Homeschooling should be banned–7 Jun 11

Consider this quote by Professor Martha Albertson Fineman of Emory University School of Law in 2009 in What is Right for Children?  The Competing Paradigms of Religion and Human Rights, “Private education should be banned.  All of it.  Private schools, religious schools, homeschools. … [T]he more appropriate suggestion for our current educational dilemma is that public education should be mandatory and universal.  Parental expressive interest could supplement but never supplant the public institutions where the basic and fundamental lesson would be taught and experienced by all American children:  we must struggle together to define ourselves both as a collective and as individuals.”

Wow.  I thought God defined us and gave us clear instructions related to the collective and the individual.  Silly me.
