Harvard Mag’s Snide Attack on Home Schooling Backfires, Didn’t Even Spell ‘Arithmetic’ Right



Harvard Mag's Snide Attack on Home Schooling Backfires, Didn't Even Spell 'Arithmetic' Right

You do know that the deck is stacked against you because you are a schoolboy who has Ivy League aspirations.

Home students at all eight Ivies are underrepresented. Erin O’Donnell will help you understand, if you want to know why.

But your essay in the Harvard Journal will give a little summary of how the American establishment treats the right to school with your own kids. O’Donnell’s mouthpiece is not really official for Ivy Leagues. You’re definitely not shocked to hear that they aren’t fans.

The article comes from the topic of May-June 2020, which was, I am sure, prepared ahead of time before any urgent issues emerged. In any case, “Homeschool Risks” basically makes the child’s curriculum sound as if he was smoking two bags a day of Marlboro Reds — and when he or she hangs with the trendy kids in cigarette breaks, you have at least the socialization.

To be honest, while O’Donnell’s name may be on it, the real focus of the article is Elizabeth Bartholet, a professor of Law from Harvard, who sees the capacity to take care of your own child’s education (or your legal right).

This doesn’t just say, mind you, that your child needs things. Bartholet says she “sees children’s — and society’s — threats at home, and advises the activity be accused of banishment. Home-schooling not only abuses the right of children to “meaningful education” and the right of their children to be shielded from future children’s violence but also can prevent their children from making a significant contribution to a democratic society. I see your child ought to have the right, particularly because it is essentially a driving force for the R Read these words, though, and wonder if you just want to teach your kid in an atmosphere that offers good legal advice.

That is the beginning of a very good bit of elitism as well, because when you are vulnerable or under high blood pressure you might click on the television again – just wait, that’s as awful, so that you can still remain here to hear Bartholet tell you home school children how badly you are screwing your boy up and how much easier it will be if the government pressured you to take him somewhere.

But, first, let’s discuss the original picture of this story: Do you agree that this essay in Harvard Magazine presented a convincing case of home schooling?

Ah, and the Bible too, and as you learn later in the essay, all of those perfidious Christians are eager to send home education to their children. Reading, writing, and arithmatic. The photo was later changed.

In any case, the “arithmatic,” who built up the theory of how home schooling affected democratic society, didn’t really play a role in this article.

First, the article begins with the claim “A essentially uncontrolled regime in the home-school area” by Bartholet. Yes, the state has laws making education obligatory, “but if you look at the legal regime governing home-schooling, there are very few requirements that parents do anything.” Just about a dozen countries have regulations on the education standard expected by parents, she said. ‘In addition, this means parents who never go to school on their own devices or who don’t read or write by themselves can declare their children as homeschoolers in another couple of states; obviously, they can leave their children at home,’ continues the article, continuing.

Although between 3 and 4 percent of children are at home, according to the study, a large percentage of those children who can only run around the house all day long, play Nintendo Flips and eat Twinkies can never be found. It’s a persistent problem with this article and with Bartholet’s work to back up important points with evidence.

The government will monitor your child; when your child is 4-5, the school will serve as “mandated inspectors” and determine whether you harm or neglect your child. The government will also be allowed and monitor your child.

“The highest percentage of people reporting to Child Protective Service to teachers and other school staff,” said Bartholet. Since countries don’t check home school students for evidence of child violence, a parent may “always say, ‘If they were accused of child abuse, I would pull them out of school and keep them at home.”

Bartholet’s other facts are that teachers dial CPS a lot — this means this child abusers don’t steal their children from high school in order to exploit them at home. Was this vulnerability exploitable by childhood abusers? If, again, statistics are important in this regard. It’s not just a point that you should a priori draw.

Here is the evidence: Tara Westover explains in the autobiography “Informed” how she was part of an Idaho family of survivors excluding their children from school.

“While her childhood years in the company of her father’s scrap industry, where severe injures are commonplace, and harassment of an older child, Westover writes that he has not been properly taught at home. The book is not seen by Bartholet as a different event of a family who has fallen between the cracks. ‘This is what will happen to most of the country in the scheme.’ That is bad, but the proof is common…

We get to the bottom of this entire matter when we find that Bartholet has recently published a report that finds that a vast majority of home-school parents — number as many as 90%— are “guided by traditional Christian values and seek to exclude their children from popular society.” The footnotes indicate that it is actually anything because it leads to a dead page of Pathéo and is used in a fairly balanced project entitled “Leaving Fundamentalism: Freedom from Bigotry,” a Website called White Pride Home School, which was specifically founded in 2005.

Yeah, and stuff like that are like this as well: “Not so much higher are Christian schools than public schools. You also teach perverted sin resistance. They teach race equality and support interracial marriage. A young woman, whom we know, was highly angry, because she evidently well taught her little little daughter, came back with the revelation that the Christian teacher told her that she should offend and God should not let her go to the sky because she didn’t want to play with the black boys on the playground. “Definitely powerful. No proof remains that anyone has ever used the material for its purpose, but the website is present on the pre-HTML5 Network, as too many dead content-free pages.

It is the rigor of education. Bartholet used this to show the white supremacist presence of home education. This is the truth.

It’s the most incendiary point — and to be fair, the rest of the paper is much better if it relies heavily on fully partisan sources which do not even pretend to be fair.

This isn’t the problem, however. The 24-carathon message here is that parents who educate their children in white nationalist ideologies have a small but important leap, and yet the only evidence is an anecdote and two dodgy websites.

That is the one that needs to convince you why your kid will be stopped lawfully. Simply claim.

Oh yeah, the main point: home schooling is anti-democratic.

