I routinely listen to podcasts while I am on a run and yesterday listened to one on the deregulation of homeschooling. First off, this thread is not about whether parents should be able to home school or not. Homeschooling is largely a First Amendment issue, so if you want to debate that, then start a thread on it. Instead this is a question of whether there should be any minimal restrictions on who can home school. For example, in the majority of states there are no restrictions preventing any of the following from homeschooling their kids:
Convicted Sex Offenders
Convicted Child Abusers
Parents that lack a high school diploma.
So the question is, do you think there should be any such restrictions on parents that choose to home school? The NPR podcast is here if you are interested: The deregulation of homeschooling? | Radio Times | WHYY
