jaw-dropping ideology

there have been more than a few fukd up decisions by republican-appointed judges of late, but this might top them all:  "U.S. District Judge Stephen Murphy III ruled last week that children have no fundamental right to learn to read and write in the United States."

That guy is nutz and totally wrong. M

Massachusetts School Law of 1642:
Forasmuch as the good education of children is of singular behoof and benefit to any Common-wealth; and whereas many parents & masters are too indulgent and negligent of their duty in that kind. It is therfore ordered that the Select men of every town, in the severall precincts and quarters where they dwell, shall have a vigilant eye over their brethren & neighbours, to see, first that none of them shall suffer so much barbarism in any of their families as not to indeavour to teach by themselves or others, their children & apprentices so much learning as may enable them perfectly to read the English tongue, & knowledge of the Capital Lawes: upon penaltie of twentie shillings for each neglect therin.
