The Honorable Governor Scott Walker

Dear Governor Walker,

I was at the Christian Home Educators Association (CHEA) annual conference at the Olympia Resort & Conference Center in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin on Saturday, May 25, 2013.  I was told that you made an appearance on Thursday, May 23rd and you were well received.  CHEA is a valuable resource for Christians who have chosen to educate their children using the homeschooling option, rather than the secular indoctrination they receive at public schools.

There are tremendous burdens, financial and otherwise, that are placed on Christian homeschoolers, as well as Christian schools in general.  The biggest being the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI), as well as the US Department of Education (DOE).  The DPI and DOE are overtly secular and most decidedly anti-Christian.  Although you personally spoke in favor of homeschooling, I am not aware of anything in the Republican platform advocating for the dismantling of DPI or DOE.  I am also not aware of your personal opinions regarding dismantling the same.

In contrast, the platform of the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) clearly states their position towards state-sponsored education:

Education should be free from any State Government subsidy and government interference. The State Government has no legitimate role in either subsidizing or regulating education. To that end, the CPoW supports amending the Wisconsin Constitution to remove the State of Wisconsin from any role in education.

We support an orderly transition to free market education including Home Education and Private Schools (for profit and non-profit) and encourage benevolence to provide effective education for those in need.

It is clear that the removal of the state-sponsored monopoly on education would greatly benefit the Christian community and ultimately remove the punitive financial burden currently shouldered by all the taxpayers in the State of Wisconsin.

As to not jump to any conclusions nor make any incorrect assumptions, I will ask you these questions directly and allow you to respond in kind.

  1. Does the Republican Party of Wisconsin advocate dismantling the DPI and/or any other state agency in the role of education?
  2. Does the Republican National Committee advocate dismantling the DOE?
  3. Do you personally support the dismantling of the DPI and DOE?

Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.  I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Jerry Broitzman, CPoW Public Relations Chairman
