  1. And 95% of them will get elected again in 2017. Time for civil disobedience. At this point it is our only salvation. Parents need to stand up and do whatever they need to do to get their kids out of the system while they still can. Believe me they ARE coming after home school but that we have the power to stop but only if enough parents stand together. Sadly though they would do more to get free tickets to a football game than take the steps to get their kids out of the system. I know not 100% can do it but it would only take 25% to implode the system. I say we start with boycott public school week. And then a month. Etc. Etc. ESSA is unconstitutional and the states should refuse to follow it but they won’t.

    1. Making plans now to homeschool my 5&6 graders. They are in their final moments of the gov’t contred public school system! Can’t believe so many parents are so unconcerned.

      1. You and your children are the salvation of the future of this country. Thanks so much. Parents that take this step are the heroes of this movement. Your children will thank you. I have gotten so many people to pull their kids and not one has said they were sorry they did it. Most say they are sorry they didn’t start sooner. The family becomes so close and much less stress. No more running around doing homework, packing lunches. You do home school whenever and where ever is convenient. Want to take a vacation in March……no prolem. GOOD LUCK and God bless you!!! If I can be of any help please feel free to reach out. karen.bracken@reagan.com
