An Online Site Where Homeschoolers Teach Their Children to Be Nazis

When I first read this post on Diane Ravitch’s blog my jaw dropped and I thought, “No, no way!!!” But I know that Diane is a reliable blogger not given to conspiracies or exaggeration. She is a historian of education, an educational policy analyst, and a research professor at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Previously, she was a U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education. So, I read the article she quotes here, did a bit more digging, and long story short, I am truly horrified by the group she writes about. Thank you, Diane, for bringing this abomination to our attention!

Christopher Mathias wrote at Huffington Post about a group called Dissident Homeschool that provides resources for parents who want to teach their children to be Nazis. Through research and inquiry, he found the names of the couple who administer the site. Many of the states enacting voucher plans include payments for homeschooling. If you live in one of those states, your tax dollars might be subsidizing the training of Nazis.

Please read the entire article. It’s too long to repost in its entirety. It is awful that parents would do this, and worse that it is subsidized by public funds in many state voucher plans.

    • I’m just appalled that there are that many people who … nearly 80 years after the fact … still think that being a Nazi is something admirable. It literally has made me sick. How many other, smaller groups are out there that nobody even knows about, teaching cruelty and fascism to young minds? Sigh.


      • Obviously more than there should be, but it is best we know about them, no matter how sick it makes us feel. We cannot fight them unless we know about them.
        Just another reason to reassess the role of the nuclear family in our society!

        • So true. We cannot fend off that of which we’re unaware. Makes me wonder, though, how much worse it is than we’re even aware of?

          Well, you can reassess ’til the cows come home, but we both know you’re not going to change that. Heck, we can’t even convince people to give up their guns … you think they’d give up their children? Well … some already have, but most wouldn’t, and you cannot legislate that … at least not in the U.S.
