Ohio a parent was charged and convicted.
For sending her two daughters to a better school district all right she falsely used her father's address to get them out of -- school ranked near the bottom of the state.
In New Hampshire a mother's religious beliefs are at the center of a court order.
Forcing her artists -- -- ordered a public school rather than to continue home schooling her.
Is that the parent's right to choose what's best for his or her child isn't it a natural right and -- -- -- the government education monopoly the reason public schools are so bad.
With us now my friend and host of Huckabee.
On the Fox News Channel former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee governor Mike it's a pleasure thank you very much -- -- Ohio case.
That the facts are pretty clear.
A woman claims to be residing at her father's interest because it's better with school district should steal any money shouldn't take anything that -- entitled to or should have been jail.
Because her two kids went to a neighboring school district which prosecuted her if you're the governor of Ohio -- -- once the governor of Arkansas.
Absolutely not in fact the irony here is that if she had been an illegal immigrant.
Then she would have been completely able to send her kids amid -- it did think about this -- -- they say what she broke the law people break the law all the time to better that the life for their kids the whole idea of the rationale behind the DREAM Act was.
To make sure that you don't.
Punish these children.
I think that a parent ought to find the best opportunity for his or her children.
That's what this mother was doing I -- wholeheartedly the answer is school choice the answer is not to have the government -- some mother in jail.
-- as it does -- doesn't tell you -- to buy shoes it doesn't say -- you have to eat restaurant that restaurants in your school district that doesn't say what shops that -- to why can't we treat education.
Like any other commodity on the market and let people purchase -- where they want to rather that where the government tells them so well it works and -- higher education system you think about it and America's higher education system is the envy of the world right unfortunately our K through twelve isn't what's primarily different.
You choose with your feet where you go to college you do not get to vote with your feet as to where your kids a ten K to trouble much you have enough money.
You can afford to put them in a private school while we need that fundamental change governor thought of you and read about this awful New Hampshire Casey state court judge of which is you know I was -- one in New Jersey.
Decided that this woman is true religious.
After the basic principles of christianity to be trusted with teaching her child at home of their for the child must go to a public school how draconian -- that it is very draconian first of all home schooling is a very legitimate option for parents.
And it ought to be protected.
The laws ought to do everything possible to say that the fundamental responsibility of government is to protect the rights of the parent not to infringe upon them.
Mothers and fathers will always raise better kids than governments several well horse and into the idea that that the mother is religiously the first question is.
Define religious by government standards secondly how much religion must I do not read a transcript that this trial but it's inconceivable to me that a court could have compelled her to answer questions about her beliefs.
Conveyor of values to children is the parents in this case it's a one parent family who could do it better than the other I did she wasn't teaching her daughter to you know to bite off the heads of birds are doing something bizarre.
That the basic.
But a fundamental issue ought to be is there any thing endangering the child.
Now if believing in god endangers a child and we've lost the country anyway -- -- that last question we don't have much time left there's this movement afoot.
For the federal government to do something to let -- states go bankrupt.
-- out when the federal government pays your bills -- it comes with strings and the at some point that cash flow stops -- left hold back.
I find that I'm a very lonely person here I think it's a terrible precedent if the states are able to go into bankruptcy what it's really doing it's creating a template that is gonna come back and bite us.
Because it's saying not only can states and now the federal government.
Run up your bills do whatever you want and then let somebody else pay part it is a very.
Bad precedent if I watch you love this weekend as a -- almost every weekend with whom will I see you you're gonna -- -- to having a conversation with a motor city madman Ted Nugent I'll -- sky it's worth.
Watching and that we'll just in the band no we don't let him and let us have Frank Caliendo gonna -- -- Super Bowl fun little -- Josh is our favorite -- statesman after governor Mike Huckabee it's it was a pleasure thanks.
