“In the nearly hour-long home visit, the assistant director told Hope that the trip that her family took to observe the solar eclipse wouldn’t be counted as school time. The school official also belittled her ability to educate her children, stating that even as a professional educator he wasn’t qualified to teach his own children at home,” the report said.
This ‘school official’ is human excrement. I AM qualified to teach anyone anything I know. This includes home schooling my kids, or any kids, through high school. I am a high school graduate. If you aren’t qualified to teach what you know, then your high school diploma is worthless and you should sue your school district.

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people.
The eclipse is racist!
