Recently, The Washington Examiner reported, “Harvard Law Professor Against Home Schooling Forgets To Check Her Class Privilege.”
A Harvard law professor argues that home schooling is a form of authoritarian control but believes forcing all children to go to a government-run school is not.
I wish this statement was a strawman. But it is not. Elizabeth Bartholet, professor of law at Harvard University, advances this exact argument in an interview in the May-June issue of Harvard Magazine.
“The issue is, do we think parents should have 24/7, essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18? I think that’s dangerous,” she contends. “I think it’s always dangerous to put powerful people in charge of the powerless, and to give the powerful ones total authority.”
Let that settle in: A professor of law at Harvard University (endowment $40.9 billion) is deeply concerned about giving the “powerful ones,” everyday parents, “total authority.”
National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison Arkansas, Thomas Robb said, “The Knights Party strongly suggests that White parents DO home-school for various reasons. The Public school systems began to fail our youth when prayer was taken out of them. When Christianity was taken out of our public school systems, that left the door open for what they’ve become today. Our White American heritage and history was first changed, and then removed completely, being labeled as racist. And then, the homosexual agenda was introduced to our youth and taught as normal behavior.
More and more parents throughout the country are recognizing the valuable benefits of home schooling. While Elizabeth Bartholet attempts to demonize parents it is she who is the demon.”
