    and she always gets a flu shot and they are encouraged to do so. She says she does worry about those kids who are homeschooled but yet are permitted to participate in public school sports program ( a good example of this is Tim Tebo who was homeschooled but played high school football for a public school ).  She says she worries some of these kids are not being vaccinated and could spread diseases to the kids, coaches,staff of the public school.

      who can't get shots and need the protection of herd immunity.  She (and you) are right.

      If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.
