one reason why liberals may homeschool


". . .The history, social studies and government textbooks were submitted for approval this summer, and academics and activists on the right and left criticized many of them.

Others said they overstated the importance of Moses to America’s founding fathers or trumpeted the free-market system too much. . . ."

"An Oklahoma school district has shelved a Bible curriculum that Hobby Lobby President Steve Green had hoped would be used by students in January. (NOTE good news i was shelved - Bad news?) . . . was approved in April by the school board. . . "
