I’m way behind and am taking a quick look at what’s happening with legislative micromanagers in Springfield. This bill caught my eye: 

PARENTS ACCOUNTABILITY COMMITTEE

Creates the Parents and Community Accountability Study Committee to examine issues related to racial and socioeconomic disparities affecting the pro-social development of children and youth, to identify ways to engage more parents in being accountable for the actions of their children, and to identify ways to engage more communities in being accountable for investing in pro-social development of children and families.

What does "pro-social development" mean anyway?  I can say that I find it highly ironic that this creepy committee is proposed by IL legislators regarding parents "being accountable for the actions of their children".  Where is the accountability to the Constitution?  It’s sponsored by Representatives  Constance A. Howard and Esther Golar.

I started something that I thought was just going to be links about the California homeschool situation, but what was I thinking?  I can’t just do links.  I like to ramble.
