    A Michigan teachers’ union spokeswoman scored one for our team.

    The Michigan Education Association doesn’t denounce homeschooling but acknowledges its lack of oversight.

    “Public schools really have to jump through a lot of hoops to receive state and federal funding,” said Karen Schulz, MEA spokeswoman.

    “We don’t even know how many kids are doing homeschooling. There is really no accounting.” [Emphasis mine]

    Bingo! Public schools are accountable to the public because they take public tax dollars. Guess what? We don’t! When they pay me $10,000 per child to homeschool plus a property tax break (g-schools don’t pay taxes), then we can talk about homeschool accountability. Until then, leaves us the heck alone!
