Homeschooling to become illegal in France and suddenly I don't feel like living here any more

Last year Macron made school compulsory from age three and now he is making homeschooling illegal. This is a sad day for France because there had been a surge in interest for homeschooling ever since he started forcing three year olds out of their family homes and now with the covid induced hysteria, that trend is quickly increasing. So naturally, he did what he had to do (to flatten the curve) and cut off any chance of liberated parents passing on their liberated views to their children while guaranteeing that every last child in France be indoctrinated by the state. Sorry, did I say indoctrinated? I meant educated.

It seems completely absurd to me that this strange little man has the right to tell me how I must educate my kids. Shouldn't he be thanking people like me who want to take pressure off the state and prevent the spread of the virus by keeping our kids at home?

Errr... apparently not.

I feel a bit shocked by this and yes, perhaps even a little angry.

We had started the homeschooling application process but might as well throw it in a bin now.

I don't have much else to say at this point.

Fuck you NWO.

Thanks @roxane for alerting me so quickly

If the translation is accurate, he's pretty open about it being about conforming to the state. Not even trying to hide that this is why they're heading any more. From this, I'm guessing there would be no option for a distance education as the rain for attendance isn't just about their specific form of education, but about making sure they are in a controlled environment that the state approves of.

Holy shit that is simply awful... parents should always have the right to oversee their child's education if they so choose. Government-run education is often little more than blatant indoctrination, and even at best it is not that high-quality compared to a custom-tailored program to meet a child's proclivities. Hoping this law gets repealed.

Something tells me it won't get repealed, but one can always hope. People are too busy just trying to make ends meet.

Even the most basic reality that the teachers wear masks all the time is a form of brainwashing to accept the masks as being normal. Which they are not!

If the translation is accurate, he's pretty open about it being about conforming to the state. Not even trying to hide that this is where they're heading any more. From this, I'm guessing there would be no option for a distance education as the reason for attendance isn't just about their specific form of education, but about making sure they are in a controlled environment that the state approves of.

I see two main options for you moving forward. You could move to another country and hope the option to homeschool remains long enough there for your children to get through the school system. Alternatively, you can still teach your children outside of school hours, to help them learn to think for themselves and problem solve in ways the school system doesn't.

Option number one sounds more preferable in the long run. For now they are still in nursery school which is mostly just games & sport, so I'm okay to let it go. But once it is time for Esteban to begin real school it will be time for us to leave. Which is sooner than I expected, but that's just what it is. I am calmer now so I feel again that the Universe is prodding me for a good reason ;)

As I see each country falling along this line, I'm grateful that my daughters have pretty much finished their homeschooling journey. Unfortunately, it doesn't bode well for them if they want to home educate their children in the future.

I feel like the school system would definitely have failed my youngest, unless I'd been doing extra with her at home and I wonder, now, if my eldest wouldn't have become disillusioned and lost interest. If she's anything like her cousin, she may have even gotten in with the wrong crowds as well.

Glad you've regained your calm. I know you'll find the path for your family. 💚

I can't help thinking of a discussion you had with a mutual friend (at least a year ago) when he warned you about France being a nWO govt and suggested you join him in Poland. I think you had too much already invested in staying where you are (emotionally) and so you did not give it the open-minded thought you should have.

If it were me, while they are still accepting European migrants, I would go to Hungary - they are the only EU country with a govt determined to protect their citizens from the globs. If you are to make such a decision, you will need to make it as early as possible. You do not want to make such a decision after the govt makes a law not allowing parents to take their children out of the country (an example).

Ah Sam that's Shit my friend, there is a loop hole in Spain, where you can get taken to court for abandonment of education, but once you can prove your child is receiving an education then it is okay. Time to get your kids and head to the mountains or get out of France, this is such an important decision you have to make right now. My thoughts are with you xxx

A good mountain walk (with the cat!) yesterday and I feel much better now.

I can accept nursery school but I cannot accept anything beyond this. So, by September 2021 we must have a way out. Which we will.

Please keep me informed on your journey x

Compulsory school is bad enough, but at 3 years old? In this day and age where there are so many options and now with Covid, I'm surprised this can fly. I'm very sorry for you.

Any chance for some sort of legal appeal? Are people accepting of this?

For now barely anyone seems to have even noticed. Time will tell if the people stand up against it, but something tells me they are too busy just trying to make ends meet. Timing is everything with law changes such as these.

Ugh. To me, that just speaks to the illegitimacy of their actions. I wish you the best.

I would completely see it a legitimate reason NOT to send your kids to school, in the same way as you (meaning people in general) don't go to bars, theaters, football games, or even to your office: in order to stay at home and control the spread of the virus that apparently France is suffering greatly under!

But I'm certain you are not the only family affected by this, particularly if this is such a recent trend. Could you not get organized and refuse to comply? (Without taking to the streets, it's a pandemic after all.)

But you live in the Pyrenees, so this should mean Spain is not too far... Of course, leaving behind that lovely area with the wonderful food forest is not something I would want to do, either. On the other hand, if they don't leave you another choice, what else can you do?

A good walk yesterday and I feel much better today. While it is just nursery (creativity, games & sports) I can accept it. But by Sept 2021 we must have our next move planned. Perhaps it will be Spain. Let's see what the Universe has to say ;)

Are you serious? Spain?

They are ten times worse!

As a matter of fact, things are so bad there (ciommunism, NWO and filling up with moslem invaders) that I now see homes being offered for sale at a fraction of last years' prices. That is always a good indicator of how things are. Sort of like jumping from the frying pan into the fire!

Don't think it is realistic to sum up an entire country with such a statement. If one is able to remain off the radar it doesn't really matter where one is.

I have friends with communities in Spain & Portugal and they seem content enough with their location. So, if we don't stay here it is possible we will join them. But if I am going to be honest, the long term plan will likely take us further south. I am actually looking at the countries of North Africa now where we would look to join others who are established there.

If we can find a place which takes us far enough off the beaten track life can continue here in France. For the next few years anyway.

A place like this for example:

There are many reasons for this desired move. Not just the education system. The weather will continue getting worse over the next few decades for the northern & southern hemispheres and eventually it will be impossible to grow food in the traditional manner. Only in the tropics will people survive with ease.

Mexico is another long term possibility. Just not sure how we will get there once all the international vaccine rules come into play.

Wankers.

Yep. Can't say it much clearer than that.

That's bad :/ I hope you can find a way.

We will ;)

there must be a common law remedy for this bullshit - you might check out solutionsempowerment.com and see what people there have to say about this tyranny!

There is no common law in France. I believe it's a case of it's illegal unless specifically allowed.

wow -

Sad times.

We will find a way...

Appreciate the tweet.

Liberty? Yeah right.

the law and the promise

now more than every.
