Homeschoolers have been asking if Obama and McCain support homeschooling. I had tried to find the answer for Obama and could not find it. The closest I got to McCain's stance is that he supports parental choice in education including wanting to start a voucher system so parents can have more choices and financial assistance if they choose options other than their own area's public schools.
Spunky has been trying to get a clear answer from Obama's campaign about whether he supports homeschooling or not. Go here to read what Spunky was told about Obama's view on homeschooling.
My reaction to that statement is: respecting parent's decision is not the same as supporting it.
However as I've told some homeschoolers, the President's take on homeschooling is largely irrelevant since education is a state issue and laws for homeschooling are handled by each state's government.
HEY--this is the first time I've mentioned the upcoming election! I was trying to not blog anything about it...
