In May, California schools will spend a MONTH promoting unions and denigrating the private sector and freedom. Kids will be told that being forced to pay bribes to work is the American Way, and then they will be informed that cars, buses, cows and tree’s are killing Planet Earth. Government is not about education
“According to Mr Murphy’s book, parents want to control not only what their children learn, but the values they pick up and the company they keep. They are also increasingly convinced that schools are not that good at teaching. Academically, home-schooled children seem to do well; they enter higher education in proportions similar to those who are conventionally educated, and score as well or better on college entrance exams. Nor, on the evidence of Mr Murphy’s book, are they socially backward: most seem confident, assured and well-adjusted. They also have fewer behavioral problems.
