Absolutely. Unfortunately, you still have to PAY for public schools. But if you and millions like you take your kids out of public schools, we reach a tipping point, because schools get paid according to how many kids they "teach" (ironic quotes). Already, one million kids are homeschooled. We need to get that number up to 10 million.

Actually, they apparently are paid for the number of students who attend daily. That is why attendance records are crucial for them.

When I was a kid, my parents made pancakes in various shapes: Clowns, wagons, Mickey Mouse.

My mother may have made a gun-shaped pancake for me once. If not, certainly my father did.

According to the latest “thinking” amongst “educators,” that gun-shaped pancake was child abuse.

And they should know. They are in the child abuse business.

The latest nonsense from our public school establishment is a certain hysterical over-reaction to guns. Not violence as such, but the mere image of guns. Take the recent case...
