Remember a couple of weeks ago when I took at jab at Michael Farris and HSLDA for touting their influence in Republican politics?
I quote myself.
Publicity is not good for homeschooling. We are better off flying under the radar. The less the establishment knows about us, the better. As a small band of fringe wackos, we are no threat to anybody. When you start boasting about placing 7 interns in the White House, you might as well cackle as you proclaim that your evil plan is coming to fruition.
The CS Monitor managed to fit the terms “captive audience” and indoctrination into the article. I hate it when I’m right. The CS Monitor might not be the establishment, but they are generally supportive of HS’ing so the tone of this article is a change. The tone is not completely negetive. They do get quotes from both sides. However, on first read I got a “this is a problem vibe” from the article. Anybody else get that vibe too?
Note: I’m not saying I agree with the article. What I think about this is not material. My point is that Farris, in his quest for personal political influence, is a threat to all our homeschooling freedoms.
