Schools across the country have been closed for over a month and many, if not all, are not going back into session this spring. This, normally, would pose a big problem for parents who are working and need to figure out child care arrangements.
However, most parents are also at home due to the coronavirus pandemic. This brings up a question of what is the best thing kids could be doing right now? Is it playing video games all day? Could it be learning? This would be a great opportunity for parents to get a real idea of how well and what their child is learning.
A professor of Law at Harvard and Director of their program at their child advocacy legal clinic claims homeschooling is too dangerous.
The professor thinks that homeschooling is a 'threat to children's rights'.
claims homeschooling is a threat to children’s rights, a method of promoting white supremacy, and a drain on democratic society — and even goes so far as to suggest a national “presumptive ban” on the practice.
Professor Elizabeth Bartholet claims that kids being homeschooled today are "an eventual, if not active, breeding ground for racism, sexism, and isolationism." One problem she discusses is that kids question science. Isn't that what science is? Where would we be if nobody ever questioned the first experiment?
Bartholet refers to homeschooling as an 'unregulated regime' and, even worse than that, these kids are likely religious and have Christian held beliefs.
Oh, the horror!
These are the people in charge of higher education in the United States. These are the minds influencing your kids at school.
What do you think? Should you have the right to teach your kids at home? Do you homeschool your kids to isolate them from being part of a productive society, or is there another reason?
