Op-Ed: School shootings are no reason to attack home schooling
School shootings are tragedies and should be mourned, not politicized. Unfortunately, leaders in the two old parties seem unable to comprehend this basic truth.
Raising and educating your own children is a right, not a privilege; yet the commission suggests requiring the state’s approval to educate your own children, and that this approval be revoked at the state’s discretion.
Home schooling is not the cause of school shootings, and your children are not the property of the state. This is only understood by the Libertarian Party, not the intellectually bankrupt older parties.
If this suggestion becomes law, any state legislator who votes in favor should expect to face a Libertarian challenger and to answer for their actions in the court of public opinion.
Joshua A. Katz is the chair of the Libertarian Party of Connecticut, a member of the party’s national board, and an elected Planning Commissioner in Westbrook.
