MrsJewelsRae Posted January 31, 2012 Share Posted January 31, 2012 (edited) I came across this book a couple years ago, long after I'd decided to homeschool, so it wasn't an influencing factor. Someone on a facebook hs group i belong to referred to the book and I asked if she was talking about this particular book and mentioned that it was thought provoking. I cannot recall much of it, tbh, and no longer have the book. Anyhow, a man I respect who is an elder at my church and a public school teacher for 30 yrs saw the post (remind me to fix my privacy settings!) and posted that it was a "highly propagandist book and a deliberate attempt to condemn the aim of the public school system". I'm not quite sure how to respond? I didn't say that I belived and applauded all that the book said, simply that it was interesting and concerning. Can someone please tell me how it was propagandist? I don't recall that it was for homeschooling, and the man in question would not defend feminism so I doubt he was coming from an angle that was upset about the line "misguided feminism". I'm really scratching my head here, care to give some input please? Thank you so much! Oh, and you know on fb where it tells the activity of friends? Well I suppose that us how he saw what I posted and I have no idea how to change those settings from my iPhone, which is now my only Internet access.
