The home-schooling boom is getting a new push due to opposition to Common Core, the controversial national education standard that some parents claim is using their children’s public school lessons to push a political agenda, according to critics of the Washington-backed curriculum.
North Carolina, already a home-schooling hotbed, saw a 14 percent rise last year in the number of students being educated at home, according to a report from Heartlander Magazine. Similar increases have been seen in Virginia, California and New York, according to education activists.
“If you look at national, and even state polls, you can see that the more familiar people become with Common Core, the more they dislike it,” Bob Lubke, a senior policy analyst for the North Carolina-based Civitas Institute, told FoxNews.com. “They feel like they are losing control of what their kids are learning.”
The exact number, as calculated using Common Core standard math, is: 7 oranges divided by feelings times Oprah, carry the ferret.
Enjoy the option to home school while you can, people. You can safely bet that the Nanny State Über Alles progressives will be coming for your children soon, which is one of about a thousand reasons they need to be stopped.
