If You Don't Like It--Lump It

That title can apply to both of these following situations:

Public schools acting "in loco parentis". You don't want your kid searched or interviewed by police without you? Too bad. You don't like how they're being taught about academic subjects? Too bad. You don't like the school's policy on sex education, zero tolerance, touching? Too bad. Homeschooling and private school are the answers for us.

Public school schedules do not suit your religion? Too bad. Consider the options the rest of the world has to live with, like private school and homeschool. There is no reason for public schools to cater to any minority of students.

Ration Jenn also dives into the Supreme Court ruling in the "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" case. From the case:

In Morse v. Frederick, however, Justice Clarence Thomas said, "If parents do not like the rules imposed by those schools, they can seek redress in school boards or legislatures; they can send their children to private schools or home school them; or they can simply move."
