    I'm talking about the US at large. The majority of the population uses far more advanced information... and a lot more of it than folks in the 1700's

    I know you agree on that but I get super annoyed at detractors, it makes me boil.
    No one has presented anything that says a child, educated at home, is of a lesser quality.
    I posted some a long time ago. I'd have to go look for it. It wasn't conclusive from what I recall. Methodologically, there were a lot of flaws. Just like in schools, I think some children, educated at home do very well, and some do not. I have my own reasons, from observations and from my overall theory of what types of education schools provide that lead me to not be a fan of homeschooling. From what I remember of the data I produced, the results were inconclusive.

    He now home schools his new family as a Fundy homophobic Muslim bigot.

    How many from either camp are out there legally poisoning there children's minds.
    As long as he is not breaking the law, it's no ones business but his own.

    As long as the kid can past the tests assigned by the state, no need to get yet ANOTHER DCFS type org involved in family life.

    The smart people are still the smart people and the not so smart are still the lower classes. That has not changed and it never will.

    Even though those who are not as smart, STILL have require the use of far more information than our founders did.

    I wasn't in a foul mood, particularly, though I noticed the tone of my posts could appear this way. My apologies. I was doing some complex moderation at the same time and I think it seeped over into my posts. Nothing towards you or Harry. Tough week, too.

    I agree it does, but a lawyer then is much the same as a lawyer now etc. The amount of information has little to do with the aptitude or ability of the founders to think critically.

    That I would agree with. However, what they have to know to BE a lawyer, has change.

    I'm guessing they will.

    No. The good old principle of he is not doing anything illegal.

    Huge difference between "don't ask don't tell" and it's none of your business.
