Law restricts what homeschooled kids can be taught

I wonder how they are going to make the distinction between school time and family time. I can see this law giving them all kinds of problems. I don't think you should be running around town or in a public school insulting gays but people have a right to their own opinion and to say what they want especially in their home.

I don't think there should be restrictions on what they're taught but at the same time I don't think the education should be weighed the same as an education earned at a public school.

Yeah, I was thinking along the same lines. I wouldn't care what homeschooled kids are taught. They could potentially be taught some awesome things that public school systems don't get to or they can be taught that certain kinds of people are inherently wrong.

But it's their problem when that kid goes out into the world and finds out that some of the things he learned at home aren't exactly welcomed or acknowledged by his peers.

Hysterical. Those that haven't really researched how homeschooling works have no clue how superior the education is to public education. A designee working for the government does not make a teacher better than one's own parent.

Back on topic: Canada's government collects a lot in taxes spends a lot of money to "improve" and "run" the lives of their citizens. Slowly the citizens will be indebted and slowly the citizens will be obligated to mind them as a child mindss their parent.

Two questions.

One, what if the parent is a troglodyte? Two, you are able to say that people need to adequately research how homeschooling works but then avoid supporting your opinion with evidence. So in short, evidence please? Please educate us, do not preach.

And how do you not see this in happening in America already? Why even reference Canada when we have things like the Patriot Act and what was going to be SOPA? Americans have been monitored for a long time now and acting all surprised and offended at newer legislation just shows a lack of attention. Not to mention, you have once again failed to support your statements with facts, can you please provide proof of this happening in Canada?

Merc, how about you disprove my statements with evidence. Did you have anymore to add about this new Canadian law? Socialist nations want to run what their citizens think. w/w/w.d*u*h.com

Shel,

When you make a statement, the burden of truth falls on you, not the people questioning it. This is the basic idea since it's not intelligent nor effective to share what you claim are facts without proof or at least without evidence prepared.

Being welcomed or acknowledged by their peers is irrelevant, passing college entrance exams. Those that are homeschooled statistically do just as well if not better than public-school educated students.

This is the slippery slope in action. There have been pastors in Canada fined for speaking and writing what the Bible says about homosexuality. Stephen Boisson is one. He wrote a letter to the editor and was hit with a $5000 fine plus his legal fees and ruining his name:
Canada Orders Pastor to Renounce His Faith | Catholic Exchange

This isn't about homosexuality. This is about Canada and America moving closer to 1984. Its about what happens when anyone speaks something that the Thought Police don't approve of. A guy had his career flushed down the toilet because he wrote "Chink in the Armor" even though everyone understood it was a simple mistake and nobody got offended.
