Harvard Professor Wants A ‘Presumptive Ban‘ On Homeschooling, Claiming It Promotes White Supremacy
Harvard Law’s Elizabeth Bartholet emphasizes what her article calls for: “a radical transformation in the homeschooling regime,” a “reframing of constitutional doctrine,” and a “presumptive ban” on homeschooling, with the burden on parents to prove to authorities that they are justified in seeking homeschooling options for their children.

In a shocking essay for Harvard Magazine, a professor of law and director of Harvard Law School’s child advocacy legal clinic, claims homeschooling is a threat to children’s rights, a method of promoting white supremacy, and a drain on democratic society — and even goes so far as to suggest a national “presumptive ban” on the practice.
Harvard is playing host to a “homeschooling summit,” slated to take place (at least digitally) June 18-19, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation. But Harvard’s concern isn’t so much whether homeschooling is a viable, cost-effective, and comfortable method of education for many Americans, but rather whether homeschooling is (and homeschooled children are) a ticking time bomb.
The summit brings together a number of “experts” from across the spectrum to discuss the “problems of educational deprivation and child maltreatment that too often occur under the guise of homeschooling, in a legal environment of minimal or no oversight.”
Prof. Elizabeth Bartholet is leading the charge against those who actively resist public schools and she believes that the generation currently being homeschooled is an eventual, if not active, breeding ground for racism, sexism, and isolationism. More
Why a university professor care this much about homeschooling? Perhaps because parents should be educating their kids and not leaving that main responsibility to deranged leftists? Hmmm…wake up ppl! This should raise serious red flags about our system…

This is nothing but a power grab by the democrats and the teacher’s unions to control what our children are being taught. The slow stripping away of our right to think freely. This is about controlling the masses and what they think.
Another example of real racism living & breathing on the Left. Has someone asked the Professor why he thinks homeschooling is akin to White supremacy? Is it because of the racist belief the Left has that non-Caucasians don’t have a structured home? Or, are incapable of doing so?

Public schools are becoming more about indoctrination and what to think rather than how to think for oneself. Since many homeschool families are Christians, it is also an attack on our religious freedom.
