Judge Walter Croskey 2nd district court of appeals in the decision to ban home schooling in California unless the home schooler has a teaching credential:
“A primary purpose of the educational system is to train school children in good citizenship, patriotism and loyalty to the state and the nation as a means of protecting the public welfare.”
Holy crap people! Did he really write that? Loyalty to the State??
You know, suddenly home schooling doesn't seem so creepy to me anymore.
Here is an essay on the ruling. Here is David Friedman on the quotation.
