Scary Quote!

" Parents give up their rights when they drop the children off at public school. "-- Melinda Harmon, Federal Judge, 1996

I could'nt tell you in what context this Judge made this statement, but isn't it enough to scare you a little?

You might be an MK if your parents will let you travel to another continent unacompanied, but is scared to death to let you go to school.

I've also heard too that marriage is also the State's right too when you fill out the marriage license and send them back the certificate after the wedding.

I've also heard a democratic judge in Wisconsin tell parents that their children belong to the state as well when they filled out their birth certificates and applied for social security numbers. Isn't that appalling? This was in regards to a testing of all students in school and their parents were very upset by this test.

Yes, it is a scary quote. I'm so glad I have chosen to NOT go that route. Our children are to precious.
