Debi and Michel Pearl Still Damaging Schoolhouse Reputation

If you have a spare mo, go tell the editor of homeschool.com why you wouldn't sub to The Old Schoolhouse magazine.

This is what I said:

To the Editor

Since Gina Suarez is a vocal supporter of Michael & Debbie Pearl, who encourage their followers to beat young children with plumbing supplies in order to instil discipline, I support the homeschoolers' boycott of everything associated with TOS and the Pearls.

Yours,

HT: HE & OS

It's the editor of homeschool.com not TOS. Homeschool.com spammed me with an ad for TOS.

Feel free to delete this comment. I just wanted to get the clarifying info to you.

Is this still going on? It really beggars belief!

I agree with you Dottyspots. Quite extraordinary. I gather the issue is still current in the US...it makes me almost grateful that we have the law limiting unreasonable chastisement, though I personally think it quite ridiculous that touching an adult without their consent can constitute assault, whereas hitting a child as long as you don't leave a mark doesn't!

Still can't get my head round it!!
