As reported by WND, Dictionary.com, the popular destination for writers seeking definitions and synonyms, contains some scathing commentary on homeschooling.
“If you want to keep your kids from reality and turn them into mindless automaton copies of yourself,” the site declares, “homeschool them.”
The pointed statement is just one of three potentially offensive sentences that could be found on the site as late as Tuesday morning as examples for how to use “homeschool” in a sentence.
“If you wish to teach your children such nonsense,” another of the sentences declares, “then homeschool where lame propaganda can remain unchallenged.”
“If she can’t find anyone willing to validate her helicopter parenting,” lists a third, “she’ll homeschool.”
Mark de la Viña, a representative for Dictionary.com, has since told WND the sentences have been removed and users who clear their computer’s cache and cookies should see the issue resolved.
