Candidate: Ind - Kirsten Richardson STATE SENATOR, District 8
1. Do you support or oppose requiring families who home educate to register their children with either the state or their local public school district?
2. Do you support or oppose requiring all children taught at home to take standardized achievement tests each year?
3. What other requirements, if any, would you favor as a condition of a parent's right to teach his or her children at home?
4. Other comments that you wish to make on the subject of home education:
Education is the natural (God-given) responsibility of parents. Education is not a property role of government. Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto (1848) "Free education for all children in public schools." Public education never fosters faith in God. Public education is always financed by taxing the wealthy to school the needy. This should be called collective theft.
