Should homeschoolers get a tax break?

Should homeschooling families get a federal tax break? The Congress has failed to pass such a measure, and only three states currently allow some tax benefit for home schooling — Illinois, Louisiana, and Minnesota.

The New York Times posed the question to a panel of experts, and the responses are here. Some think homeschoolers should get a federal tax break, others think it should only come with mandatory testing and greater oversight. The combox is full of people who believe that if you’re going to give a benefit to homeschooling families, childless people and retirees should get breaks, too, since they don’t have children in public school. 

I’m guessing a few people here at IC might have an opinion.
