Stalin’s Russian Army is not a goal to which the American Army should ever aspire. Stalin came close to losing to Hitler and he certainly would have if America had not been supplying Russia. Stalin made very many mistakes; it is hard to know exactly which one may have helped Hitler the most. Stalin probably would not have needed women to fight if he had not sent so many Russian men particularly military men to Gulags.

Google Jeremy Mardis a six year old blue eyed autistic boy who was gunned down by two black ex con cops in Louisiana. The few things I have that angry blacks covet I will never give them. Many blacks are capricious and they regard whites who beg for forgiveness for sins they never committed as deserving of punishment.

The other side of this story can be found at the Texas Homeschool Coalition (THC) site.The progressives have been economical with the truth as usual. The case against the home school family is the result of a nasty multimillion dollar lawsuit against the McIntyres.The McIntyres proved in court that several family members maliciously tried to steal their portion of a family business.Some of the family members who lost the case happen to be publicschool teachers.The publicschool teacher relative’s observations are not to be trusted because of the grudge they hold over losing money to McIntyres.
_This explains so much about the bad educational advice the seventeen year old runaway has been fed.A seventeen year old should never be put in the same educational bracket as fourteen year olds unless the fourteen year olds are in college.The groups that coach illiterate central Americans to pass the Texas college equivalency tests would have no trouble coaching a native English speaker in passing those tests.Someone needs to tell the girl she is being used by her publicschool teacher relatives and they are deliberately making her look more stupid than she is.If the public schoolteacher relatives are so malicious that they would stick the seventeen year old in ninth grade and use her against her family then they will throw her into the street when done using her. Not only should this case not have any effect on home schoolers as a hole.The Case should have no effect on the McIntyres.

No! Not a test from you or any other progressive. Progressives and only progressives should have their sanity checked once a year; that is all I am asking. Progressives are all nuts. How egregious can you get? I will not agree with you on anything; If you said the sky was blue I would run outside to check.There is nothing you can write which will make me agree with giving government more control over homeschoolers. I have a better case for having the sanity of progressives tested once a year by hand picked conservative doctors than you have for having homeschoolers tested by progressives. I am done with you. I will no longer respond to your attempts at writing ;do not take that at as a sign that agree with your crazy plans.

The case is exceptional. You are just flat out wrong for wanting the state to test all homeschoolers because of one weird family that in all probability could never have been helped by a public school at all. Only progressives try to base law on extreme data points. Usually when progressive use such data points to make a case against a group of people the data turns out to be fraudulent. This will probably in the long run turn out to be no different. The court tries to write bad law based on a ludicrous family and the real homeschoolers will raise Hell .

“To say that a child has to be tested to prove you are teaching more capably than public school is reasonable and protects the child’s future from parents who aren’t good teachers.”
When public schools are able to help all their students pass all their own tests then maybe you will have point but maybe not. Homeschoolers chose to homeschool because many of them have other ideas about what is important to learn than the progressives. Time not stupid tests will tell who is correct. Do not pretend that with the beatings very vividly recorded that your progressive schools will not have many more former students bearing an even more dismal testimony against the public schools than some home schooled girl who is angry at her mother. Furthermore, it is just stupid to allow the competition to judge what they compete against. No conflict of interest there right ,wild? You will not destroy homeschooling with one girl who has stupidly allowed herself to get in the middle of a feud between her father’s twin and her own Mother.

Wildtalents, I am most definitely not wrong. Public schools in most places try to warehouse special education students . For most people using lawyers to bully public schools into appropriately educating disabled children is not only expensive and time consuming but could result in public schools taking petty revenge on the disabled child. Most parents love their children and want the best for their children even their disabled children the same cannot be said for public school teachers. You can read what public school teachers have to say about disabled children on other web sites. Only a fool would want most public school teachers within a hundred yards of most disabled children. Homeschooling protects disabled children from bullies both adult and children. Homeschooling also protects the disabled from people who set artificially low limits on what the disabled can achieve.
Private schools in Texas owe the state nothing. Homeschools in Texas count as private schools hence they are not and should not be accountable to the public schools. The story is about a Homeschool in Texas so what happens in California really does not apply to this case.

