Beware the homeschoolers!
Worse than robbing us blind, homeschoolers will kill us all!
From World Net Daily:
Adam Lanza, 20, has been described as being “dark and disturbed” before his death. He coldly murdered his own mother in their expensive home near Newtown, Connecticut. Then he took her legally registered guns to the nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School and shot and killed 20 children and six adults. Then he took a handgun and shot himself.
Reports say he suffered from Asperger’s syndrome, “or a personality disorder.” And he “had a tortured mind.”
The New York Daily News said he exhibited “strange behavior” and his “antics irked several residents.”
Now a state commission of 16 educators, local and state officials and behavioral experts assembled by Gov. Dannel Malloy after the tragedy has a game plan to prevent future occurrences.
According to a report in EAG News, a chief recommendation coming out of the state panel that was “charged” with “making recommendations to reduce the risk of future tragedies” has concluded that more oversight of homeschoolers will accomplish that goal.
The report’s “chief recommendation” is “tighter scrutiny of homeschoolers … to prevent an incident such as the December 2012 slaughter of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Elementary School in Newtown,” EAG said.
This is so nuts I want to say it is unbelievable. But really it is only surprising in that it is so clichéd. How can these people be so shameless in their cultural program of taking over everything?
Adam Lanza was in institutional schooling for ten out of twelve years. Since his student records are sealed, we are all at a complete disadvantage in figuring out what happened in Lanza’s life. My guess would be that he was abused at some point (nothing more than a guess). But we will never know.
This proposal is every bit as dangerous as any of the gun banning that has been pushed in response to the Sandy Hook massacre. Proposals for behavioral screening are completely un-American.
And they are entirely unwarranted. Homeschooling has an unambiguous record of turning out graduates who are far, far less likely to commit violent crime than public school graduates. It is completely unscientific to pretend an outlier like Adam Lanza shows that homeschooling is a threat to life and limb in the community.
It is all just a palpable lie to increase state control over everyone. Connecticut is going to try to set a precedent for other states. Welcome to Amerika.
