Anti-homeschool professor reveals warped, real agenda
Parents, she said, should "commit to" teaching the curriculum of public schools.

"I think that you know, roughly speaking, the public school curriculum ought to be something that homeschooling parents are willing to commit to, and demonstrate that they are able to teach," she said. "So ‘presumptive ban’ simply means shifting the burden of justification to parents."

Further, she thinks children must be exposed "to the public schools' environments," through taking courses.

The fundamental problem she sees is that parents have an absolute right to withdraw their children from public schools. ...

Much wisdom in your post, Wayfarer.

The whole Dr. Spock debacle comes to mind. One would think folks would learn not to follow people who don't actually know anything about where they are leading to.

I always am leery of anyone who either is not married and a parent bringing up to those who are the pitfalls of being a parent or married. How can you give advice without knowledge of how to raise or educate children, unless you are married with children.

By Jim's reasoning, public schools should be closed because teachers have abused, ridiculed, and seduced students. Like politicians today responding to BLM protests, use institutional failings as a pretext to ban them.

Come to think of it, both public schools and police are unionized, the agenda of the old Left. Now there's some room for reform.

Acts 17:26

He made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the surface of the earth, having determined appointed seasons and the boundaries of their dwellings,

Barnes' New Testament Notes wrote:
....The design of the apostle in this affirmation was, probably, to convince the Greeks that he regarded them all as brethren; and that, although he was a Jew, yet he was not enslaved to any narrow notions or prejudices in reference to other men. It follows also from this, that no one nation, and no individual, can claim any pre-eminence over others in virtue of birth or blood. All are in this respect equal; and the whole human family, however they may differ in complexion, customs, and laws, are to be regarded and treated as brethren. It follows, also, that no one part of the race has a right to enslave or oppress any other part, on account of difference of complexion. Nor has man a right, because
"He finds his fellow guilty of a skin
Not coloured like his own, and having power
T' enforce the wrong, for such a worthy cause to
Doom and devote him as his lawful prey."...
--"Acts 17:26"

As much as some of you, want to name call this woman it still doesn't answer the question of the number of racist and child molesters who homeschool❗

How about a ban on Professor Bartholet? Just because there's no ban on stupid, doesn't meant there shouldn't be one.

Rachel Chen and Scott P. Mahon wrote:
.....
Her original article claims that the lack of regulation on homeschooling poses a danger to children, because it risks depriving them of an adequate education, exposure to a diverse array of ideas, and protection from potential child abuse. In the 80-page document, she writes that only ten states require minimum education levels for homeschooling instructors, and no states require background checks for past child abuse.

Above all, she says she fears for the children taken out of public schooling due to their parents’ religious beliefs, often those of conservative Christianity. Estimates place the fraction of parents who homeschool for religious reasons from “over half to 90 percent,” she writes. In the article, she argues that children in these situations lack exposure to beliefs and ideas beyond those held by their parents; she is particularly concerned about the children of homeschoolers who “question science and promote female subservience and white supremacy.”...

Our British set up is a little different from the radically humanist secularist system of the public schools in both the USA and also in France, which has a similar emphasis.

The British state school system does indeed face many of the same secularist pressures of the United States system, and sadly LGBT etc., environmentalism, political correctness and wokeness are taught in the schools.

We have both state and church schools in England that receive public funding, and broadly divided into 3 types: LEA schools, run by local councils that are slowly dying out, as no new ones can be founded or built. The second type are academies, run by private trusts and corporations, including religious foundations, but with central government funding, and free schools, usually run by small groups or parents, with some central government funding, but still using the National curriculum.

However, it is still better for Christian parents to either homeschool (which is legal here), or failing that place their children in the few tiny genuinely evangelical Christian independent schools.

Humble, a lot of the guys I know, homework work was given to them optional. So they just didn’t do it.

I know most everyone had been ready for the quarantine to lift. Not seeing anyone is boring.

Also yes. My sister is a nurse and she said the people it affects bad enough to go to the hospital are almost always, older, have bad health already or have weak immune systems.

I wonder if more kids have made more progress in these days of homeschooling than before.
And some parents may have learned that it is better for them to be at home, concentrate on their studies rather than the school bus trip, the free school lunches, the physical education classes, etc.
I wonder if anyone is complaining about the lack of socializing that is usually mentioned when home schooling is discussed.
I guess when the Govt Experts at CDC say no groups greater than 10, that has to carry more weight.
I wish we had more news reporting on what percentage of virus cases are in prisons, nursing homes, and by age. Maybe they don't report it because we would see that youth are not affected as much.

Another reason is avoiding abusive peers. For some reason, Assault or Battery are illegal against adults, and they're also illegal at home, but it's OK for minors in school. Same goes for "Hate Speech" like "Four Eyes" etc. And of course some kids are a bad influence morally.
Surely.
Parents naively assume that in sending a child to a public school the main influence on them would be their teachers.
Wrong, the main factor influencing their children is the peers.

Even in Christian schools using the right curriculum this is a crude fact.
A 'bad apple' coming from a home with unsupervised media intake, with the inherit lack of discipline that brings, is all it takes to undo all the good will of dedicated Christian teachers and godly home influences of the rest of the class.

I have heard some Christians say that Christian kids should be sent to public schools to be “salt and light.” While that may sound good, no amount of salt can restore the long-rotten body of a dead animal. The only thing to do is burn or bury it and move on.

Not just special needs, but slow or gifted students may also be frustrated by curricula aimed (at best) at the average child, which doesn't exist: no one's child is average. "Average," the middle of the Bell Curve or Gaussian Distribution, is merely a statistical generalization of a population.

Learn some Statistics to resist being overly impressed by "scientists" and pollsters.

There are many reasons to homeschool, actually. We have a special needs child who would not have done well in a traditional school setting. Homeschooling has allowed us to find curriculum that fits best in terms of approach then there is that aspect of controlling content.

Good observation Mike.

Start with presumptive lingo, add some fluff to distract, then wrap it up with the proverbial trap for anyone who would dare disagree with their point to be placed immediately in the shame box.

...we need take back the language. Leftists are good at stealing it for their own purposes.
Yes! Language for them isn't merely for communication, it's a weapon to gain political power. "It's for the children" is a Big Lie to deceive the simple. Anyone who endorses infanticide can't be sincerely concerned about the welfare of children.

By contrast, Christians who respect the 9th Commandment will (or ought to) aim for clarity and truth in their language, since God is Truth.
