New Documentary Covers The Topic of Indoctrination Of Students In Public Schools

(One News Now)A filmmaker and home-schooling father explains the problems with public education in a new documentary to be released this summer.

In IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America, Scottish-born producer Colin Gunn gives an answer to the education woes: Christ. Now living in Texas with his wife and children, Gunn tells OneNewsNow the only solution is found in the Bible.

"'The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom' (Proverbs 1:7), and if we want education, it has to be grounded in God's Word," he contends. "And that is certainly not what we have in the public schools."

Gunn believes parents need to take responsibility for their children's education and put an end to an addiction that he calls "educational welfare, which is this free government-offered education system."

"We see it's time to get it off that welfare and to take responsibility to home school your child or private school your child," the filmmaker suggests. "Certainly, your obligation scripturally is that you're responsible for that, so we encourage parents to really deal with this big issue."

He says home schooling is very doable for many parents, and it protects children from the harm they would likely experience in public schools.

"We cover that in the movie. We cover many of the consequences of peer pressure and some of the violent actions that have gone on in public schools, including the Columbine story," Gunn notes.
