MANDATORY EDUCATION A THING OF THE PAST?
Donnie and Marie Osmond's nephew: "A Republican state senator in Utah is calling for the end of mandatory education in the state. State Sen. Aaron Osmond (R-South Jordan) wrote on the state Senate blog Friday that mandatory education in the state has forced teachers and schools to take on parenting responsibilities. Prior to the mandate taking effect in 1890, he wrote, education was "an opportunity" and parents were more engaged. He also wrote that teachers were more respected. The Deseret News first reported Osmond's blog post on Tuesday." MORE: HUFFPO
