Harvard recently put out a few articles about "The Risks of Homeschooling" and it is trying to put out a "presumptive ban" on homeschooling.

The freedom of the American people to rightfully engage in home education is the epitome of the U.S. Constitutional right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. The government's role is to protect the people from the destruction of this unalienable right and Harvard is the entity that the government need protect us from in this situation. Whether you believe that homeschooling should be banned, is the same as believing that a parent does not have the right to raise their own children and that government need intervene authoritatively against "authoritative" parents. Please realize that while you may choose to enroll your child into public schools, Harvard does not have a choice over whether other parents may or may not homeschool their children, you as a parent do specifically for your own child. To take away the right of the parent to protect their child, is to take away the right of the child. 

Harvard's main concern over homeschooling children is that supposedly their beliefs do not conform with modern society. An American's First Amendment right is the right to believe whatever they deem true, and for government to support a belief system only taught in public schools, universities and colleges would be unconstitutional, illegal, and furthermore a violation of human rights. Please make this petition go viral so the 3.4% of homeschoolers in America, and future homeschoolers have a right to learn what they consider necessary and have the right to educate themselves. This includes children with disabilities whom need special care at home, children suffering from autism spectrum disorder, extremely bright and capable children who need not a one size fits all educational curriculum, talented musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, and many other types of children who the public school system does not advance with respect to the child's talents or limitations. 

I used to be a homeschooled child from 8th grade until I went to college at 16. While college has taught me lots of useful material and gave me credentials, I never felt like I learned as deeply as I did when I was homeschooled. I read 75-100 books a year counting college textbooks, learned as much as I could hands-on of farming, math, and physics. From textbooks I learned biology, chemistry, neuroscience, literature, history, beyond even what the regular public school curriculum taught students at my age. In college, I learned to memorize and repeat what they told me.  I researched at the U.S. Naval Academy at the age of 17 about GPS modules, electric propulsion, and published a research paper about amateur satellites in relation to jet streams and I am now a business owner at the age of 19. I could not have done these things without the opportunity of being homeschooled. Homeschooling is an opportunity for different types of children to grow, be different, and get one on one attention with education when they need it. We need to treat these children as human, and humans have rights.

Keep Harvard out of the government, protect our children's rights and sign the petition!
