You just don't get it, do you??
I get quite a lot more than you think. You assert that parents cannot be home so therefore it is up to the State to educate the children and babysit
them and determine the outcome. That also means that stay at home parents cannot function in the stead of the State by home-schooling. At least that
is what you seem to be meaning. Because you assert parents cannot be at home to take care of their children, and by that incapable of raising them.
But that is in today's society. I seem to recall that Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote in her book, "Little House On The Prairie" that for a time she stayed
at home and her "pa" educated them.
Why is the Obama admin trying to prevent parents from homeschooling? Likely he believes like you do that parents are unable and unwilling to do the
job the State asserts it has the right to do.
From what I understand, and I am still researching, the Common Core curriculum promoted by Obama is making it so that the children who get
homeschooled will be unable to pass state tests and thus to graduate and get into college. It is nothing but a dirty trick.
Even were I to concede that in today's economy both parents must work and therefore the State has the responsibility to educate the children, the
State still wrests whatever little control the parent would otherwise have.
But again, you assert that parents are incapable of raising their own children and the State (the Village) therefore must do it.
The tactic before Common Core was to use Values Clarification to assert the State's right to control the thinking and behavior of children over the
values and mores of their parents. This is a fact. It's not ok for parents to convey religious beliefs to their children but it is ok for the State to
wrap the children's minds up in such things as wondering what it would be like to commit suicide and how would they do it? That is a real Values
Clarification program so don't bother trying to refute it.
Children are precious treasures.
Yes, and I would hope that you would be against the State sexualizing them at the earliest possible age by promoting sex ed for them in kindergarten
with Planned Parenthood and SIECUS writing the programs. This is what Candidate Obama wants to do. And SIECUS even boasted on their website that they
got federal funds from the STIMULUS.
