Socialism Comes Softly

This greatly disheartening story out of California has me demanding choice. How dare California force such rigid orthodoxy on its citizens! I pray that this ruling galvanizes the Home School Legal Defense Association to protest unjust laws which cut to the heart of parenthood. It is a shame to see minorities persecuted just for being different, isn't it?

My favorite quote is the last one, when a woman claims that homeschooling is not "being in a place daily where they [children] would be observed by people who had a duty to ensure their ongoing safety." If parents don't have a duty to ensure the safety of their children, who else possibly could?

I posted about this on my blog today as well. But Paul did some digging and it seems that possibly the story has become a little bit stretched. It seems things aren't quite as bad as maybe reported and homeschoolers nationally are getting all riled up possibly without cause. I think we need to do some more digging to get to the truth...
But suffice it to say CA is not a state I'd want to homeschool in, even without this latest ruling.

Thanks. I'll look forward to your discoveries.

children belong to the parents no the state! I'm voting for the homeschoolers!
