A Parade poll, teacher cruelty and more…
Parade Magazine that is inserted into papers all over the country, has a poll in this weeks issue that asks, Should Home-Schooling Be Illegal? It is in response to the California Appellate Court decision, ” In re Rachel L” that had been issued on February 28, 2008 and the upcoming rehearing concerning the case there.
Susan at Corn and Oil and Dana at Principled Discovery have some excellent posts up about Educational Anarchy. I think we have been anarchists for years, but it will be interesting to watch how the California case proceeds this week.
Valerie Bonham Moon at HEM News and Commentary has information on the situation last week where a school teacher asked her young students to tell a young classmate what they disliked about him??? The teacher then had the children vote whether or not they wanted the young boy to stay and they voted him out of the class. Valerie has links to an interview with the Mom and other resources on the attack that this teacher initiated. I find the whole situation unbelievable.
Toni over at Musings in NC has been sharing her thoughts on the Lynn Paddock trial. She is wisely and kindly not sharing the testimony of the children, but I know that as important updates occur, you can check her blog for her local insight.
Finally this week, the courts in Texas ruled that the FLDS children were wrongfully removed from their homes and they will be returned to their families.
