Why do you think the father is a "right-winger"?
Also I would argue that the father is giving them an education. Perhaps not one you agree with, but certainly an educated person such as yourself can see there are more there is more than one way to skin a cat.
Would you say a person graduating from high school, or this guys children are better prepared to get through life?
Better at filing their taxes? Filling out the required governmental forms to form a business?
It could be argued, taking it to the extreme, he is raising a good little soldier for the government centric world "left-wingers" dream of.

I didn't. But it's the rightwingers on this thread who are applauding taking his kids out of education. Many morons buy into the education = liberal brainwashing theory spouted by right wing media mouthpieces.
Just because more educated people are usually more liberal doesn't mean education tricks them into becoming something they are not. In reality, more education gives you a fuller understanding of reality, which generally leads to more liberal viewpoints.
How is training someone to file their taxes better for then than teaching them the scientific method?
Teaching someone a widespread knowledge of many fields opens their minds up to reality and possibility. Teaching them menial tasks like paperwork or trades simply creates the worker bees you describe.
