Delaine Eastin: A Bad Choice For Homeschoolers

Mark Twain said, "First God made idiots for practice. Then he created school boards."

Delaine Eastin takes the cake. She served as Superintendent of Public Instruction for California from 1994 to 2002. During which time she seemed to support racism, by nominating Lomitas Elementary School as a "National Blue Ribbon School", even though she was fully aware of the discrimination that was occurring at Lomitas Elementary School


A scandal involving funds for adult education and citizenship classes took place on her watch. Many of the "'community-based organizations"' that were receiving this money, more than $20 million all told, failed to meet the qualifications. In some cases the funds were going to buy jewelry and luxury automobiles. One of the schools turned out to be an empty field. When this was brought to Ms. Eastin's attention she punished the whistle blowers not the wrong doers.


During her dictatorship, acrimony between the homeschooling community and Ms. Eastin was at an all time high.


At this time Delaine Eastin is the executive director of the nonprofit National Institute for School Leadership. Where she is again attempting to cause trouble for homeschoolers. In a recent article in the Akron Beacon Journal Ms. Eastin is quoted as saying, "We're making such a fuss about accountability for some and no accountability for others, shouldn't we pay some attention to the homeschoolers?"

Ms Eastin, first you need to work on cleaning up the mess in the public schools; Discrimination, Racism, Corruption etc.
Homeschools have gotten along just fine without your "help" and I assure you we will continue to get along fine without any interference from you.
