How To Homeschool your Kids - The Yuri Homeschool Curriculum
Invitation to comment: Join me in building a new homeschooling curriculum from scratch
Comrades: Homeschooling is the future of education.
As I detailed on Monday, public schools have devolved into babysitting by groomers. Non-parochial private schools are no better, charging upwards of $50K/year for the same indoctrination. Every day, a Democrat teachers union thug is arrested for grooming a student. Thousands more groom with full support from the regime, even if it’s in violation of local laws. Math and reading scores continue to plummet because teachers and administrators are too busy force feeding CRT, LGBTQ, and SEL down kids’ throats. The karents who send their kids to these schools would happily force masks, jabs, and castration on yours because it’s trendy. Student polls at the “elite” Philips Academy show the full extent of the rot.
90% of what I learned at a decent K-12 public school and “elite” college was useless. The knowledge gap is massive and it’s only gotten worse over the past few decades. Many adults are not equipped to become self sufficient and remain in suspended animation of adolescence well into their 20s. The most mature, well-rounded, and high-performing people I have met were homeschooled.
I have drafted a K-12 homeschool curriculum that features “How To” guides. It adopts the following first principles:
North Star: Instill lifelong intrinsic motivation for learning and self-improvement, anchored by the fearless pursuit of truth.
College Optional: By the time they turn 18, students will be self sufficient and don’t need to go to college - it will be their choice to pursue that or begin earning income.
Holistic Curriculum: Subjects will encompass all aspects of life with a balance of practical skills, fact-based knowledge, and classic texts - open discussion prioritized over lectures.
High Standards: Every student should strive for excellence and be in the top 10% of their age and - standardized tests, grades, and homework are markers of progress but not the main focus.
Specialization: Students will be exposed to as many subjects as possible when they are younger (age 5-12), then empowered specialize as they mature (age 12-18).
Socialization: simultaneous cooperation and competition through group projects, many field trips to apply learning to real world applications.
Affordability: target $10K/year, assuming class size of 10 with one teacher paid $100K - higher salary per teacher at lower cost per student than failing public schools.
Resources: integrate a few existing programs with an emphasis on creating over consuming (details after the paywall).
Technology: minimal, used only in ways that enrich and empower - no smartphones.
How To Subvert Subversion will be covered in the last instruction year.
Since this curriculum may prove to be highly valuable, the draft below and final product will be for paid subscribers only. Look forward to brainstorming together!
