“Government schools are run by people who think they care about the children. But present a schoolteacher or administrator with the bill for a single semester of college tuition, and see how fast they backpedal from any thought of actually being committed to that child.” Is this supposed to mean something?
“But long before it comes time for college, a child’s education is critically dependent on parental support of the child’s education and educators. So a child lacking in home support won’t come out of school with much of an education in any event.” Absolutely correct. Most of the failures in public schooling is because 70% of the Black students have no father at home. These Welfare families rarely have any educational success not because the schools are broken but because the families are broken.
“Sending a child to government school is the path of least resistance for the parent.” In most cases it is because parents are aware they cannot do the job as well as people who are trained to do it. Simple division of labor.
“So homeschooling isn’t neglect but its opposite.” For the vast majority of cases you are correct BUT I wasn’t speaking about them but the cases where people CLAIM to be home-schooling but are NOT.
My comment was in no way directed at parents who are REALLY trying to home school.
The fact is socialized schooling is an entitlement program bigger than Medicare and at least as big as Social Security. The arguments for socialized schooling are the same as the arguments for socialized medicine. They are equally as bogus too.
People who put their kids in the socialized school system are having their lifestyles subsidized by others. They are feeding at the public trough. Most dont like to have that pointed out, but facts are facts.
We need to do away with socialized schooling and replace it with a capitalist system.

The intended meaning is blindingly obvious - any parent worthy of the name is far more involved with each of his/her children than any teacher not related to a child in his/her class can be with the children in his/her charge. In school, the children come and go, replaced by others who do the same. In the home, they come and stay, in the hearts of his/her parents, for the remainder of the parents' lifetime.A child must have someone who is crazy about him/her. A mother is only as happy as her least successful child. A teacher is a pale substitute for a parent in that respect.
