In an editorial titled Why aren’t you homeschooling?, Jim Willson, who writes for the Hernando, Mississippi DeSoto Times-Tribune, began with this pronouncement:
“Do you truly know what schools are teaching your children? If I wagered a guess, 9 out of 10 parents do not. The only sure way to know is to educate your children yourself. Before last month, I would have said that homeschooling was a wonderful educational option for any family; it is rewarding for both the child and the parent. Based on what I saw a few weeks ago, I no longer feel that any parent, concerned about the education of their children, can consider homeschooling optional. I now believe homeschooling is essential to both the survival of the American way of life and family values.”
