Homeschooling and the Art of Language – How the Effects of Homeschooling Are Frequently Overlooked

pardon letter

The journalist and the homeschooler

Some years ago, while searching news sites on the internet for appropriate current material to share with my group of homeschoolers, I discovered an article in a Pakistani newspaper by the renowned journalist, Robert Fisk, and was both stunned and elated to find myself reading material of a literary quality that merited one or more rereadings and prompted me to make a note of his name and subsequently to follow his reports whenever I could find them. I was later to discover that Dr. Fisk is in fact the recipient of more British and international journalism awards than any other foreign correspondent.He gave a lecture at the University of California, Berkeley on September 25, 2008, which was presented in its entirety online, and I eagerly shared excerpts of this with my homeschooling students, for I have frequently found that children tend to be much more easily inspired by the spoken than the written word.

Delightful throughout, Dr. Fisk’s address presents some well-conceived insights into the state of modern journalism, and attributes falling circulation to the absence of literary value and style in the writing of many American journalists.Significantly for my homeschooling purposes, the grammar, choice of words, use of metaphor, the language devices he employs in this unscripted speech, serve as a perfect example of spoken formal English – that which is tested for in college entrance exams and demanded of college students – here presented in an accessible, conversational and improvisatory setting.

The renowned journalist fails to take homeschooling into account

Fisk presents and illustrates beautifully his point that American journalism is so often lacking in literary value by contrasting newspaper fare with a remarkable example of personal correspondence, a letter from an American serviceman stationed in Iraq, but does in the process commit one grave journalistic error.This is a common error though, and all too frequently made by those unfamiliar with, or dismissive of the profound role that homeschooling can play in one’s education.In quoting a superbly worded letter from an unnamed officer in Iraq to his father at home — which then elicited a well-deserved ovation from the audience — and focusing on the fact that his prose was on a level not to be found in the LA Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, nor The Orange County Register, Fisk does fail to provide his awestruck listeners with the most crucial piece of the puzzle.

Fisk quotes from this remarkable letter as its author explains the problems encountered trying to encourage self-governance in Ramadi, Iraq:

…The instinct to impose order and command the requisite discipline in the Iraqi leadership must be quelled in order to allow sovereign stewardship to develop at its native pace and in a native form. I fight myself to remain insignificant in the process. I haven’t the nature for passive observation. I share the American fascination with action and it has consistently betrayed us in our foreign policy. Our continued involvement will continue the state of dependency and our eventual departure will leave nothing but cosmetic structure here. Iraq will return to what it is. Our common sense is not common to this people and that understanding must be given proper respect. I do my best but I twitch with an urge for the folly of intrusion.

The mystery revealed

And who would not applaud! The writer of this poignant passage does wield his words with a proficiency and grace which Fisk likens to that of Joseph Conrad and in which any true fan of English writing would exult.

A little Internet research revealed this eloquent unnamed Marine to be one Major Benjamin Busch, and, whereas Fisk is certainly accurate in reporting that Major Busch is not schooled in journalism and is most certainly correct in his assertion that Busch writes far better than do most journalists, this search revealed that he had omitted one highly relevant and significant fact.The seemingly anomalous literary mastery demonstrated by Busch becomes far less baffling when one learns that he is indeed a college graduate, but that is purely incidental. More significantly, his father, Frederick Busch, the one to whom the letter was written, was a prolific author, the recipient of a raft of literary awards, and professor emeritus of literature at Colgate University.

Fisk may be pardoned, as unschooling flies under the radar

This uncharacteristic omission by Fisk is really perhaps quite excusable in that the homeschooling factor is not included in, nor regarded as a legitimate entry on one’s resume, particularly if it is informal and merely supplementary to one’s official schooling. He may not have thought to research Busch’s parentage and background, and may have felt that there was no reason to assume it to be relevant. It is not really Fisk’s reporting that is at fault as much as the egregious and erroneous but widely propagated assumption that skills, particularly language skills, can only be acquired in a formal educational environment.

The extent to which Major Busch was influenced by his father is quite evident, not just in his writing, but more clearly and inescapably in the presence of a parental relationship that would occasion the writing of such a considered and well-crafted letter. Indeed, this is not a father to whom a son would send the colloquial, malformed, disconnected ramblings so characteristic of informal American conversational language usage. These words, penned so elegantly for the elder Busch, reflect a standard of verbal communication common to father and son, a beauty of expression which is perhaps far better assimilated through the nurture of unschooling than through any number of formal lecture classes and seminars.Major Busch’s sentences were finely and intricately sculpted for a reader whom he knew to be worthy and appreciative of them.

