Please pass this to strengthen Parental Rights - Roaming flash mobs are .....

Our public schools are really government schools and the government was never intended to be the parent of our children.

Roaming flash mobs of young children are a symptom of government having too much control of our children's lives and their education.  If the government gives you free food, shelter and clothing and then pays your parents not to work then it must be really difficult to respect the value of an education or the property rights of others.

We must teach these children very basic economics, government and American history at the earliest age so they can realize the value of an education before they get it instead of after they have dropped out of school.

Please pass this to strengthen Parental Rights
