Alberta Education Minister David Eggen says he wants to study homeschooled kids, telling the Lethbridge Herald that research needs to be done to determine how well these kids do at the postsecondary level.
Translation? He’s looking for a reason to curb homeschool funding and rein in families that homeschool. Clearly he wants to discourage it as an education choice. We know from Bill 10 that the NDP aren’t fans of parental choice in education.
Based on their history, we can expect a fake survey and a fake fact finding panel to examine homeschooling, much like the activist stacked Oilsands Advisory Group and the fake Climate Leadership survey where the outcome is predetermined with the “research” tailored to the desired result.
Watch as I save Minister Eggen some time and provide him with the facts on outcomes for homeschooled children.
This is what happens when we leave the social engineering behind and focus on actual education in math, biology and literacy. Kids do better and are better prepared.
If government has its heart set on studying them, they should study ways to implement homeschoolers’ best practices into conventional schools because whatever they’re doing, it’s working.
