"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

The Best Reason Ever to Home School

Have school officials, Family and Children's Services and Canadian police lost their mind?  From HotAir:

Father is arrested for child's drawing of a gun in school. Father is detained, strip searched and his toy gun that shoots foam darts is confiscated.

  1. Until enough people become aware of the fact that the government, especially the Federal Govt., in cahoots with the schools, the teachers' unions and the media have been creating a society of ignoramuses, we will see these sorts of examples of idiotic control by people whose capacity for rational thought has been atrophied through disuse. Home schooling is just the start that is needed to attempt to stem the tide. I fear often that is actually too late. That the imbecility has taken hold over too much of society. How else can one account for instance after instance of 'adult' goons who follow rules and procedures that a 5th grader would see as senseless. Too few people remember ACTUAL freedom anymore.
