    It is incidences like these that make me ever proud to be the mother of a homeschooled child who is not under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and their ridiculous propaganda. My children can be exposed to many sides of an issue without being afraid of another point of view. They realize that hearing another point of view does not delegitimize their own. We immigrated years ago in order to add our voice to the cacophony of religious voices in the land of Israel, not to stomp out the voices of others with differing opinions. Mazel tov to those kids for standing up for their right to be educated. These kids ARE going to be responsible for the future of Medinat Yisrael. They need to be educated in order to guide us wisely in the path of Hashem to work for the betterment of Israel's citizens and in order to truly be a light unto the nations. Let them LEARN!
