Yesterday I received in the mail the documentary that I ordered recently and was suprised to get it quickly. We ate dinner and cleaned up and decided to watch the movie as a family. The movie I am referring to is titled: IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America.
I have been watching the trailer and clips online for this movie for some time now and was eager to watch the entire film, being overseas, I was glad that I was able to pre-order and they were able to ship to an APO address.

What is the documentary about and who is the audience for it?
Well, for me, I believe every parent who has a child in the public school system should view this movie and ESPECIALLY Christian parents.
It shows in detail throughout the movie the history of the public school system from the beginning of America till today. You can see how all anti-God teachings came into the school system and how this has affected our children and social issues surrounding them. It's about a film producer who homeschools his children, they buy a yellow school bus and take a trip across the country to meet with experts and Christians leaders on the subjects of America, Christianity, Homeschooling, and the Public School.
You have pastors who are speaking up about this issue and it was interesting to hear from prominent school administrators, principals, and teachers who are CHRISTIAN and give a FIRST-HAND accounts about public schools and their intimate personal decisions they make concerning the public schools and their Christianity.
There is really no argument about having children 'be the salt and light' in a public school --time and time again--this is a statistic that doesn't measure up in the name of Christianity. I remember reading once that, "If you are preparing for war, you first need to train your soldiers ---you don't just drop them off in the middle of the war with no training or personal growth." And yet, if you really look at a public school-- your child has no battle-buddies and are left for dead (spiritually dead that is). If everything that a Christian parent teaches at home is being contradicted at school--is that not confusing your child? Who is right--You or the System?
The film also brings up the era of Nazi Germany and it reminded me of a another quote I read, "He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!" - Adolf Hilter. Hilter knew the very importance of gaining the hearts and minds of the youth for ideology for his twisted Utopia society.
I was baffled at some of the quotes and actual clips of the NEA (National Education Association) and their leaders' viewpoints. It was very disturbing to me as a Christian parent. No wonder children are not doing well in schools in America. Public schools have become a mass production of a general social experiment and the dealer is our American government & politicians.
WOW!! --you say (that's going a little overboard --isn't?) **Not from where I stand.
So, if you want to discuss the film, please leave a comment (but only after you have seen the film and have done a little research on our government schools).
Oh, by the way, The Exodus Mandate, was a key factor (besides scripture & Homeschool friends/family), in making our decision to go from public school to homeschooling our children. I would definitely visit them if you are contemplating homeschooling or looking at Christian education for your children.
I challenge you, as a Christian parent, to watch this film. It only soldify our beliefs that we want to instill in our children via homeschooling.
