I should add -

This topic is interesting because it is at the intersection of a number of threads that are normally looked at within separate silos. This intersection is of 1.) Extremism, 2.) Public Health (anti-vax), 3.) Education (limited over-sight with home schooling), and 4.) Fiscal prudence (or lack there of).

I get that there is a political bent to some of this, but it doesn't lessen the importance of these matters. These issues are systemic and are hidden under layers. Sometimes their defense is labeled supporting diversity of education (which is ironic, because it supports extremist forms to fester and indoctrinate the next generation). The impact on health is massive, because if 90% of kids were in public schools, the vaccination gaps would be minuscule.
