68. Point taken, but that should be what PUBLIC education is for
It makes my blood boil that these zealots are trying to infiltrate the institutions that my taxes support.

Homeschooling requires that a parent actually *be* at home to school the child. For most people, this isn't an option. My take on homeschooling is that it's another tool to keep women at home, out of the workforce, invisible. I have no figures, but I'll bet the majority of homeschool teachers are moms.

You can't hoist them by their own petard on this one. Vouchers are a bad, bad idea. Rather restore public schools to their original purpose, don't you think?
