Members of Congress privately are infuriated and worried over a California appeals court ruling that essentially banned homeschooling in the state, where at least 166,000 students are being educated that way, according to a homeschooling expert who has met with them.
"There's a lot of concern and outrage from members of Congress," Michael Farris, the chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, told WND today, shortly after he met with several members on this issue.
It doesn't matter what the regime says because the right to provide a Christian education as opposed to an antichristian one comes from God alone. There's no need to argue with the regime, just simply declare the truth. They can make non-antichrist schooling "illegal," but it will never be unlawful. See the links for more foundational info.
The founders of the US and its constitution intended to rule with law as an exception, rather than to control daily behavior, as you prefer. Your option to dissent will be removed when your preferred form of government becomes reality.

And I don't understand why Farris thinks an amendment will do any good when the existing Constitution has been repeatedly flouted by all branches of gov't. Lawlessness is the problem, not missing laws.
Homeschooling and private schooling can be difficult to distinguish.
Many homeschoolers are involved in cooperative teaching arrangements, paid academies, academic camps, seminars, geography bees, spelling bees, speech, debate, academic clubs and competitions. Many classes are taken through private teachers who deliver education face-to-face and through DVD, satellite, and online web sites where audio, video, and IM may be employed. Significant costs are often incurred by homeschooling families as by private school families in seeking the best for their children. Much learning also comes through internships and community service.
Public schools often allow the teaching of Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and any religious / values system except a religion of repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:21).
The Bible makes education of the children to be the responsibility of the father in the covenanted marriage. The Bible affirms both homeschool families (Deut 6:1-9; Psalm 78:1-2; more) and private school families (Galatians 4:2).
May Almighty God's Kingdom come and His Will be done and may freedom and liberty flourish for all types of homeschool families and private school families in the USA and every nation on earth.
