Is it any wonder? The Federal government holds the states hostage by withholding funds if they don't comply with their wishes, though education is the province of each state.

It's unfortunate that most Catholic diocesan education departments are joining the bandwagon, but they're merely sycophants. There seems little choice but to homeschool today.
