This Is What Josh Byrnes Thinks of Homeschoolers

From Caffeinated Thoughts:

State Representative Josh Byrnes (R-Osage) sent the following email to an Ankeny parent who emailed him regarding the anti-bullying bill.  Apparently in his twisted way of thinking there is nothing worse than a homeschool parent expressing an opinion about public education legislation.

    I would tell Mr. Byrnes … as far as I know, homeschooling families pay taxes for public schools and the legislators are elected by all voters whether they homeschool or not. I guess his philosophy would be grandparents and people who don’t have children aren’t allowed to express their opinions to our legislature about school issues. No taxation without representation … our country was founded on that!
