Aaron Osmond, Utah State Senator, Calls For End To Mandatory Education

A Republican state senator in Utah is calling for the end of mandatory education in the state.

State Sen. Aaron Osmond (R-South Jordan) wrote on the state Senate blog Friday that mandatory education in the state has forced teachers and schools to take on parenting responsibilities. Prior to the mandate taking effect in 1890, he wrote, education was "an opportunity" and parents were more engaged. He also wrote that teachers were more respected. The Deseret News first reported Osmond's blog post on Tuesday.

Osmond is the nephew of entertainers Donny and Marie Osmond. His father, Virl, was not a member of The Osmonds.

Ah yes, we need to go back to 1890, for the sake of the children and the teachers. It's neanderthals like this that really make me miss EarlG's weekly "Top Ten Conservative Idiots" on the old DU.

2. as I have said for decades, it is hard to control a population that can think. if a person is not

educated, then it is far easier to put out whatever kind of bs you want.

6. This just burns me, SunSeeker!

Some parents completely disengage themselves from their obligation to oversee and ensure the successful education of their children. Some parents act as if the responsibility to educate, and even care for their child, is primarily the responsibility of the public school system. As a result, our teachers and schools have been forced to become surrogate parents, expected to do everything from behavioral counseling, to providing adequate nutrition, to teaching sex education, as well as ensuring full college and career readiness.

Unfortunately, in this system, teachers rarely receive meaningful support or engagement from parents and occasionally face retaliation when they attempt to hold a child accountable for bad behavior or poor academic performance.

Hey Aaron, you stupid pompous ass. You ever think about the fact that parents are working more than one job these days to make ends meet? You think they don't care for their children enough to give them the time of day? Seriously, it's all about the parents and not the fact that you and your buddies took our economy and flushed it down the fooking toilet. You and your buddies own that!

You party disgusts me with their ignorance, intolerance and lies. Shame on you for doing your best to destroy America!
