Home-schooling Parents vs. Disabled Americans?

Thu, December 6, 2012

Politics, Republicans

Attention homeschooling parents! Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum says a U.N. treaty designed to protect the disabled will allow foreign countries to come into your homes and make you stop teaching your kids!

When I first heard the sweater-vest wearing former presidential hopeful denouncing the proposed U.N. Convention on the Rights of People With Disabilities — the global version of the Americans with Disabilities Act — on the grounds that somehow it would prevent parents from making their own decisions for their children, I knew there was a hidden agenda.

What’s really going on with the conservative right, people with disabilities and their decisions to home-school? That’s what I’m dissecting for you over at my column, The Spin Cycle. Could it be that Santorum has kicked off his 2016 presidential bid?
