    Harvard professor wants to ban 'authoritarian' homeschooling

    Because parents are authoritarian. Not the government mind you, the parents.
    And those SS seminars and camps? Rather authoritarian as well. If these elites had their way, any and all strength related training and education shall now be taught by personnel judged qualified by by our government overlords, not on actual real world (often non-academic) knowledge.

    Rip, one of your better appearances was on a podcast with Tom Woods about government licensure. Thought of your government licensure article as well.

    (Greetings from Boston. Home of the American Revolution. Unfortunately home to Harvard as well)

    I've been seeing a lot of bitching about homeschooling recently. We've got a podcast about that too. And there's a real easy way to make it not an issue: open up the government schools. After all, we didn't close them.

    The thought that somewhere out there a child is dodging their Marxist programming must keep these people up at night.

    It's not really your toilet. You're renting.

    This pablum is in the news only because it’s Harvard. It wouldn’t have got the attention if it came from anywhere else.

    Much more importantly, when did the gaunt-crunch-high-flannel look become popular with lefty academics?

    My wife and I are homeschooling our two kids because:

    1. Our academic standards are higher than theirs;
    2. Our moral standards are higher than theirs; and
    3. We want to instill a rugged independence the organization of a school system contradicts.

    If that is tyranny, it is the tyranny of being forced to grapple with the big question of what it means to be a man in full. If we are authoritarian, it is because we will not allow them to slumber in slavery to mere passions and fads.
