They will not be happy until parents are signing their kids up for government education programs at the hospital after the baby is born.
Well, at least one presidential candidate is on the plan:
Barack Obama's Plan
Early Childhood Education
Zero to Five Plan: Obama's comprehensive "Zero to Five" plan will provide critical support to young children and their parents. Unlike other early childhood education plans, Obama's plan places key emphasis at early care and education for infants, which is essential for children to be ready to enter kindergarten. Obama will create Early Learning Challenge Grants to promote state "zero to five" efforts and help states move toward voluntary, universal pre-school. (emphasis mine)
Hmm. Combine a program like this with the attitude that "real" education can only be provided by a credentialed (expert) teacher, and pretty soon the government won't permit us parents to ensure that our kids learn to walk and talk!
Oh, and add in the notion that homeschooling parents--and nearly ALL parents of infants would be considered homeschoolers in this context--should be reporting our children's academic progress to someone in the government (I mean, it's so obvious, isn't it?), so that we can be "overseen" by those omniscient experts. . . . Well, the logical progression is that there will one day come a time when we'll need to send in weekly or monthly progress reports to our local government experts, detailing the progress of little Janie's pincer grasp or babbling skills.
