I wonder if our kids ever hear any of these comments or questions:
This girl’s video reminds me of the music video comedian Tim Hawkins created several years ago — “A Homeschool Family,” set to the tune of “The Addams Family.”
Sadly, the misinformed opinions about homeschooling that inspire parodies like those also can have serious repercussions. A recent article in Ohio that subtly pushes the idea of restricting the rights of homeschoolers illustrates that point:
As homeschooling increases in popularity and education bureaucrats fear for their jobs, expect more stories like this about liberal do-gooders trying to force their idea of what’s best for America’s children onto concerned parents. It’s already ugly out there for some homeschoolers (more stories here) and is likely to get worse.
If you home-school your children, do enjoy videos like the ones mentioned above. But don’t become complacent about your rights to oversee your children’s education or you may lose them.
