Re: “Fewer Executions in U.S., 17 Remain on Idaho's Death Row

Enfoce the death penalty. I hate wasting my tax paying dollars keeping people alive for murdering someone. Get rid of them and save money. They decided that someone or someones should not live so why should we? We shouldn't. Death penalty fits the crime and saves tax payers money.

Re: “Keep 'Em Home

I thought this was a good article. I was surprised that Boise Weekly would post such a positive article on homeschooling. The IEA is very liberal in their beliefs. The IEA wants to have control over every child in the state of Idaho as the NEA wants total control over your child and the children in the United States. This is just a synopsis of what to expect out of the public school system. There are many good ps teachers. PS system does produce many intelligent kids. What is most important to the ps system? Money. If a child is taken out of the ps system they lose federal and state dollars. This is thousands of dollars. If a parent doesn't put their child in the ps system the system loses money. The ps system does not want to hold kids back, even if they deserve it, because they 1) look bad and 2) they lose federal and state dollars. Ms. Woods has no idea about socialization that is beneficial for kids. The system she is in has taught her that the way she is to believe is the only way. She is dead wrong in what she said in the article and what she believes. I would challenge her beliefs against any homeschool child. You will find that homeschool children, generally, can relate to all ages, including adults, not just to their own age. The behavior issues that are tolerated by superiors and taught to other kids are nothing to be proud of. I believe Ms. Woods needs to broaden her understanding of homeschooling before she acts as if she knows all about it.
