A kid spends ten years in public school. Then, less than a year as a home-school kid. Then enrolls in a public university.
And then kills his mother and 26 other people. Four years after ending a year of home schooling.
Obviously it’s Home Schooling’s fault!
Under a new law proposed this week by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy’s Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, every homeschooling parent with a child who has been labeled with a behavioral or emotional problem would be forced to submit to a host of strict, burdensome regulations.
The scheme put forth in the commission’s draft recommendations on mental health would require homeschooling parents to submit individual education plans regularly to a local education bureaucrat.
School officials could then decree whether parents may continue to educate their own children, reports the Connecticut Post. Administrators could pull the plug on any parents’ homeschooling by declaring that the child failed to make “adequate progress.”
Bear in mind that Lanza was well on his way to loopdie-land when he was in the public school system. What good did any of them do?
Members of the Democratic Governor’s Sandy Hook commission have conceded that the additional burdens they have recommended for homeschooling families may be controversial.
Dear Connecticut; the entire United States would be better off if the Blue States seceded – and if you want to get the ball rolling, that’d solve problems for everyone.
