If they are such in public schools they will be broken, and there are man many examples of liberal professors marking down students who do not conform.

Mine have not been. They are there for that reason. While they are still with me, I help them prepare for the real world.

Taking kids out of school to avoid points of view you disagree with is a bad idea; it's not good to teach kids to live only in a little bubble world of people who think only like them. Liberals and conservatives should learn to meet and discuss disagreements like grownups. However, the biggest reason i've seen people start to homeschool is just bad behavior of kids in schools -- foul language, bullying, and just plain meanness. We've dealt with some of that and so far have been able to solve the problem; but i know more and more parents who are just saying "the heck with this."
