I wrote a blog on our family blogspot that specifically addresses my thoughts on association of freedom and learning. Basically, it's really a rant about homeschooling requirements that we have in TN. I've been looking into it and came across the requirements. All the requirements are put in place as attempts to keep things within the schooling/education box. I think the requirements are silly but it is the law in the area. Seriously, less govt in our children's lives, the better. We do not need the mandates of 'you need to do all this or else you're not eligible to compulsorily teach your children'. No, nobody is truly has the right to force the kids to learn, but anyone can do that. No degree necessary to shove a math book in front of a kid and say, "you have an hour to finish this or else".
Anyway, this says it all.
Freedom is Earned?
