Valerie at HEM has an interesting theory on why HSLDA is scaring the sheeple again. IAATN (It’s All About the Numbers). :-)

I thought everything HSLDA did was about the numbers?

A similar drive is going on in Canada.

I wouldn’t be one to say whether it had anything to do with membership…I think any organization utilizes information of the day to increase membership if it is at all possible, but I think it may have come up because there was a report put out the day before WorldNet Daily posted about the CRC. There is also some sort of organized effort trying to push this forward to ratification, including a summit held earlier this month (18th to 20th?) in the capitol.

My issues with this don’t really have anything to do with homeschooling…but this did raise numerous questions for me.

The larger question is WHY should homeschoolers ever be itnerested in The Parental Rights Amendment? Unless of course, they WANT to govenment to define parenting. Or, better yet, in the words of NJ’s proposed 1997 PRA:

23. (a) The right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children shall not be infringed.
(b) The Legislature shall have the power to define and enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of the paragraph.”

Pay attention, this one is dangerous to your freedom to decide what parenting is.
