DALLAS, Texas — Increasingly, homeschoolers have come under attack by Big Education. Most recently, in Connecticut. Governor Dannel Malloy created an advisory commission that preliminarily sought to mandate involuntary mental health screenings for homeschoolers, citing the tragic 2012 Newtown shooter Adam Lanza as a reason for tighter control.
However, Breitbart News called this a “knee-jerk reaction,” pointing out that there was no evidence to support any connection between home education and public school violence. Lanza, who was responsible for the senseless slaughter of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, had spent some time homeschooled, although the majority of his education was in public school Breitbart News reported
While national advocacy organization Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) intended to “vigorously oppose,” the news of such an egregious government overstep in Connecticut did not sit well in Texas.
