    Resistance is futile:

    Borg, who has been home-schooling her 9-year-old daughter, 11-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter for a year, said the effort has been worth the outcome. According to Borg, “Because of home-schooling my children have bonded more…”

    Assimilation will do that to you.

    Does it never occur to the reporters and editors to do some follow up when the local school official makes statements that contradict the state law?
    Halfway in: “According to the New Jersey Department of Education, parents or guardians are not required by law to notify their public school district of their intention to educate a child elsewhere than at school. They are, however, solely responsible for the child’s educational outcome.”

    Just about the end: “Howell Assistant Superintendent of Schools Susan Vonsover said parents should have a say in how their children are educated.’If parents feel it is important to home-school their children and they present a valid curriculum to the district, then they have every right to do so,’ Vonsover said.”

    Actually, the first example does has it right. We who home educate our children are solely responsible for our children’s education.

    In other words, we can’t sue anyone if our kids turn into drooling beggars on the street.

    But the educrats use that word — “responsible” — as if it was some kind of scarey threat.

    (Well, maybe it is, to them…)

    Anyway, NJHA has written to inform the Howell ps district of their misconception regarding the presentation of curriculum to the schools.

    “We don’t need no steekin curriculum.”

    I have no problem with the responsible part. 🙂 I’d like to see the reporter do his/her job and at least question the conflict, giving it some column space it if both positions are in the story.
