RSR is wondering how fundamentalist opposition to welfare squares with the growing practice of "unschooling" their children. In other words, they don't send them to school and they don't teach them at home either.

... unschoolers bristle the most at the thought of standardized testing.

Ms. Tucker has allowed her son Will, 13, to be tested, but she refuses to look at the scores.“

They’re meaningless to him and me,” Ms. Tucker said. “If you attach a number to your child, your opinion of the child changes, good or bad.”

Surely, those kids will be qualified for just two things when they grow up unschooled. Welfare or an internship at the Discovery Institute. Surely they can't have that many jobs in Discovery's secret research labs.
