Why There’s an Increased Interest in Homeschooling
There’s a lot to dislike about many public schools — and right now, student safety is at the top of the list. “After a gunman opened fire on students in Parkland, Florida,” a new Washington Times feature explains, “the phones started ringing at the Texas Home School Coalition, and they haven’t stopped yet.”
Harvard’s Gender Decision on Historic Choirs Strikes a Bad Note
The Harvard College administration is forcing the Harvard Glee Club, founded in 1858 and the oldest collegiate choir in the nation, to open its membership to women following the adoption of new rules, The Harvard Crimson announced. The traditionally all-female Radcliffe Choral Society at Harvard, founded in 1899, is also subject to the new rules.

By John Biver   |   05.09.18
Here was the headline: “Only 33 Percent of Students Proficient in English, Math.” Last month, IFI’s Laurie Higgins wrote: “Devilish Details in School Sexuality-Indoctrination Bill.” And in a recent IFA Spotlight podcast, Higgins discussed the Illinois state senate’s approval of...
Only 33 Percent of Students Proficient in English, Math
About two thirds of eighth graders in American government schools do not even rank as “proficient” in reading or math, according to the U.S. Department of Education's recently released National Assessment of Educational Progress. In some districts, less than eight out of 100 students were proficient in either subject.
Springfield Swampsters Fear ONLY Private-Schooling Parents
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.02.18
Want to know who “progressives” in Springfield fear? They fear parents with kids in private schools. The rest of you are merely annoying gadflies to be swatted down with a rolled-up copy of their school sexuality-indoctrination bill and haughty flick...
Queering Government Schools: Just Say No
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.24.18
For decades homosexual and “trans” activists have used schools to indoctrinate children with the disordered and destructive “LGBTQ” ideology. Thirteen years ago, the Journal of Gay & Lesbian Issues in Education published an article titled “Trans-Friendly Preschool” by now-ordained Rev....
Homosexual Teacher Shames First-Graders at Illinois School
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.19.18
Reason #__ (oh, heck, I’ve lost count) for grabbing your kids and fleeing public schools: “teachable moments” and out and proud homosexuals in legal but fake marriages. Seeing a big front-page Chicago Tribune photo of 30-year-old homosexual hipster Nathan Etter,...
Devilish Details in School Sexuality-Indoctrination Bill
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.16.18
Here’s something many Illinoisans don’t know about the school sexuality-indoctrination bill created by Illinois’ premier homosexual and “trans” activist organizations: Equality Illinois and the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance (formerly part of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network).* This bill, which requires that the “teaching of history shall include a study of the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this state,” also mandates...

Leftist Public School Indoctrination Bill Moving Forward in Springfield
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.09.18
The noxious Leftist “Inclusive Curriculum” bill (SB 3249 and HB 5596) created by two Chicago-based homosexual/”trans” activist organizations (i.e., Equality Illinois and the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance) is moving through the Illinois Senate. The central goal of this costly and...
Inclusive Curriculum Bill and the Church of Secularism
By Pat Hickey   |   04.02.18
I object to two legislative attempts to impose the Secular Religion upon citizens of Illinois: SB 3249 and HB 5596.  They are wholly unnecessary as LGBTQ icons and their works are already present in government schools. My objections concern the...
Sexuality Propaganda: From Drip Drip Drip to Downpour
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.28.18
It may be the drip, drip, drip that gets your kids. A scene in a movie, a passage in a novel, a sympathetic portrayal of homosexuality in a play, a song by a well-know musician, a bullying prevention presentation at...
The Not-So-Secret Weapon of Cultural Warfare
By Jonathan Lewis   |   03.23.18
Jesus once stated that “the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light” (Luke 16:8). Unfortunately, this has been proven all too true in recent generations when it comes to the battle for our culture. On the whole, it seems that those who oppose Christ have been far more successful in shaping society than have the followers of God.
