Oh, yeah. I read that a few days ago. It is ridiculous. But I wouldn't expect anything less from the NEA. We're attacking their livelihood after all. We are a real threat to them. They have a really long version of their opinions (on much, much more than just homeschooling!) and it is some of the most idiotic word vomit I've read.

I teach in public school and my husband (gasp) homeschools! My poor students get very little instruction because they are always being tested. We take tests for a month in the Fall, Winter, Spring. In the Spring we also have another test added. It's crazy. I want to teach and I want my own kids to be taught, not constantly tested.
