Frontispiece to Fireside Education, Samuel Griswold (Goodrich) (from here (

Confinement to home with all schools closed because of COVID-19 opened the door for many parents to homeschool their children. They’re finding it works and works well. Some may continue the practice long after schools reopen in the fall.

Homeschooling raises a real problem for liberals who want all children to be educated in America’s public schools. Period. That way, they have absolute control over what the children are taught, and that according to ‘party line.’

Certainly, our public-school system was started decades ago as a fundamental right for our nation’s children. For a long time, American kids were among the best educated in the world.

More recent data indicate that our children are falling behind compared with their peers in other nations of the world. The STEM curriculum and emphasis is one result of trying to reverse that trend.

  1. The liberals are in a bit of a conundrum.
    They detest homeschooling but have a situation where they don’t want to open the schools.
    In our county, for example, the teacher’s union is lobbying hard to keep the schools closed for the next year.
    They must be under the impression that folks will continue to register with the schools in their districts instead of just branching out and using one of the many other homeschool options…which are comparatively far more flexible.
    If and when this happens (and why wouldn’t it?) teaching jobs will be in big jeopardy.
    These things are all connected, forcing school closures will impact the economy and businesses will close, impacting the property taxes which will impact the school funding.

    1. @Liz

      The fact that teacher’s unions support the shutdown shows how bitterly obstinate Liberal Democrats have become. COVID-19 is not a threat to the children, and most teachers are not over 60, which is when we begin to see a significant risk.

      State and local governments depend upon tax revenues. If the economy crashes, What makes teachers think we will continue to pay their salary and benefits? Class sizes will be increased, and half of them will be laid off. There won’t be any other alternative. If the Federal Government prints a bunch of money, that will just hurt them worst than most. Hyperinflation will render their paycheck worthless.

  2. Sometime in the next few days, I will have to share my homeschooling story. My wife and I have been homeschooling for twenty-five years and retired this month. Our youngest is ready for college. J.
