A Democratic state senator in Ohio has proposed a law that would require every homeschooling parent to be investigated and approved by social services agencies before they would be allowed to teach their own children.
The Home School Legal Defense Association calls the bill sponsored by Sen. Capri Cafaro the â€śworst-ever homeschool law proposed.â€ť
â€śSB 248 is breathtakingly onerous in its scope,â€ť says a report by Michael Donnelly, an attorney with the worldâ€™s premiere homeschool advocacy organization. â€śIt requires all parents who homeschool to undergo a social services investigation, which would ultimately determine if homeschooling would be permitted.â€ť
Under the proposed law, social workers would interview parents and children separately, conduct background checks and determine whether or not homeschooling is recommended....

That's okay Fred, besides, flak jackets make a great school uniform, all the kids will want one.

I believe this is one of the front lines that christians must engage in. Just think for a second, why are the devil's in the world system so concerned with children? Because if they win them then they raise more godless babies until, in their minds, they erase any notion of the Lord.

Just follow the money Gojo, that is why the schools all have a nazi like attendance policy. They just want you to think it's because of the welfare of the child. The higher the attendance the more money rolling in, that is what it boils down to. If they can get all the homeschoolers in the classroom it's more money.
