CANDIDATE STATEMENT


1.  Do you support or oppose requiring families who home educate to register their children with either the state or their local public school district?

Oppose

2.  Do you support or oppose requiring all children taught at home to take standardized achievement tests each year?

Oppose

3.  What other requirements, if any, would you favor as a condition of a parent’s right to teach his or her children at home?

None

4.  Other comments that you wish to make on the subject of home education:

Government, at any level, has no business getting involved in education.  Parents have the right and the responsibility to teach their children.  As a home educator, I have great respect for others who choose to home educate their children.

Public education is the 10th plank of the Communist Manifesto.  The Idaho Constitution needs to be amended to remove all language about education.  Public schools can be transitioned to the private sector, both K-12 and higher education.  All educational laws should be repealed and the taxes used to support public education can be eliminated.
