Sam Sorbo Advocates For Homeschooling: ‘My Message To Parents Is: You Are Enough’

By Movieguide® Staff

Sam Sorbo, the wife of actor Kevin Sorbo, vocalized her support for home education and highlighted the importance of parents’ roles in their child’s education.

According to Sorbo, public education risks your developing child’s worldview and core values.

“People are being robbed. The school is robbing parents. It’s robbing them blind,” she told CBN News. “They don’t even know it. I think that parents are waking up to the fact that children are being indoctrinated away from them and away from their beliefs. And now that parents are waking up to that they’re saying, ‘I cannot abide that.’ That’s the bridge too far for them.”

“You’ll hear people say, ‘well, it’s just indoctrination.’ Well, so is homeschooling because everything you teach your children you are putting in a doctrine, your doctrine,” she added. “Parents are realizing, wait – their doctrine isn’t just slightly different than mine. It’s actually counter my doctrine, it’s against my doctrine. It wants to tear my doctrine to shreds. It was a long journey. It took over a decade for me to finally realize, but my message to parents is: ‘you are enough.'”

Sorbo’s experience with putting her eldest son in public school did not give her confidence in the modern-day education system and, more importantly, the minds of future generations.

“I put my oldest in public school. He did two years and at the end of second grade I said to [my husband] Kevin, ‘I think they’re failing,'” Sorbo said. “‘I think they’re not getting the job done. In fact, I think they’re doing such a bad job that I could fail at homeschooling him and we’d still end up ahead of the game. He’d still be better off. That’s how badly they were failing back then and there wasn’t any queer agenda, there wasn’t any gender issues there wasn’t CRT. I just saw through the methodology.”

“When you surrender your child to the school system you are tacitly telling the child, ‘they know better than I do.’ And we think that we’re raising young Christians. We’re not. We’re sending our little children off to Cesar to be educated and then we’re surprised when they come back Romans,” Sorbo added.

More evidence for the failure of the public school system—or success depending on how one looks at it—is the steep incline of professing Christians who are no longer walking in the faith post-graduation.

“Over 80 percent of graduating Christian children who profess to be Christian are atheists by the time they exit college,” Sorbo said. “And that’s not because of college. It’s because they don’t have a firm foundation.”

“That’s why I’m doing my conference – to show parents that there is a better way. It’s far easier than you ever imagined. And the reason you can’t imagine it is because you went to school, and so you think that you know what education is but your children will actually be teaching you what education is once you start investing in them,” she continued. “It’s more rewarding than you ever dreamed.”
