Wake judge orders home schoolers into public classrooms
Raleigh, N.C. ‚ÄĒ A judge in Wake County said three Raleigh children need to switch from home school to public school. Judge Ned Mangum is presiding over divorce proceeding of the children's parents, Thomas and Venessa Mills.
Venessa Mills was in the fourth year of home schooling her children who are 10, 11 and 12 years old. They have tested two years above their grade levels, she said.
"We have math, reading; we have grammar, science, music,‚ÄĚ Venessa Mills said.
Her lessons also have a religious slant, which the judge said was the root of the problem.
1. Parents are primarily responsible for their children's education.
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. (Deu 6:6-9)
2. This lady has the constitutional right to do what she's doing.
"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."
That judge is totally and without a doubt insane and psychotic for prohibiting the free exercise of religion which is a direct violation of the First Amendment. The kids old man is also insane and psychotic for wanting the kids to be taught the fairy tale of the Theory Of Evolution. If the kids are doing better in home school then their public school counterparts then ergo that should be the only thing that matters. It is totally superfluous if the kids are being taught religion.
