Forced Government Indoctrination

In California, it is now essentially illegal to homeschool your children. This is a horrible decision. I think this quote from the judge sums it up nicely:

"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," the judge wrote, quoting from a 1961 case on a
similar issue.

We don't need government indoctrination in order to protect the public welfare. Of course, the teachers' unions are rejoicing in this decision.
