By Daniel de Vise

Washington Post Staff Writer

Posted Wednesday, July 4, 2007


Excerpt:  And although a parent does have a right to control the upbringing of a child, "that right is not absolute. It must bend to the State's duty to educate its citizens," the [Maryland] state board wrote.


Giving Proper Credit To Home-Schooled

By Michael Alison Chandler

Washington Post Staff Writer
Posted Monday, June 11, 2007


Excerpt: In the pursuit of a homemade high school education, Jay Voris played drums in Guinea, Colin Roof restored a 134-year-old sailboat in Ireland, and Rebecca Goldstein wrote a 600-page fantasy novel and took calculus at the University of Maryland Baltimore County….

Big-Government Conservatives

By John Stossel


Posted Wednesday, June 27, 2007

John Stossel disputes government intervention theory by David Brooks.

Excerpt:  Now David Brooks is a bright guy, so I wonder how he can blame the free market for failing in this way. He continues, "Despite all the incentives, 30 percent of kids drop out of high school and the college graduation rate has been flat for a generation."  Excuse me, but why is that the market's fault? Government dominates education in America. K-12 education is a coercive, often rigidly unionized government virtual monopoly that fights every attempt to experiment with free-market competition...


Liberate the public schools

By Steven Greenhut

Orange County Register

Published June 17, 2007


Excerpt: "...socialist education systems cannot provide decent education no matter how much money is thrown at the bureaucracies....The solution: the complete elimination of the public school system and its replacement with a true free market.... Well, I'm on board with the idea to shut down the public schools, and so is Jonah Goldberg. How can anyone object who believes in freedom rather than central planning?"

'God Complex' in Education

by Bryan Hyde


Originally posted June 4, 2007 - Link no longer available [11-27-07]


Excerpt: Government has assumed more and more control over private life not because the people demanded it, but because power-seekers and privilege-seekers sought outlets for their ambitions. They then propagandized the public until a sufficient number of people came to believe government control was good for them - "Public" education has been remarkably effective in this regard.


How much longer will we sacrifice our children to this sort of nonsense and abuse while holding out for schools to start doing things our way?

Missouri Virtual Instruction Program: Ticket to Mediocrity
Home School Legal Defense Association
Posted April 11, 2007

Excerpt:  Homeschooling is so successful that the State of Missouri wants to do it - but without the parents...  Parents are an unnecessary component in public school at home programs, and the results come as no surprise.  There is no substitute for parents.

As goes Europe, so goes the world?  Here are some examples that will make you double up on your vigilance at home.

England Outlaws Catholic Teaching in Catholic Schools
By Joanna Bogle
National Catholic Register
April 8-14, 2007 Issue
Government sees no limits to its justifiable reach. The U.S. can learn from this example how far the state is willing to go, whether it subsidizes a school or not.
