Utah Legislator: End Compulsory Education

Diane Ravitch's blog

State Senator Aaron Osmond of Utah has called for an end to compulsory education.

Osmond says that parents are expecting too much of the schools. He believes that education should be a choice, not a mandate.

This is evidence that education “reform” is hurtling backwards in time, taking us to an era when there was no compulsory education, when kids could be kicked out of school for low test scores or bad attitudes, when students were expected to obey and sit in silence.

Yes, we will soon have fully restored 19th century educational methods, all in the guise of “reform.”
