Every wonder why home schooling is becoming so popular?

This is a blatant and egregious attempt to control and politicize the educational system even more than it is now. I was fortunate to get a very good education during the years when the "core curriculum" consisted of the "3 R's" plus the history (unedited) of our country. We must fight back against the ultimate "mind-control" of our young people and promote achievement and the exceptionalism of our country rather than government control which is deadly to the continued progress of any country.

I feel sorry that all those 'graduates' ataxpayer mentioned are living at home because their education has left them so utterly unprepared. The Public School system has managed to drive out skill, ambition, creativity and the desire to succeed...and people wonder why all these kids boomerang back home, after they get out of 'school', to live in Mom's cellar.

I truly feel sorry for new college graduates under this administration. 41% of them who graduated in the last two years are underemployed and working in jobs that did not require a college degree and 44% of the 2011 and 2012 graduates are still living with their parents.

Why should they worry?? For what they get paid they should be on the A list.

Just like the dog theory, make the territory... get everything marked as his. We have seen his success rate at all the other markings... can't wait to wash all of them clean from his scent.

Obviously "higher" not "hire".

How about a system that uses "outcomes" as the prime criteria? Schools that lead to jobs who create working citizens would be rated hire than those who provide a place to hide for non-working entitlements addicts.

That being said, I would like to be among the first to welcome liberal Academia to the liberal/progressive chopping block from which you are no longer immune. Now go complain to Obama, nobody else. Yup, welcome to what you asked for.

More Government control. More govt. picking of winners and losers. Is this the opening salvo on the progressive 'War on Big Education'? Holy cow, wait until this gets to the faculty lounge, womens studies, global warming and advanced apathy will quickly go to the back burner. Academia thought they were safe in upholding progressive values in their hallowed halls, they're not.
