Update 1: This article - from the Tulsa World about a multi-million dollar program which provides "free" college tuition to "needy" students - contained the comments of a quadruple S:*
"Sen. Johnnie Crutchfield, D-Ardmore, questions how home-schoolers could fulfill one of the key requirements for the program, that they do not commit criminal or delinquent acts.
'OHLAP is a wonderful program, probably one of the best things we've ever done in the Legislature," he said. 'But there's no way to know the disciplinary conduct of a child who is being home-schooled.'
The senator said whether a student can get along in school is an indicator of what kind of citizen that student will be."
Oy vey! Spoken like a true fogey. Maybe I should mail Johnnie C. a scuffed copy of the 'Revolution.
*Sooner State Socialist Senator
