They’re ba-ack . . .
The ultraliberal scholars of “HomeSchooling Let’s Don’t Allow.” (so that’s what HSLDA stands for in their dogma!)

So what we seem without better data to have here, is simply more white men demanding the power to Decide for everybody.
What difference does it make to me loving my own family at home in guaranteed freedom from all of them, just desiring to be left out of their Grand Plan for Global Domination, whether megalomaniacal men are liberal or conservative or communist or fascist, atheist or Southern Baptist or Jewish or Mormon or Muslim — if what they’re peddling drags us all down to the same place, servility to their agenda rather than freedom to set our own course and laugh in their frowning faces?
I’ll continue to resist and mock Reich and Apple, preferring Howard Gardner’s real education scholarship and power of story research on effective change and leadership, oh and Richard Florida’s creative class political thinking about SQUELCHERS:
The way to foster creativity … is to encourage everyone to have a voice, to feel comfortable offering their own quirky opinions, even the weirdoes, the nerds and those in the minority.
They’ll be encouraged as long as what he calls the “squelchers” are kept in check. These are the naysayers, the guardians of the status quo.
