We released our documentary film almost a year and a half ago and what a ride it has been!
We won Best Documentary and Runner Up to Best of Festival at the 2012 San Antonio Independent Film Festival, have had our DVD picked up by dozens of retailers, have screened the film in numerous conventions, churches, homes and other facilities, we published a 374-page companion book, and have been blessed to read countless emails from people all over the world telling us about the impact our message has had on them. Here’s the most recent:
My husband and I just watched your movie Indoctrination last night and have been overwhelmingly convicted to not send our children to school. We have a 4 year old, 2 year old and a 6 month old so far and we have been agonizing over the decision of where to school our children. Our minds are made up now! We will be home schooling our children. Thank you for making God’s massage so clear as to our responsibility as parents to educate our children ourselves. — Janet, Ontario, Canada
This year, as we get ready to embark on a new season of homeschooling conventions, we are developing a new website for the IndoctriNation Project that will aim at equipping the saints, as it were, to continue to do the work of the ministry. The new site is being built more as a resource for homeschool evangelism (grassroots advocacy), than a movie or book website. Here are some of the exciting features we will be offering:
- A free, 30-minute web version of the film to share with friends
- The ability to watch the full-length film online
- An interactive map with events and screenings
- An easy way to host a screening or book club
- Testimonial videos from parents, students, teachers, pastors, and others
- An Education Manifesto to sign and share with friends and pastors, and
- An integrated social media platform, among other things.
We think of IndoctriNation as a movement, not merely a movie.
Would you be willing to upload a video of yourself and/or someone in your family, giving testimony of why you are not part of the public school system in 60 seconds or less?
Here’s a sneak-peak at our new design.

If you haven’t heard about the Indoctrination book, it’s a companion book to the award-winning documentary “IndoctriNation“. This eye-opening book includes:
- An unforgettable introduction by a father who lost his son in the Columbine school massacre — “I put him in a pagan school where they teach there is no God.”
- 12 common reasons people give not to homeschool — and the manageable reality of this educational alternative.
- Revealing, firsthand accounts of Christian educators working in public schools — sharing the struggles they face in a hostile system.
- The classroom anti-Christian ideologies from humanism, Marxism, utopianism, educational psychology, and more confronting students in public schools today.
Look behind the comfortable myths of an educational system actively at work to alter your child’s moral values, worldview, and religious beliefs. Learn the history and philosophy of public school education — and discover it is based on neither Christian nor American values. Explore the biblical principles regarding education — and who is ultimately responsible for our children’s future.

Our new IndoctriNation book is now on Amazon and the reviews are starting to come in. Here are some of the more interesting comments.
HAROLD (PA): Because of various influences from outside the education system that have taken hold in our nation’s schools such as Humanism, Evolution, Modern Day Psychology, Atheism, and others our nation’s young people are being subjected to teaching that is contrary to what many parents and individuals believe or want their children to be taught. It is said that ignorance is bliss and well most parents are ignorant of what their children are really being taught in their schools which makes ignorance much more than bliss…it makes it dangerous and even deadly. By deadly I mean what is being taught and not being taught in our schools as well as what is happening within our nation’s schools to young people are causing a number of students to either kill themselves or to go to the school to shoot and kill as many people as they possibly can before they kill themselves. And this is a needless and terrible tragedy.
HAELIE (LA): I had a very hard time with this book. Just being honest. Indoctrination: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity is a companion book to the DVD by the same title. I have watched it and it is just as disturbing as the book. Disturbing, however is not bad. In this book and accompanying DVD, the filmmakers and editor have compiled a combination of first-hand interviews and article/book excerpts into one vast resource regarding the history and state of public education in America. Learning more about the history of American public education was quite enlightening to me…and disturbing as well.
TONY (WV): I’m always leery of the book version of a film, especially documentaries and other nonfictional media, mostly because the “novelization” tends to rehash the same ground that I just covered in the movie. But every once in a while, the book proves to be the perfect complement the filmmakers promised. Indoctrination is just such a book: relevant, readable and revealing.
SHAUN (MN): Prior to beginning IndoctriNation, I hadn’t seen the film. Fortunately I had an opportunity to watch the film as I was making my way through the book. While the book is fine as a standalone resource, it’s like trying to drink from a firehose. If you’re going to read the book, I strongly recommend that you watch the film first, so you’ll be better equipped to understand the context of how each chapter relates to the message of the documentary. If you have kids or grandkids, who are currently in the public school system or will be soon, I strongly encourage you to see the film and then read the book. If you are a part of the public education system or have friends and family who are, all of you should strongly consider watching the film and reading the book.
DAVE (ID): Much of what this book shared was new to me in terms of the history of how public education in America came into being, but it should be seriously considered by others because as the authors trace the history of public education they reveal that it has roots not in the Bible but rather in secular thought. Finally this book is important because it not only reveals why American children are having so many issues with learning, but also that what they are learning in schools today is anti-American and against the Judeo-Christian foundations America was founded upon.
When you read the book, please consider writing a short review on Amazon.
