    scary isn’t it…

    AL is a huge homeschooling state with clear cut laws, while I feel confident in our legal standing to homeschool, it is clear that our rights as parents can easily be torn down by a single person who believes they are the authority.

    How’s that for a run on sentence?

    Get well quickly ((hugs)))

  2. I don’t believe this will have any power, Kim. It was probably instigated by the teachers’ union who are threatened by parents taking their kids out of the public schools. I paid a small fortune to get my teaching license. I’m still paying it off, so I can understand their concerns. BUT I really doubt that parents will be sanctioned for taking their childrens’ best interests into their own hands. No way.
