Kerry McDonald – Cato Homeschooling Debate Debriefing [PODCAST #661]

Play

Kerry McDonald is back to discuss her appearance at and lessons from Cato's recent event called Homeschooling: Protecting Freedom, Protecting Children. Kerry came Zoom-face to Zoom-face with Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Bartholet, who authored the controversial Arizona Law Review paper attacking homeschoolers and called for a "presumptive ban" on their educational way of life.

Kerry's Take-Aways:
- There Are People Who Believe the State Should Be Your Co-Parent
- Random Home Visits Will Be a Weapon of the State
- Private Education Is in Danger
- State Standardized Testing Begs the Question: Whose Standard?
- Homeschoolers Will Win