In the absence of a parent of Professor Busch’s exalted literary stature or one possessing Dr. Fisk’s brilliant narrative and oratory style, where can the homeschool family go to study and acquire more sophisticated language skills? This is a question we strive to address our homeschooling classes and books.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Expungement of Criminal Records

Prior to law school, I had never heard of the term “expungement.” Maybe I was naive, or just uneducated in criminal law and criminal procedure. But it never occurred to me that (a) there is a process by which people can have criminal records expunged; and (b) there are people out there that need to utilize such a process.

Before I get too far in this article, however, I want to let you know that I am a Maryland criminal attorney, a Virginia criminal attorney, and a DC criminal attorney, so anything discussed here is from the standpoint of expungements in those jurisdictions. Additionally, DC statutes provide for expungement only in very limited circumstances, while Virginia and Maryland have somewhat broader statutes. All three are different and, therefore, the information you obtain in this article is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. Finally, if you need to have criminal records expunged in any other jurisdiction, you should consult an attorney who is licensed in that state to give you advice and information.

1. What is expungement?

Expungement is the process by which certain criminal records can be destroyed, usually after a certain period of time or a result in court – for example, after an acquittal, nolle prosequi, probation before judgment, or other dismissal of the charge.

While this article is about expungement, I want to point out an important difference between expunging records and sealing records. Expungement means that the records are completely destroyed. It is as though the crime never happened, or at least the record of the crime doesn’t exist. Sealing means that the records are still there, but a court order forbids them from being seen by most people.

2. What criminal records can be expunged?

It is important to note that not all criminal records, charges, results, convictions, etc. can be expunged. However, when it is determined that records are able to be expunged, generally all records within any court, correctional facility, detention center, law enforcement agency, or criminal justice information registry regarding that person’s criminal charge will be expunged. This usually includes information pertaining to apprehension, arrest, detention, trial, or disposition for that particular crime.

3. Are criminal records automatically expunged?

Except in limited circumstances, criminal records are not automatically expunged. Usually, the person requesting the expungement, or their criminal attorney, needs to file a motion or petition in the court and then follow various procedures to have the record expunged. Often times, records cannot be expunged until a certain time period elapses. In some instances, such as in some juvenile cases, records may be automatically sealed or expunged once the juvenile defendant reaches a certain age.

4. Can an expungement request be denied?

Absolutely expungement requests can be rejected. First, and foremost, expungement is not an absolute right. Criminal records can only be expunged in limited circumstances and only if the applicant follows the procedures correctly. Expungements are often denied because time periods aren’t met, the petition is insufficient, the records aren’t those that can be expunged, and for many other reasons.

As a general rule, criminal records are public information. That is to say anyone can go to the Maryland, Virginia, or DC courthouse and find out if you have been arrested or convicted of a crime. Expungement is a method by which someone can limit or eliminate the accessibility of these records entirely. In the end, though, it is very important to note that expungement laws and procedure vary immensely from state to state, even between Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

If you need to have criminal records expunged in Maryland, Virginia, or DC, you should consult a good criminal attorney because expungement laws are very technical. Call a good Maryland criminal attorney or Virginia criminal attorney today. At Marquardt Law Firm, we understand the expungement procedures in Maryland, Virginia, and DC. Don’t wait, we can help you.

Questions surround feds’ raid of Stockton home STOCKTON, CA – A federal education official Wednesday morning offered little information as to why federal agents raided a Stockton man’s home Tuesday morning. The resident, Kenneth Wright, does not have a criminal record and he had no reason to believe why what he thought was a SWAT team would be breaking down his door at 6 in the morning. “I look out of my window and I see 15 police officers,” Wright said. As Wright came downstairs in his boxer shorts, he said the officers barged through his front door. Wright said an officer grabbed him by the neck and led him outside on his front lawn. “He had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there,” Wright said. According to Wright, officers also woke his three young children, ages 3, 7, and 11, and put them in a Stockton police patrol car with him. Officers then searched his house. “They put me in handcuffs in that hot patrol car for six hours, traumatizing my kids,” Wright said. As it turned out, the person law enforcement was looking for – Wright’s estranged wife – was not there. Wright said he later went to Stockton Mayor Ann Johnston and Stockton Police Department, but learned the city of Stockton had nothing to do with the search warrant. US Department of Education spokesman Justin Hamilton confirmed for News10 Wednesday morning federal agents with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), not local SWAT, served the search warrant. Hamilton would not say
