WASHINGTON – It’s August – and you know what that means.
It’s “back-to-school” madness, and parents around the country are shopping for supplies that will help propel their children to success.
But what does your child really need?
As state-run education gradually clamps down on freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and the values that make the United States so great, the WND Superstore has you covered on the books your kids might not find on the classroom bookshelf.
The first is a mini United States Constitution, a pocket-sized, calfskin leather bound book containing the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights and every constitutional amendment to the present day.
It also includes other important founding documents such as The Declaration of Independence, the Virginia Bill of Rights, the Massachusetts Bill of Rights, the Articles of Confederation and the Virginia Statue of Religious Freedom.
Another great selection for more advanced readers is “The Jefferson Lies: Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson,” a book that uncovers truths about the third president of the United States that your child won’t learn in school.
Author David Barton, a historian, attempts to set the record straight, upending centuries of smears from disingenuous scholars.
For those in high school, the “SAT & College Preparation Course for the Christian Student” is a great way to ready young minds for the notoriously tricky standardized test.
The book helps students build disciplined study skills, increase vocabulary and develop writing skills, all while encouraging them to grow in the Lord.
Specifically designed for Christian students, author James Stobaugh reports “the best SAT scores come from students who have serious, disciplined prayer and devotional lives.”
Stobaugh, a Merrill fellow at Harvard University, is a recognized leader in homeschooling and college preparation education.
For adults, especially those interested in homeschooling, the Superstore also has a variety of books for parents directly invested in the education of their children.
“Crimes of the Educators” reveals how “progressive” educators have dumbed-down American children by taking over government schools and pushing dubious reforms such as Common Core.
“How many parents … send their children to school so central planners can mold them into functionally illiterate cogs in a centrally planned machine, having just enough knowledge to do their preassigned task? How will such cogs be able to think critically, much less sustain liberty and the American experiment?” ask authors Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman.
The answer is far too many.
If you’re interested in beginning to homeschool your children, WND has you covered, too.
Homeschool consultant Marsha Hubler lays out a practical guide for homeschool success in “You’ve Decided to Homeschool, Now What?”
The detailed book shows how to get started and maintain a workable plan.
The book includes sample yearly calendars, sample transcripts, curriculum guides, legal counsel and a list of helpful websites.
The WND Superstore also features a host of educational documentaries perfect for homeschooling, such as “A Nation Adrift,” the true story of how God guided the founders of America, and “Change to Chains,” a documentary explaining the uniqueness of the American democratic experiment.
Another valuable educational documentary is “Constitutional Literacy with Michael Farris,” a DVD set that outlines the constitutional and legal theory essential for American self-government.
Whether you homeschool your children or not, the WND Superstore features an array of conservative educational items all in one place.
