Want to know why we homeschool?

One reason we homeschool is because we don't want our children to be indoctrinated by others' political agendas (usually at the expense of unimportant things like, you know, actual learning).

Case in point:  an ethnic studies text presently in use by the Tucson (Arizona) Unified School District, which, one mother was told, is presently used in multiple classes, including third grade.  This mother read excerpts from this text in a school board meeting earlier this week, as shown below.  Note:  objectionable language warning.  Also note the absurdity of the school board member's comment at 2:53.

(Hat tip:  The Blaze.  A partial transcript of the excerpts may be found at The New American.)
