    What Margaret Thatcher would have tweeted @MHarrisPerry

    Melissa Harris-Perry’s quote will live on in infamy:

    “We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents”

    Doubling down didn’t help.

    We know what Lady Thatcher would have tweeted at Harris-Perry:

    The full quote:

    “They are casting their problems at society. And, you know, there’s no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then, also, to look after our neighbours.” – in an interview in Women’s Own in 1987

    When we yanked the kids out of the public schools to homeschool them, one of many issues was that their teachers indeed were sending home “papers to grade” as well as constant “assignments” required of the parents. We have never regretted the decision.

    Leaning suggests dependence, which implies a temporary or permanent disability.

    This nirvana of shared responsibility between parents, community, and educators already exists. We call such hellholes “inner city public schools”; the products of which are generally deficient in education, job skills, and moral character, despite ludicrous amounts of cash for education.

    I will not cede my responsibilities to those who, when they fail miserably, refuse to take responsibility.
