CALIFORNIA OVERREACTS AND PRESUMES EVERY HOMESCHOOLING PARENT IS A CHILD ABUSER

California is seeking to treat homeschool families as presumptive child abusers. Lawmakers in that state have indicated plans to categorically require homeschool parents to prove — through home visits, interviews, and other government oversight — that indeed the parent is not abusive if they choose to exercise a legally protected and valid option for school choice. This measure would shift the burden to the parent to prove to the government’s satisfaction his or her parental fitness.

This is absurdly unconstitutional.

But in light of the remarkably horrifying case of Riverside County couple David and Louise Turpin, whose 13 children were reportedly chained, malnourished, and clearly abused, the media and lawmakers have chosen to focus on one coincidental detail — the Turpins were also registered as homeschoolers.

Using the Turpins’ case as one extreme example to bolster their platform, legislators are now looking to increase government regulations of homeschooling in California, which may lay the groundwork for increased regulation nationwide. Already, state legislators have suggested they will introduce legislation to cure the supposed “problem” of laxity in private school choice options, which includes homeschooling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent, and caring home-school providers are under threat everywhere in this country, and that ... is a damned shame.

Most home-schooled kids wind up far smarter, and far ahead, intellectually, of their public-schooled contemporaries; and that is JUST what states, and the Federal Government, loathe; a kid with the capacity for the kind of critical thinking which can see through government propaganda, and understnd the nature of its agenda, in a hearbeat.

Not a syllable that this is a Jewish totalitarian power grab to control White Gentiles. It's money junkies and Hilary's statist bureaucrats in Washington. Yeah, that's the ticket: It's those statist bureaucrats in Washington.
