Surprise investigations aimed at homeschoolers

In what critics are seeing as an ultimate power grab, state officials in Connecticut are pushing forward a bill to require state investigations of children like never before ‚Äď calling for a ‚Äúconfidential behavioral health assessment‚ÄĚ of every public school student in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12, and every homeschool student at ages 12, 14 and 17.

The proposed Bill 374 is being described as the ultimate home invasion.

‚ÄúIt‚Äôs outrageous that state officials could come into private homes and potentially remove children if they are assessed as a threat as a result of the investigation,‚ÄĚ Home School Legal Defense Association Senior Counsel Dee Black told WND in an interview. ...

Do you know what your neighbors are doing right now? They might be molesting their children! You'd better get off the computer and swear out a warrant before it's too late! Better yet, forget the fourth amendment. That's a relic of the revolutionary period with no application today. Just turn them in.

Protecting children from abuse has nothing to do with regulating home schooling. Don't conflate them. You desire to control other people. I think we should leave people alone unless we have credible evidence that they are actually hurting someone. The disagreement on this issue and the gun issue are just symptoms of that.

Actually, the Mecca of Mormonism is Utah, and I've lived there, too. More importantly, what difference does it make?

Oh, look, another denier of what happens around them. Considering,Kyle, you live in a state where the nutty Fundamentalist Mormons are prevalent, q.v., A Look at Fundamentalist Mormonism.

It's not what I want has nothing to do with it, personally I have no desire for any greater state oversight, I also don't know what laws Conn., has on the books to handle wacko cults, they may be more than enough. States have said they have a right to protect children, ever since they used laws that protect animals to protect children from abuse during the 19th century.

Oh look, Jim wants government to control the internal affairs of other people.

I'm shocked.

Mike, I don't see that any of your disagreements disproved any of arguments, you just can't sweep them under the rug. European countries are having difficulty with their Muhammadan populations, where to guarantee acculturation of this unruly and probably untrainable population these countries are pushing state schools. Christians who want to home school can't. So, no, you can't tut-tut it away.

I see the dizzy dames are putting this idea forward proposed bill 374, it does look nutty to me. What laws are on the Conn. books that cover the same topics? So, what has been the sane responses to this bill rather than the hysterical ones that I see all over the Internet? What is the secular news media saying about it?

At least some comments on it says Conn. won't fund it, and the bill is to sloppily written to pass as is anyway.

It's something Conn. homeschoolers can keep an eye on. This bill as far it goes also pertains to public school children as well.

But, as I pointed out before Mike of N.Y., the State considers it has at least an ancillary role to play in the welfare of children. I bet your fan of the doomsday "Preppers" on the National Geographic Channel.

4)Atheists usually do an excellent job of home schooling the college graduate ones -- turning out more little atheists, who are apparently law abiding.

5)_Molestation at home is more successfully covered up than that in schools, stands to reason.

1)Irrelevant to the issue of homeschoooling investigation. Besides you already claimed it was a gun problem.

2)In your independent thinking, is there a polygamist connection to "Surprise investigations aimed at homeschoolers"?

3)Let's not homeschool, cause some Muslims might. Typical liberal overkill.

4)Let's only allow athiests to home school. The kid can become an athiest at home as well as in public school.

5)If there's molestation at home, the publicly edu'd kid is still not safe at home. Maybe SWAT is needed.

Next?

Ah, wasn't the shooter at the Newton school, being "home schooled?" Mainly because he wasn't functioning in social setting? I think the A Look at Fundamentalist Mormonism especially for those arrested in Texas, would show, they were completely incompetent to home school their children. Thankfully, Republican Congresses outlawed polygamy in the 19th Century, allowing for the leadership to be thrown in jail.

Home schooling Muslims? well considering,

Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote:
Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
I would almost have know doubt that there are homeschooling Muhammadans, are teaching their kids the "ideals," of Muhammad at this very moment.

Molestation at home is more successfully covered up than that in schools, stands to reason.

With a number ready to act like the Posse Comitatus (organization), rather than Christians, one might wonder if this state legislature isn't on the right track?
But let's say, for the sake of argument all the WASP kids, and all the Black Baptist kids being home schooled don't need a lot of supervision, what about atheist, Mormon
child molesters, etc., that home schooling the children under their control to keep them manipulated?
Nebraska has a good relationship with its home schooling families, mainly I would suppose the great majority that home school in this state are Christian, don't come out meeting people with an assault weapon, and our good neighbors. But, back East, I would be a little nervous some of the people who home school, as I would be about some of those in out West for that matter.
I've heard of several cases of child molestation by teachers, not so much by home schooling Moms. And I'm sure you have evidence athiests and Mormons can't teach their kids at home. Keep trying, though. If you sling enough pasture patties, one might strike an actual target.

You are right. Every move and every decision increasingly must be "approved" by out of control governmental authority.

Maybe it is time to do a "behavioral health assessment" on the tyrants who love to sit in public office and force us to do their every whim. Then again, in many cases they exempt themselves from the very laws they pass on us.

Fast and furious ring a bell? They run guns into Mexico but it is "legal"

How about Feinstein's gun ban bill for us... but all the guns and security for them?

Ammo restrictions for us but DHS buys millions of rounds...for what?

Military personnel are being asked if they will fire on the American people...

Wake up America.

You're right Christopher. We the people is long gone and we've allowed it. I've said before, the government us blatantly and flippantly taking away our rights to be free. They want to know where you are , where you're going, what you're doing, what your spending money on, what you have, what you believe, what you're teaching your children, slaying your free speech, freedom of religion, and so fourth. It goes on and on. You can't say this or that because its offensive, blah blah blah. It's like, no it is enslavement. Like that Orwell movie 1984. People laugh , but if it isn't true then I don't know what. We have allowed ourselves to be enslaved to a anti Christ government. Who's watching what they do ? If you speak out and stand up for your freedom they will shut you down by any means nessecary. I love my country, but I fear this government

Boy, has government changed. The theme is no longer "We the people...", its "We the government..."
Government has become so big, out of control, arrogant, liberal, and gestapo like that the good ole' days of the past are becoming fuzzy memories.
Our government no longer works for us and they snicker at that old, antiquated idea. Now, the government, in its arrogance and quest for ultimate power, is trying to take ownership of the nations children claiming that they know what's best and the natural parents are becoming mere legal guardians who can be relieved of their duties at any time.
