I guess like you have to register your car, your dog , your this, your that.
Why shouldn't you have to register your car? It consumes resources, pollutes, and can kill people. It is also using the roads that the governments of
all levels maintain. You want to be anonymous? Pay the two bucks to take public transportation.
Same thing with dogs. Except for taking them on public transportation.
This has nothing to do with the children.
Yea it does actually. As parents you have a responsiblity to raise children to be a part of society. SOOO hard to be a functional member of society if
you can't read or write.
It has everything to do with control
yea, because giving a person an education and teaching them how to do research is such a controlling move.
What if the gov does not like the curriculum?
government despises those lowly math numbers and chemistry equations. If you homeschool, you kinda gotta follow a curriculum. but you actually have
more freedoms then teachers to teach it. In fact, homeschool parents get pretty creative with regards to teaching. You just submit now and then what
you have taught.
What if the parents feel a religious only schooling is necessary to their child?
Fine. As long as the child can read and write Mohammed
or Jesus and not just recite scripture.
I guess than the gov will just take them away.
Because we all know gov knows best for everyone and everything.
Ever member of government has gotten where they are because of what someone has taught them. The greatest diservice anyone can do to a child is not to
teach them anything so that they don't have any skills in life.
When a child turns 16 then they can decide their education, but I am sure no one yelled at their parents for teaching them how to read and write.
Besides, how would all those teens express their angst without writing dark and gothic poems?
[Still do not understand us people do you?
What? Oh I forgot I am really QXTESSETTE bleep bleep from the 8th sector. *stuffs a tenticle that slipped out back under her shirt*
Cannot allow anyone to not follow the line into that BOX, that the rest of the world belongs in, huh?
If someone didn't teach you to read and write you wouldnt' be on ats telling me something about being a non person and living in a box.
Long before government people read, write,and drew. They are basic human functions.
In fact, most societies to repress people, removed their abilities to read and write. That is how you tell someone that they are not considered equal,
you remove their ability to educate themselves or to be educated.
So unless you are all for repressing sects of society, people have a right to an education till they are old enough to decide for themselves they no
longer need it.
