Homeschool regulation: The revenge of the failures

In their never-ending effort to "help" homeschoolers, public school bureaucrats periodically try to increase homeschooling regulations. This makes K-12 education perhaps a unique endeavor: it's a field in which the failures regularly, and astonishingly, insist that they should be able to regulate the successful.

Bruce- I run a podcast called the LD Podcast- for parents, by parents of children with learning disabilities. We are starting a new podcast called partners in education, a roundtable discussion once (or twice) monthly, where parents, teachers and educators will discuss hot topics in education and try to learn from each others pointof view. We will be doing this by phone "conference call"- would you be interested? If so, please contact me at my email- ldpodcast-at-gmail.com

Of course the failures are trying to regulate.

It's much harder to create equality by raising standards, rather than insisting that everyone fails equally.
