Excellent article! I love John Stossel - he's one of the few journalists who seem to embrace common sense.

I had to laugh at the one comment: "Homeschooling is a good idea, but it requires a child with above average discipline and strength of will to make it work."

I'd love to know what exactly constitutes average discipline and what in the world strength of will means to this person.

Thanks for posting that. It was great to hear some common sense put forth about this topic. The court overstepped its bounds by applying to 150,000+ California children what should have applied to one small family.

Keep praying that the re-hearing of this case goes well and homeschooling remains a legal option here in California.

I thought it was a good article too. I think law makers of California are "lacking" an common sense and should keep their nose out of it!

"But why is education the business of government? It's taken for granted that the state is every child's ultimate parent, but there's no justification for that in a free society. Parents may not be perfect — some are pretty bad — but a cold, faceless bureaucracy is no better. "


Great quote....
