I am an advocate of homeschooling, private schooling and Montesorri-type education. If you are a homeschooler, you are certainly familiar with the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. The provide legal assistance and represention fo those who get in trouble from government agencies or who need assistance or advice. If you are new to the homeschooling you will certainly want to check this out at http://www.hslda.org/
I have followed Edwatch for many years at http://www.edwatch.org for some of the best commentary and information on the state of federal education (FedEd). Not many have seen their info, but you would be surprised at their Board of Directors, See
Since this is a passion of mine, be looking forward to our section on Home v FedEd.
You probably know this, but US education has been controlled by UNESCO for decades. This is the United Nations.
