Communism 101


Battle Between Government Collectivists and Parents: Parents Face Threat of Fines and Jail Time Over School Attendance, with Children Being Made Wards of the State.

WhatIsCommonCore.WordPress.com - Lately, there’s been quite a buzz about ending compulsory education. Utah Senator Aaron Osmond propelled the idea when he wrote a piece on this subject at the Utah Senate blog. Osmond pointed out that it is a “parental right to decide if and when a child will go to public school,” adding that “in a country founded on the principles of personal freedom and unalienable rights, no parent should be forced by the government to send their child to school under threat of fines and jail time.”

Public education started out as an opportunity, but over the years, turned into a governmentally enforced mandate. The mandate flies in the face of other laws, such at Utah’s FERPA, which asserts that it is the parent, and not the government, who is the primary authority over a child.

That’s just common sense to most of us; in fact, most parents are utterly unaware that there is a battle going on between government “collectivists” and parentsThe idea that parents hold authority over a child is not acceptable to an alarmingly pushy segment of society, who say government should take ownership of children. 

This is, of course, communism.
