Liberal-Progressive Fears Of Educational Options And Opportunities

-
Roanoke Times, 2-13-12, Pg 10: Editorial: Bending The Rules For Home-Schoolers
Virginia House of Delegates and Senate Bill HB947 strips away public schools’ ability to deny home-schoolers a spot on a sports team.
-
Why is this a bad thing? Why are we discriminating against some of our children?
-
The Editorial Girls at the Roanoke Times have totally come out of their left-wing union education-closet and declared war on parents’ having educational options or alternatives for their children.
The Editorial starts with a rant against Tim Tebow for being a home-schooler who was allowed to play ball in the public schools in Florida. This is their example of a bad thing?
-
Our public school education system is broken!
We need to explore all options and alternatives to help our children be all they can be!
All children should be welcome to ride the school bus, play in the bands, participate in the Governors’ Schools, use the libraries and computers and play any and all sports offered in the “public school systems”.
 That's why we call it PUBLIC!
-
Apparently the progressive-liberals are afraid of an open and transparent educational system. Afraid that more parents will demand more value and performance from our school systems. At $12,000 of tax money per year per student there is ample opportunity for improvement and competition is a good way to highlight selected opportunities.
-
It’s interesting that the progressive-liberals are big-time supporters of having illegal immigrants attend taxpayer supported public schools and are for special entry and financial help for illegal immigrants to attend secondary education while at the same time exclude American children from tax-supported educational options.
