More on this later. Just once again, this kind of stuff does nothing but diss the homeschooling community so as to avoid pointing to the REAL problem: the failure of anything government to deal with problems in society. If putting more children in public institutions called schools could help… then 97% of the school going population would be peachy keen.

  1. The article said that, before the children were removed from school, complaints had been lodged with Children’s Protective Services. If being in an institutional school is what is necessary to root out child abuse by parents, why weren’t these children protected from their abusers before they left the public schools? Or what stopped CPS from continuing to monitor the families even after they left the public schools? It seems to me that the folks at CPS are pointing at “lax” homeschooling laws in an attempt to prevent people from noticing that they didn’t use the existing laws and procedures to save these kids. And the author of the article was more than willing to help in the game of misdirection by tossing in some sensationalistic verbiage about murderers homeschooling their children, etc.

    1. I think we are going to see more and more of this kind of “reporting” in the future. See my post: RCS Should Define Abuse and their editorial that started it all here.

      It’s only a matter of time before this kind of journalistic misdirection migrates from the fairly ignored dead tree presses to the visual media. They are going to start seeking out these Ex-schoolers (I should do a post on Ex-schoolers soon) and getting them on tape, saying stupid stuff. Do we need to be proactive? I say yes.
