Should a Homeschooler Be Head of the Texas Board of Education?

Gov. Greg Abbott has stirred up controversy in Texas after appointing a homeschooling mom as chair of the State Board of Education. 

Donna Bahorich, who will succeed outgoing chair Barbara Cargill, is a Republican from Houston who homeschooled her three sons before sending them to religious private schools. 

Her appointment by Abbott last week has drawn criticism from all ends of the political spectrum, including from her own conservative colleagues.
