The Mississippi legislature has a resolution before it to recognize the state’s “unwavering” support for home schooling with House Concurrent Resolution 77 which states:
A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING MISSISSIPPI’S UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION IN THE DESIGNATION OF THE WEEK OF MAY 11-15, 2009, AS MISSISSIPPI HOME EDUCATION WEEK IN THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI.
Let us be honest home schooling for the most part is attempted because the parents do not want their children mixing with minorities or other religious teachings. It is a form of racism.
The resolution spotlights the home schooling of Geo. Washington and Patrick Henry…thinking…it was in a frontier area and the early 18th century, there was about 4 schools in the Colonies and home schooling was about the only way to be educated. But the most ludicrous example was Booker T. Washington….the man was born in slavery and they were not ALLOWED to be educated….so home schooling was the only option his family had.
There is a good reason that home schooling in Mississippi should be recognized and that is that the educational programs in Mississippi suck wind. instead of making the hime schooling sound more noble than it is, maybe they should use it as a way to justify improving education in the state.
