http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=187133 Elena Kagan, whose nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court likely will be before the full U.S. Senate for a vote soon, has suggested state regulations are "little" burden for homeschoolers, according to notes she made on a case while she was clerking for Justice Thurgood Marshall. According to documentation uncovered by the Home School Legal Defense Association, Kagan advised Powell during the 1980s when a court case developed in Ohio in which a Christian family decided to homeschool their child. The parents were convicted of not getting the superintendent's permission, and the case was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, whose justices refused to intervene. As part of that work, Kagan reviewed the arguments for Marshall and suggested an outcome. "[Petitioners] are self-described born-again Christians who adhere to a literal interpretation of the Bible and have little sympathy with the secular world," she wrote.
