Excerpt of an interview with Judy Aron Research Director for the National Home Education Legal Defense http://www.nheld.com
Are public schools fixable?
Yes. Here is what I think has to be done: Get rid of union control. Get rid of government mandates. Get the psychologists and psychiatric community out of the school system. Get rid of tenure. Put a cap on the amount spent on attorney fees for the schools. Do not allow unlimited legal proceedings against families who are just trying to do the right thing for their kids.
