Root speaks out on homeschooling

Libertarian vice presidential nominee Wayne Allyn Root is issuing this press release:

Government Should Leave Home Schooling Families Alone, Says Wayne Allyn Root

Henderson, NV — “There is no more important task for a parent than the education of one’s children. That could mean sending them to something like these private schools in houston, or a school closer to home. That responsibility belongs to parents, not the government,” insists Wayne Allyn Root, the Libertarian Party candidate for vice president. “As a home school parent myself, I know how important it is for government to not interfere in the education process.”If you’re thinking of homeschooling your child, it’s important to make sure you have the right furniture in your home, for example, take a look at these wooden coffee tables.

There are loads of great things that can come from being able to home school your child. For example, you are then able to help focus on the subjects that the child wants to progress in. Furthermore, when your children are older there are loads of things online to help them get into the career that they want, for example, you could check out this site that help you with Trades You Can Learn in 6 Months or Less, it all depends on what job your child wants to go into. But home schooling can still help them get the education they need as well.

Yet the city of Washington, D.C. has issued new regulations that for the first time in 15 years anywhere in America increase government control over home-schooling. “Given the abysmal job performed by the District public schools, the D.C. government should be encouraging, not discouraging home schooling,” says Root. “It is the height of arrogance for this school system with its poor performance to sit in judgment over the quality of parental instruction.”

Home schoolers also have been under attack in California, Root observes, where a court recently ruled against home school parents, declaring that there is no constitutional right to home school. However, he notes, “the U.S. Supreme Court once blocked a state attempt to outlaw private schools, explaining that ‘the child is not the mere creature of the state.’ That principle is equally valid for home schooling.”

“The good news in California,” Root adds, “is that the state has dropped its action against the home schooling family. But the state legislature still should act to protect the fundamental right of parents to educate their own children. The D.C. city council should do the same,” he says.

“There may be no better example as to how government has outgrown its original role than the fact that many people now believe education to be not a family, not a local, and not a state responsibility, but a federal responsibility. That’s entirely wrong,” says Root. “There may be no more important liberty than the right to care for one’s own family, including to ensure the proper education of one’s children. Bob Barr and I are dedicated to promoting that right in our campaign for president and vice president.”

Wayne Root and his wife Debra home school their 4 young children. Wayne is the first home school father on a Presidential ticket in modern history.

    Wayne is the first home school father on a Presidential ticket in modern history.

    Someone pointed out at TPW that the Constitution Party’s Peroutka home schooled his kids.

    Root also claimed at the convention that he’d be the first “major party” Jewish presidential candidate, yet I was informed that Andre Marrou was Jewish.

    I’m not sure on either of those factoids, but Root should be, if he issues such “I’m the first” statements.

    Root doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy to let the facts ruin a good soundbite.

    THIS WORKS FROM SPECIAL ED TO POST GRAD, ED REHAB AND MORE

    In a world where they put a man on the moon before they put wheels on suitcases, the same strange mind set still holds amazingly true with writing. Remember the dread of a report? Essays, for example, are really easy to write. Check out the following:

    FREE AUTOMATED INFORMATION ORGANIZATION PROGRAM

    http://www.TheEasyEssay.coma free site, can teach almost anyone how to logically organize a proof format (as an essay, speech, business memo etc,) for any fact, concept or idea in 5 minutes.

    http://www.TheEasyEssay.comuses an automated information organization program. It has been taught to 7 year olds, LD students, Special Education classes, in high schools or for home schooling, for basic expository writing, as prep for the SAT, FCAT and the ACT, as well as a college class and for post graduate work. It has been used for interoffice communications, speech writing, and business, technical and scientific reports. The program can even be used for educational rehabilitation purposes.

    Our concept is based on our belief that in most conversations, the majority of the conversation deals with one person telling the other person why something is true; that is, giving reasons for its validity. That is all that we ask you to do on this site, except in writing. We use the essay form because it is the most efficient form of organization available and we automate the organization so that you limit your statements to proving only the things that you have already stated were true.

    For those with no information available, the thesis, or main idea you are going to prove, is linked to Google® to help begin your accumulation of that information (then we show you, very simply, how to prove said fact or idea).

    http://www.TheEasyEssay.comappears to have excellent educational rehabilitation benefits especially for stroke and TBI patients in that it’s logical, color coded, repetitive functions lead one to believe that it aids in efforts for retraining and for reopening neural pathways.

    It can be taught to a varied group of individuals at the same time and each will learn to his or her own unique capacity. The Easy Essay is easy enough for the user to learn the process and make the use of the automated portion of the program unnecessary in situations where a computer is not at hand or if a teacher wants to make sure his/her students understand the process.

    For longer papers it can automatically expand into a 17 paragraph thesis.

    The Easy Essay is usable in any language.

    A noted side effect of the program is that users begin to communicate logically.

    http://www.TheEasyEssay.comis free because we feel it is too important to charge for.

    If you are an educator, administrator, medical practitioner, businessperson, etc. and find the program as effective as I believe it to be, please pass this information on to the media so that the site can get more publicity and help more people.

    We would appreciate any feedback (use the “Contact Us” section of the site) but in any case:

    PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO WHERE EVER IT CAN HELP.
