Kentucky ‘free range’ family loses custody of 10 kids over apparent ‘unschooling’

entucky “off-grid” family had their 10 children seized this week by authorities, and their supporters say they were targeted “simply because the government disagrees with their lifestyle and their educational choices.”

An anonymous tip sent sheriff’s deputies Wednesday to the 26-acre rural Breckenridge County home of Joe and Nicole Naugler, who document their “back to basics” lifestyle on social media.

They believe the complaint was lodged by an acquaintance who threatened to report the family to Child Protective Services during a Facebook feud with Joe Naugler.

The father was away with eight of the couple’s children when deputies arrived, and Nicole Naugler – who is five months pregnant – tried to drive away with the couple’s two oldest sons, according to a fundraising page set up by the family.

Investigators attempted to question the teens away from their mother, and she was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest when deputies said she interfered.

“I am a free range human, not meant to be caged,” Nicole Naugler said. “But I will stand up for my rights.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would almost be willing to bet that these kids spoke better, were better at critical thinking, and understanding math and science than most of their contemporaries in public school.

Some spelling bees across the country have banned home schooled kids because they do so much better than do their public school educated counterparts.

But when your children can be taken away from you simply because you educate differently, you no longer can be part of a free society or country.
