We've been so busy lately trying to keep up with all the bullcrap being thrown at us from Washington; i.e., socialized healthcare, cap and tax, etc., that it's inevitable that the liberals will try to slip something by us while we are occupied elsewhere. Below is a link to an article entitled The Democrats Want Your Kids written by Ashley Herzog for Townhall.com. If Obama’s Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, has his way, your kids will be in government schools eight hours a day, twelve months a year. The liberals are also proponents of starting your children in government-run schools as young as three years of age. The democrat elite, however, prefer to send their own children to private school. Hmmm...that sounds familiar. Oh yeah, it's kind of like Congress wanting to socialize medicine for us little people, but refusing to be a part of it themselves. Why give up their excellent taxpayer-funded healthcare? But we digress. As far as we know, there isn't legislation being considered at this time to extend the amount of time children will be required to spend in public school, but there is an experimental program in place in Massachusetts. It seems to us that the next step of the liberal strategy would be to outlaw home schooling. Please write your Congressional representatives if you hear any comments from Washington about legislation on these issues.
