What is Barack Obama's position on homeschooling?
He doesn't mention anything about schooling.
In his book, The Audacity of Hope on page 344, Obama writes:
"none of these policies need discourage families from deciding to
keep a parent at home…For some families, that may mean doing
without certain material comforts. For others it may mean home
schooling….Whatever the case may be, such decisions should be
honored." On his website he also says this, "Prepare Teachers:
Obama and Biden will require all schools of education to be
accredited. Obama and Biden will also create a voluntary national
performance assessment so we can be sure that every new educator is
trained and ready to walk into the classroom and start teaching
effectively." He also supports the UN Convention on the Rights of
the Child, the UN tribunal authorized to interpret and enforce the
Children's Convention, sets forth an exhaustive index of children's
rights, many at odds with the rights of parents. It has held, for
instance, that Britain violated children's rights in Wales by
allowing parents to withdraw their children from public school
programs without first considering the children's wishes. In other
words, the United Nations has determined that the government will
decide what is best for our children.
