After the COVID-19 “crisis,” homeschooling in America began to grow exponentially as parents discovered that public schools were either lying to them about what curriculum was being taught or that forced masking and vaxxing was an unacceptable scam.
With this influx of homeschoolers, Americans are realizing the freedom found in home education. However, homeschooling was not always so popular or even legal in some parts of America.
Zan Tyler, the founder of the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools, began her homeschooling journey in 1984, when home education was illegal, and she was even threatened with jail. Her fight for homeschool freedom has led her to serve as the National Grassroots Director for ParentalRights.org, to advocate for homeschooling in the media (appearing on NBC’s Today Show) and at the nation’s capital, and to write profusely about the benefits of homeschooling.
Zan joins Alex Newman on The Sentinel Report to discuss her experience and much more. She is an inspirational speaker and author, a consultant for BJU Press and the Home School Legal Defense Association, and the founder of the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS). For sixteen years, Zan worked with Christian publishers to develop homeschool curriculum and resources. She considers the twenty-one-years she and her husband, Joe, spent homeschooling their own three children from kindergarten through high school to be one of the greatest privileges of her life.

1–Scouting appears to be collapsing. At its peak, the BSA hosted 50,960 attendees at the 1964 Jamboree at Valley Forge, Pa., and President Lyndon B. Johnson gave a speech. Attendance waned and waxed over the years, and in 2017, around 40,000 Scouts went to the Jambo at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, a 10,600-acre property in West Virginia that had been donated to the BSA. This year, only 15,000 are expected to attend.

5–National Association for Gun Rights Issues Travel Advisory for the State of Massachusetts Boston, MA: The National Association for Gun Rights has issued a travel advisory for gun owners traveling to and within Massachusetts in response to the State Legislature’s 140-page bill, House Docket 4420. HD 4420 is a comprehensive gun control bill that would ostensibly ban more guns than any current law in the United States.
These are some of the provisions contained in the bill:
* Updates the state definition of “Assault-style firearm” to ban almost all semiautomatic
* Bans the concealed carry of firearms at private businesses unless expressly permitted.
* Retroactive compulsory registration of all firearms.
* Registration of all firearm magazines and feeding devices; no grandfathering.
*It requires all feeding devices and magazines to have a serial number.
* Ban anyone under age 21 from buying or carrying a semi-automatic shotgun or rifle.
* Lays out compulsory “safe storage” requirements.
* Changes the definition of “firearm” to include stun guns.
* Puts more regulations on firearms dealers.
Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights “This is probably the biggest and worst package of gun control regulation I have ever seen, and that is saying a lot. A ban on almost all guns, registration of every gun and magazine in the state (old and new), and a de facto ban on firearms carry are in the bill. Massachusetts just secured the top position as the most hostile state in the union to gun owners,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “That is why NAGR is issuing a Travel Advisory for all gun owners within the state or thinking of traveling to the state.”
“Your gun rights and your freedom are at serious risk in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If you live there you might want to pack your bags and if you are thinking of traveling there, you need to reconsider,” said Brown.
