Ann Coulter has a new book out, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism." Here's what she said about homeschooling in an exclusive interview with Human Events Online,

In Godless, you mention that a far greater number of children are sexually abused each year by educators than by priests. You also write about the sex-education programs in public schools. What suggestions do you have for parents on dealing with these issues?

As an emergency measure: home school. As a long term solution: encourage your home-schooled children to become public school teachers and destroy the temple of liberalism.

In general, I've enjoyed Ann Coulter's writing. But she definitely lost me on that point. Homeschooling isn't an emergency measure, it's a long term solution. And suggesting our children become teachers to destroy the "temple of liberalism", is like telling someone get a job in Health and Human Services to destroy welfare. It doesn't make any sense to me at all. Maybe this was just Ann being her usual slightly sarcastic self and I missed the humor. Was this supposed to be funny?
