As international test scores indicate, America's children are the recipients of an increasingly rotten education.

In 1991, our 41st president, George H.W. Bush, signed the World Conference of Education for All treaty. What that particular bit of international do-goodism did was to subject education in the U.S. to monitoring by an international body.

To government, homeschooling resembles a weed that spreads and resists control. To homeschooling parents, it is the flowering of knowledge and values within children who have been abandoned or betrayed by public schools.

A great tension exists between the two perspectives. Homeschooling's continued growth has only heightened it. The federal government has reacted by attempting to increase its control over homeschooling, for example, by pushing for increased regulation of homeschool curricula. But the federal government is hindered by certain factors. For one thing, education is generally the prerogative of individual states. Nevertheless, the federal government can often impose its will by threatening to withhold federal funds from states that do not comply with its measures. But homeschooling parents cannot be threatened by a withdrawal of money they don't receive...

New regulations propose strict guidelines for voluntary labeling of non-GMO productsIn mid-January, the US FDA announced new regulations requiring biotech companies to consult with the FDA at least 120 days before marketing new GM foods.

Previously, such consultations were voluntary. Biotech companies must provide health safety data about the new GM foods to the FDA, and the agency said it would make this information available on the Internet. While biotechnology and food industry representatives praised the new regulations, consumer and environmental groups criticized them, saying they didn't go far enough, particularly in terms of labeling GM foods. The FDA rejected consumer demands for labeling.

In recent years, there has been renewed interest in the proper use and possible abuse of executive orders and other presidential directives.

Many citizens and lawmakers expressed concern over the content and scope of several of President Bill Clinton's executive orders and land proclamations. Congress responded with hearings and the consideration of several bills designed to curb the President's authority to issue such directives. In an exceedingly rare act, the courts reacted by striking down one of President Clinton's executive orders, and litigation to contest the validity of other directives is ongoing. Despite the increased public attention focused on executive orders and similar directives, public understanding regarding the Legal foundation and proper uses of such presidential decrees is limited.

Susette Kelo dreamed of owning a home that looked out over the water.

She purchased and lovingly restored her little pink house where the Thames River meets the Long Island Sound in 1997, and had enjoyed the great view from its windows. The Dery family, up the street from Susette, had lived in Fort Trumbull since 1895; Matt Dery and his family lived next door to his mother and father. Matt's mother was born in her house in 1918 and had never lived anywhere else. The richness and vibrancy of this neighborhood reflected the American ideal of community and the dream of homeownership. Tragically, the City of New London turned that dream into a nightmare.

A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug raid on the wrong house.

Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door. The two officers, 25-year-old Kyle Shedran and 24-year-old Greg Day, were placed on administrative leave with pay. "They need to get rid of those men, boys with toys," said Adams' 70-year-old widow, Loraine.

Is government-run day care the next great weapon in the fight against crime-

Every part of "quality educational child care" is meant to sound nice, harmless, comforting. It is also meant to subtly demonize the critic, drive media coverage, mobilize legions of activists, and create a sense of crisis on Capitol Hill. In the forked tongue of Beltway speak, "quality education child care" means a taxpayer-funded array of government programs, bureaucracies, agencies and panels to fix social problems.

Congress is about to pass legislation that will federalize every local school district and spell the end of local and state control of America's public school classrooms.

Mindful of Ronald Reagan's words, "You can't control the economy without controlling the people," Bill and Hillary Clinton have found the way to control the economy by controlling America's schoolchildren.

Zero tolerance - the idea that one punishment fits all crimes and perpetrators.

The expanding web of zero tolerance policies spreading from schools to the juvenile justice system creates a culture in which children are demonized for being children while increasingly being punished as adults, national children's law experts said Friday.
