Pansy at The Federalist

Here is an article about exponential growth of homeschooling in Texas. but the author obviously is as big a staist as the teacher’s unions.

This is what I wrote to him:

Hi Tristan,
I linked to your article through Lewrockwell.com.
I hope this statement doesn’t say that state control and indoctrination is important to you:
“Student absence from brick-and-mortar classrooms however, has given rise to an entire new crisis on its own, where adolescents, particularly those who depend on schools for critical needs such as food and social services, are deprived of important experiences and resources necessary for health development.” 
Every home schooled kid I’ve known has been more informed, more socially adjusted, and had better critical thinking skills than the government schooled. I even know a couple brothers whose parents “home schooled” by totally leaving them alone all day. These guys (married and with children) are a cut above other kids who went to government schools. HL Mencken had a lot to say about this. Also, my wife and I were just discussing what I was saying here. She pointed out some that turned out differently. And then we agreed…. that’s the point.

A friend wrote this:

I agree, Fritz…Tristan’s statement:
“Student absence from brick-and-mortar classrooms however, has given rise to an entire new crisis on its own, where adolescents, particularly those who depend on schools for critical needs such as food and social services, are deprived of important experiences and resources necessary for health development.” 

is purely irresponsible!  And, without merit.  It is the old Party Line about “social adjustment and starving children”.
My parents were poor.  They eventually had 3 children.  I never went without a meal–never.  And never felt hunger.Mother always sent a lunch with me to school.  My parents never failed to tend any illness I had.  I never evencame close to dying.
If Tristan calls smoking and drinking and doing drugs and having sex with various other children part of socialdevelopment–then, yes–I certainly was “deprived of important experiences”.  I never got into fights at school.I always did my school work–BEFORE I played or did anything else.
My parents NEVER depended upon Public School for “critical needs”.  My parents were like the myriad other parentswhose children attended schools with me.  We grew up becoming responsible Citizens–compared with today’schildren who eat at school, socialize at school and protest and riot and create mayhem and curse everyone whoisn’t nasty like they are. 

Today’s college-age children know nothing, own nothing, have no education, and don’t work.  Yet, they supposedly
are so well adjusted that we are supposed to heed their protests and run the Country according to their debauched ideals.
