"The premise upon which mass compulsion schooling is based is dead wrong. It tries to shoehorn every style, culture, and personality into one ugly boot that fits nobody." - John Taylor Gatto

Youth rights group opposes restricting drinking

A national youth rights group is opposing a Wisconsin proposal that would stop children from drinking in bars.

Current law allows for children of any age to drink in a Wisconsin bar if they are with their parents, the adult gives consent and the bartender is willing to serve them. A bill in the Legislature would prevent anyone under age 18 from drinking in a bar.

National Youth Rights Association director Alex Koroknay-Palicz says the law should remain the same. He says whether children drink in bars is a family matter.

He says the law allows minors to drink in a supervised manner that is safer than if they try to do it without their parents finding out.

The bill has broad support including the state Medical Association and the Tavern League.