To wild talents,
The public schools or the NEA cannot do the testing on homeschoolers. They have blatant conflict of interest. Something tells me you do not want homeschoolers putting together a panel to create a literacy test on Math, Reading and Writing to be given by only homeschool approved proctors. I have news for you plenty of psychologists now homeschool so creating fair tests for all home school students(including the disabled) would not be hard for the homeschool community. The majority of Homeschoolers can pass any fair test of literacy at a far greater rate than the poor souls trapped in public schools. The progressives are flat out evil for demanding homeschoolers pony up the money to prove that homeschooling is a success when the government knows that its own schools are a failure with all but the richest, whitest, and most able bodied of all students. No way in He** should progressives who work in the public schools be allowed to test homeschoolers or private schooled children.

There is a bigger problem here the girl is a runaway and someone is harboring her. So there is more to the story than the parents are bad teachers. A wedge was created and the girl knew if she ranaway someone would take her. The Uncle has a feud with the family over the business but I would not put it past progressives to use a young girl against her parents.
Also whoever is harboring her is giving her bad educational advice. She is old enough to take one of two tests Ged and a simpler test which Texas will recognize in lieu of a public high school diploma. All sorts of civic groups and religious groups offer free classes which are designed to help people pass those tests in a short time frame. However putting a seventeen year old in ninth was a good way to make both her and her parents look stupid.

Public schools do not teach all that. I am also sorry to bear bad news but most public school children are not prepared for a University degree. University students really need higher math or they are lost. One of the biggest weed out classes in college and University is College Algebra. Most students fail that class. Which means even non stem degrees are out of the reach of many young people.

Why are we pretending that the daughter of philistines would have been better off in public schools. Most parents went the homeschooling route to insure there kids would not be ignored. Those people do not sound like they would have wasted the effort to fight for the girl’s education which means she would have got none. At least the girl made it to seventeen without getting knocked up. If the public school had her she probably would have become pregnant at thirteen.

I doubt the parents would have made the children do homework IF they are as bad as their eldest daughter is painting them. The public schools really do not have much success with the children whose parents do not give a flying fig about Reading ,Writing and Arithmetic. I am not sure what you hope to gain by warehousing such children in public schools. The public schools have enough children from bad families ;they bring out the worst in each other.

Some homeschoolers have learning disabilities so the answer is no on testing of home school students. Homeschools are private schools as such the government should have no control over them. The girl will not be the first child to disagree with her parents educational philosophy. She needs to stop assuming all parents who homeschool are like her own. She is free to make other choices for her own children.

If they really cared where is the class action lawsuit against all the public schools who are sending people like Rachel Jeantel into the world?

Many students graduate from public school unable to read their diplomas especially in a border town. There are many trades which require at most a ninth grade education. If the lady really wants a good job she is two semesters from obtaining one from a community college. However ,whoever is advising the young lady is more interested in using the young lady to attack all people who teach their children at home than they are in really helping her become independent.Illegals are able to pass the GED and if they are not Texas has a simpler test for people who want to test out of high school. The people who put the seventeen year old in high school are well aware that there are other options. They did that only to make the girl look more illiterate than she really is. The girl needs to get away from her supposed helpers and go back to her parents. The parents have a stake in her future the idiots using the girl clearly do not.
 November 2, 2015 at 7:39pm
I read the article. She did not apply to a college not even comunity college. The oldest daughter ran away at seventeen. She applied to a public high school and was put in ninth grade. A public school would try that with any student who did not have a transcript.
Whoever is counseling the oldest daughter is misleading her. She is seventeen and old enough to take the GED or an equivalent test. There are plenty of night classes offered especially in a border town.When she passes then she can attend a community college.

“Kids aren’t property like farm animals. They have rights of their own.”
Not in most public schools. In public schools they are treated exactly farm animals. They are even herded around like farm animals.

Compare apples to apples. I bet California has a lower population of minorities who are catching the majority of sexually transmitted diseases than Texas or Arkansas.
November 2, 2015 at 5:40pm
Difference is the taxpayer foots the bill unlike when a private school or homeschool fails to teach.
 November 2, 2015 at 5:01pm
Public school supporters expect you to ignore Rachel Jeantel who is not an isolated case at all and punish homeschoolers because not all homeschooled children are scholarly.
