The Sun Herald Still Doesn't Get It

Because so long as the education of minors is a matter of public policy, its regulation is a proper function of state government, whether in a classroom or at a kitchen table.

SUN HERALD | Editorial We support HOMEschooling, but not UNschooling - Editorial -

Homeschoolers, like private schools do not receive state funds and therefore should NOT be regulated by the state. I wonder who The Sun Herald thinks will pay for the unnecessary testing they wish to impose.

  1. Have you ever heard any homeschooler you know advocate HS with the extremely limited resources Abe Lincoln had at his disposal? I sure wouldn't, though it might very well be preferable to certain government-run schools. At least the kid wouldn't have to worry about gang violence or drug-dealing!

    I, for one, am very thankful to have access to a well-stocked library, the Internet, lots of museums within a reasonable traveling distance, and enrichment classes.

    "Homeschooling" doesn't mean cloistered in the home reading textbooks all day.
