Mark Hoofnagle needs to be banned

Mark Hoofnagle may have an MD and PhD in physiology from the University of Virginia, but when it comes to homeschooling he needs to go back to school. His hatchet job  Homeschooling needs either tighter regulation or to be banned  earns him the idiot award for March.

Very few homeschoolers belong to the "Quiverfull" movement. I dare say most of us find the "Quiverfull" philosophy abhorrent, and the laws already on the books concerning educational neglect would already be applicable to these "Quiverfull" families. Unfortunately underfunded Departments of Children and Family Services are not doing their jobs, but that is no reason to ban an educational choice that has benefited many children and their families.
