I disagree. Parents are responsible for sending to school, ready and able to learn. It is a low threshold-- listen to the teacher, obey the teacher, do the work assigned. If not done, parents should administer the proper punishment, so that the next day it IS done.

Parents are supposed to be the monitors.
I understand the sentiment, and I agree that we should let the liberal programs self-destruct as conservatives stand ready to replace them with an appropriate conservative response. I recoil a bit at the idea of "reveling" or enjoying the process too much. Gloating is not becoming. I don't like the appearance of "spiking the football." To continue the sports analogy, let's act like we've been here before. Which we have.
"To knowingly mislead is to lie," the article states. Actually it is worse than that. Much worse. To knowingly misstate a fact, intending that others rely upon it is FRAUD.

I have a minor objection to your post. "If you can't read" should be "If you refused to learn to read when that opportunity was given to you..."

Dr. Williams omits this consideration: Where would these athletes be but for an unearned admission to college? Many of those we are talking about (the truly unqualified, as opposed to those who are only marginally qualified) come from deeply troubled circumstances. These athletes are given an opportunity to see what academic effort, knowledge and thinking can provide for a person. They are spared, at least for the 4-5 years of eligibility, the poverty that those from where they came endure. Some even go on to professional sports, where they are amazingly well paid. Some defy the odds and succeed in college, even in difficult areas of study. Others major in recreation administration and the AFAM department studies. So, while there are flaws in the program, they are, in my view, net benefits to the recipients of colleges' largesse.

Some otherwise Good Women may have abortions, but it is not abortions that make them "Good."

And why lesbians would be so concerned about abortion is truly unfathomable. How often do they impregnate each other?
And without suggesting that they are in any way equivalent, if your are opposed to murder, then don't kill anyone. If you are opposed to gambling (which is illegal in most states, with the exception of the lottery), then don't gamble. Your argument reduces law to meaninglessness.
We still prohibit marriage between (among) certain people, despite their "choice." Siblings and parent/child cannot marry. Groups of 3 or more cannot marry. Since we are throwing out the concept of conceiving and raising children as part of the consideration of marriage, we can avoid the distasteful image of physical intimacy between those who might wish to marry. So what are the limits, and what is the logical basis for those limits?
