Top Ten Reasons to Criminalize Homeschooling
As per Scrappleface - here they are!
*Most parents were educated in the underfunded public school system, and so are not smart enough to homeschool their own children.
*Children who receive one-on-one homeschooling will learn more than others, giving them an unfair advantage in the marketplace. This is undemocratic.
*How can children learn to defend themselves unless they have to fight off bullies on a daily basis?
*Ridicule from other children is important to the socialization process.
*Children in public schools can get more practice "Just Saying No" to drugs, cigarettes and alcohol.
*Fluorescent lighting may have significant health benefits.
*Publicly asking permission to go to the bathroom teaches young people their place in society.
*The fashion industry depends upon the peer pressure that only public schools can generate.
*Public schools foster cultural literacy, passing on important traditions like the singing of "Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg..."
*Homeschooled children may not learn important office career skills, like how to sit still for six hours straight.
May I add one of my own?
*Homeschooled kids don't have the benefit of being drugged into submission because they are too 'lively'.
