So, what am I all hot and bothered about? Some political figure in Ohio, you can Google her name if you want, tried to get a bill passed that would say that anyone who wanted to homeschool their child, in Ohio, had to have Social Services OK it first. Are you kidding me? As if that was not bad enough, then I made the mistake of reading comments made by ignorant people who have no knowledge of anything apparently, on how this should be because all those wacky homeschoolers just abuse their kids, thump their Bibles, and teach that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. And those are just the ones I took the time to bother and read. There were more.
I know, I know homeschoolers pull their kids out of public school so we can hide them in a closet, make them work hard labor in the fields, abuse them with hot irons, starvation and refusal of medical care. Really, why would we not have to be investigated just because we want to educate our children in the way we see fit? Come on, educate yourself, before you get on your high horse of stupidity. It is a beautiful horse and you ride it so well.
Child abuse is an all encompassing epidemic. It effects all races, religions, and even educated well off people abuse their children. Homeschooling is a RIGHT. You, nor the Government has the RIGHT to try and take that away from anyone. Once you start to trounce the rights of one group of people, be very careful for your precious rights may get trounced on too.
If someone is suspected of child abuse, fine take the proper steps to eradicate it, but keep your hands off homeschool rights. You might find we don't like having our rights trounced on.