“[Bartholet] finds the lack of legislation to guarantee the proper schooling of homeschool children in public schools to be a challenge to U.S. democracy. “We have seen the government as having a right, from the beginning of compulsory schooling in this region, to train children to be responsible and successful participants in the wider community,” she says.

“This includes supplying kids with the skills to get work and support them. “But it is also crucial that children grow up exposed to the ideals of cultures, universal principles, civic ideals, ideas about the non-discussion and acceptance of the views of other citizens,” she said, adding that European nations, such as Germany, forbid homeschooling entirely, and nations like France need house visits and regular exams. Bartholet goes for the point.

Now, to be honest, these are pretty good stuff to talk about for your kids. Even instead, if the parents are intolerant enough, the school doesn’t seem to hold the kid forever to know all those wonderful things.

We are also taking on the position of schools by disseminating the State’s official opinion – which might not actually be so great, depending on the type of society we are or end up being. That Bartholet never felt the intrinsic danger is a indication that there is a big breakout.

But then the paper was given in good faith, it’s hard to tell. A fearsome argument that home schooling was in essence a path to white supremacy was utterly deceptive.

Bartholet struggled to assess the number of home students who were under a risky parent or parent’s yokes.

Walz, top lawmakers, reach bipartisan deal to wrap session



Walz, top lawmakers, reach bipartisan deal to wrap session


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Tim Walz and legislative leaders announced Monday that they struck a bipartisan deal on a broad framework for parceling out a massive budget surplus with a week remaining in the session.

The deal would devote $4 billion to tax relief, and another $4 billion to spending on education, public safety and health care. It would also leave $4 billion in the bank to guard against downturns amid the current economic uncertainty.

The plan signed by Walz, Republican Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller and Democratic House Speaker Melissa Hortman includes $1 billion for education, $1 billion for health care and human services, $450 million for public safety and the judiciary, and $1.5 billion in other spending.

It also calls for $1.5 billion for a public works construction package known as a bonding bill that would use $1.4 billion in borrowing and $150 million in cash.

The leaders were expected to provide further details later Monday, but they said the full plan would be finalized in the days to come. The Legislature, which struggled all session to reach bipartisan agreements on how to use the state’s $9.25 billion budget surplus, must adjourn by next Monday.

“With an unprecedented surplus, we have the ability to make significant investments in the things that will improve Minnesotans’ lives, like health care, public safety, and education, while also providing tax cuts and putting money in Minnesotans’ pockets,” Walz said in a joint statement.

Miller indicated that Republicans got at least part of what they had been seeking — permanent tax cuts.

“Getting money back to the people has been a top priority for Republicans this session and I’m very happy we were able to accomplish this with permanent ongoing tax relief for hardworking Minnesotans, families, and seniors,” Miller said in the announcement.

Hortman indicated that Democrats also got some of the new spending they were seeking. She said in the statement that the deal includes “strong investments in families’ economic security, education, health care, and public safety.”

Before Monday, the biggest bipartisan compromise of the session was a deal that rolled back an unemployment insurance tax increases, which was a top GOP priority, and $500 million in bonuses that Democrats sought for 667,000 frontline workers who were at extra risk during the pandemic.

“This is a positive step forward, but there is a lot more work ahead of us in this final week of the legislative session,” Hortman said.

Next Monday’s end of the session will mark the start of campaign season, with both parties heading into a critical midterm election.

Clay Holmes is the Yankees best reliever right now



Clay Holmes is the Yankees best reliever right now

CHICAGO — With a two-run lead to protect heading into the ninth inning on Sunday, Aaron Boone wanted Clay Holmes on the mound. The Yankees’ right-handed reliever has pushed himself into the manager’s circle of trust very quickly. The 29-year-old could very easily be closing games as this season goes on.

“He’s throwing a bowling ball out there,” one American League scout said. “I will admit it, my (scouting report) on him from the Pirates did not see this happening. They’ve eliminated his four-seam fastball and that sinker is just a heavy bowling ball.”

Since being acquired by the Yankees from the Pirates, Holmes has unlocked something that has made him one the most effective relievers the Yankees have these days. By eliminating the four-seam fastball, Holmes can focus on the sinker, slider and occasionally a curveball.

That has given him an outrageous ground ball percentage of 81.8% and a just over 2% fly ball rate.

Holmes has the lowest walk rate (3.1) of his career and the second-highest strikeout rate (26.6) of his career.

This comes on the heels of Aroldis Chapman struggling when the Yankees are already looking to use different relievers in the ninth inning.

On Saturday night, Chapman gave up the walk-off single, after walking a batter, in the Yankees only loss in this four game series. While his velocity is still among the top in baseball, Chapman’s average fastball velocity is down almost two miles per hour.

His command has been an issue the last few years. In 11.1 innings pitched this season, he has already walked nine batters. He’s among the bottom 3% in walks per nine innings in the majors right now. His hard-hit % is the highest since 2015, when Statcast began recording it.

The Yankees sat down with Chapman, 34, this spring and talked to him about being used in different, high-leverage positions. That meant they would need other relievers to step up and close at times.

“(Jonathan Loaisiga) can be in there. We’ve seen (Chad Green) in there,” Boone said. “It kind of depends where we’re at, what team we’re facing, where we are in their order and what they have on the bench. But today if we’re coming back around to the top of their order with those good right-hand hitters, and it was that spot I was gonna go with Clay.”

Right now, he’s their best option.

Loaisiga is pitching to a 5.93 ERA with eight walks and nine earned runs over 13.2 innings pitched. He’s given up three home runs. Green has been better with a 3.38 ERA in 13.1 innings pitched over 12 appearances. He has also struggled a bit with the walks, issuing five.
