In several places here on COM I have seen mothers who talk about how they homeschool their children. This is fine and dandy, but in several of these posts, it is apparent that the mother has severe issues with spelling and grammar.
If a parent wishes to homeschool, should they be required by law to take an IQ test, a certification test to make sure that they at least have 10th grade reading and writing skills or some other form of testing? Or is it a violation of their privacy by the state to insist upon this testing?
Should the child have the legal right to be taught by someone who knows the difference between "there", "their" and "they're"? Or should the parents have the legal right to teach their kids without government interference? And because this post is critical of others' spelling and grammar, with how many typos and grammatical errors has fate punished me?
