- Linda Dobson in The Homeschooling Book of Answers (Prima Publishing, 2002):
"Once upon a time, the most frequently asked question about homeschooling was, ‘Is that legal?’ I always thought it a strange one. If I say I’m taking responsibility for my own children’s need for food, no one questions if that’s legal. If I say I’m taking responsibility for my children’s need to be healthy, again, no questions asked. In fact, I could be hauled off to jail if I didn’t take care of those responsibilities. Since taking responsibility for my children’s need for education isn’t very different from taking care of their need for food and health, I find this turn-around interesting. When it comes to ‘which books they read’ instead of ‘which vegetables they eat for dinner,’ all of a sudden it’s a legal issue. Please allow this book to help you ponder the significance of this."
