Normally, I'd place this in the Homeschool section; but I wanted to ensure that lots of people who don't normally visit that section see it. This is a horrible proposal. It's extremely sad that the child died; but homeschooling wasn't a cause, and all other homeschoolers are now suspects. Let's make sure we understand the facts: Multiple interventions; calls to social services and police; teachers initiated complaints to the county; and we think that requiring people to get approval to homeschool is somehow going to solve this problem? Make sure you understand the logic, people: The government authorities knew the children were being abused, and were in danger of death; but they did nothing. Make sure you understand the logic, people: This same government that did nothing to prevent the death of this child after multiple notifications, now thinks that by keeping the child in the system that did nothing for him, he might still be alive. I agree; it's possible that he might still be alive, and still being abused. I can't wrap my head around it. Maybe y'all can explain it to me in another way that somehow makes sense.
