According to the HSLDA's Home School Court Report,the government in Sweden has mandated that all schools, public and private, must use the government approved curriculum, with the education ministress stating that it meets the needs of all children, no matter what the religion, ethicity, and so on. (report is available to members of the HSLDA....join today!)
Beyond the reality that the new laws effectively ban homeschooling there, I'd like the gentle reader to consider the reality that the government schools in Sweden are "educating" the children more or less by telling them that there are no competing theories.
I'm not quite sure what is more reprehensible in this; that the kids are being trained to believe anything the government tells them (training for totalitarianism, really), or that they're being trained to believe something that any thinking person knows is patently false. Or, perhaps, both of my objections are really the same thing, aren't they?
If you love your kids, train them to question and test the assumptions of the ruling class.
