I applaud Ron Paul.
Ditto.

Congrats to your daughters
We home schooled our son post elementary grades and what a difference.
Same annual testing and exemplary academic results as yours.

Column: How home schooling threatens monopoly education

"voting with their feet and abandoning traditional public schools...
Some are leaving for private schools.
But many others are going another step beyond traditional education,
and switching to online school or even pure homeschooling."

"it's not just "scary religious people." In fact, rather than scary,
those religious people are looking more like trendsetters. A recent piece in The Atlantic
told of purely secular parents' decision to take their kids out of New York public schools
and home school instead"

"Does this mean the end of public education? No. But,...
Smarter educators will start thinking about how to update a 19th Century product
to suit 21st Century realities.
Less-smart educators will hunker down and fight change tooth and nail."

Home schoolers unite
We are growing in numbers FAST

Just because someone posts something you disagree with doesn't make that person a troll.

But typical of the conservative close mindedness - don't like what someone says so you call them a "troll."

Besides, I believe calling another poster a "troll" is a violation of the TOS.

Am I the only one who feels that Ron Paul is like a weird, creepy cult leader? Come on people, drink the Kool-Aid. Just drink the Kool-Aid.

Thank god this guy will never be president. We'd be in real trouble.

You're not the only one. I've always thought he was weird and creepy.

I've listened to him speak and could never understand the appeal.

Many kids make lemonade from lemons and sell it, where not prohibited by law.
