their children to the government school system. If the homeschool parents do not comply, they face exorbitant fines and contempt of court.
Taken aback by the interference of the government, they believe that their right to educate their own children is a freedom worth fighting for. So, the resistant families, along with Reverend Dave, are invited to Washington to testify in a landmark congressional hearing. It will determine the future of education in America for years to come.
