    Filed at 6:34 pm under by dcobranchi

    A homeschooling mom in Spotsylvania Co. (VA) has received the local GOP endorsement for school board. The current seat-holder was going to retire until he learned that a homeschooler (God forbid) was running. This is evidently beyond the pale.

    “I wasn’t about to give someone who knows nothing about the public school system a free ride into this position,” said Richard Fleming, 78, a furniture salesman whose seven children attended county schools.

    I don’t agree with her platform, which includes allowing homeschoolers to access g-school extracurriculars, but her candidacy certainly shouldn’t be discounted just because her kids have escaped the g-schools.

    Apparently, she knows enough about public education to know that it doesn’t work ….

    I live in Spotsy county…but I can’t imagine why anybody without kids in the system would want to on the school board. Sitting through those meetings, by choice? Ugh.
