Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

The NEA v. Homeschooling:

The NEA again made its animosity against homeschoolers loud and clear. The resolution against homeschooling demanded that all instruction be given by teachers licensed by the state education licensure agency, and that the curriculum be approved by the state department of education. The NEA also took the position that homeschooled students should not be allowed to participate in any extracurricular activities in public schools (even though their parents pay the same school taxes that public school students' parents pay)

What exactly does this organization have against homeschooling? Shouldn't an organization named the National Education Organization strive to educate the children of this country in the best possible manner, with the best possible results? From the events of the meeting, the answer seems to be no. In fact, the agenda is not one of educating, but one of ensuring that the teachers' union maintains a monopoly on educating the masses. The name should really be changed to the National Public School Teachers' Union.
