Inspection Of Homeschooling

"Education is first and foremost the duty of the parent rather than the state.... Parents may delegate this educational responsibility to those whom they trust, but this delegation in no wise removes their responsibility for the education of their children.

In other words, Badman has his priorities reversed. It is not that homeschoolers should submit to education authorities - it is that, if parents choose to send their children to a collective school, rather than educate them at home, the school must still educate them according to the wishes and direction of the parents. The teacher is in loco parentis."
