Why I Homeschool

Reason number 113 why I homeschool my children. At a Newport school board member Jim discussed how are then four year old daughter could read. A teacher turned to Jim and said no four year old can read. At the time she was able to read such books as Go Dog Go by Dr. Suess.

Reason number 347 why I homeschool. My children are my responsibility your property taxes should not have to pay to educate my children.

Someone I have known for 30 years asked me if I was against public education, here was my answer.

Education is a privilege and not a right and should not be funded by the people. Parents should be responsible for funding their children's education. Stalin, Hitler, Marx all loved public education. I am not against education, I am against government funded education.

Friedrich Engels, who in is 1847 draft of the Manifesto called "Principles of Communism" wrote as one of its tenets:
"Education of all children, from the moment they can leave their mother's care, in national establishments at national cost."

"What luck for rulers that men do not think" - Adolf Hitler "Academies that are founded at public expense are instituted not so much to cultivate men's natural abilities as to restrain them." - Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)

For centuries scholars have known that education funded by the government has proven to curb the thinking of men.

Taxpayer funded socialist indoctrination centers aka public schools aka government schools have done their job well when men can no longer see the evils of such institutions.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.
