Bill Requires Parents to have Mental Evaluation before Homeschooling own Children
Our government officials are completely out of control, and America needs to wake up before it’s too late. Little by little every freedom we have, our God-given rights, are being stripped by a bureaucratic system of tyrants who think they have the power to tell us what we can and can’t do.
We are becoming a nation of serfs.
In the latest example of government abuse, and the governments disdain for traditional values, the State of Ohio has proposed a bill (SB 248) that will make parents who wish to homeschool their children pass a government investigation. Senator Capri Cafaro (D-Ohio) has drafted legislation that will make parents undergo an investigation by social services, who will then decide whether the parents will be permitted to homeschool their own children.
As part of the government investigation, they will conduct background checks, interview parents, and then separately interview the children without the parents being allowed in the room.
Ohio State officials say the law is needed after a child, who was being homeschooled, was killed by his mother’s boyfriend. What they fail to mention, is the abuse started and was reported while the child still attended public school. State officials never lifted a finger to help the child, but are now using his abuse to justify persecuting all Homeschooling parents.
SB 248 turns the government into a nanny state that will now replace parents with government social workers. If this bill is allowed to pass, expect similar legislation to follow throughout the country. It’s not a secret that the federal government, who has unconstitutionally hijacked the public school system through its common core curriculum, has been looking to take down homeschooling for quite some time.
As part of the federal government’s takeover of the public school system, through the common core curriculum, massive government databases have been setup to track children from the time they enter the school system, all the way into the workplace. Through the governments P20 database tracking system, homeschooled children will also be tracked without their parents’ permission.
Welcome to the new America!
UPDATE: After public outrage, the bills author has asked for it to be temporarily withdrawn. Since the State Senate is on recess until 2014, the bill still remains live until the Senate reconvenes. Senator Capri Cafaro is rewriting the bill that she says will create a more “comprehensive approach to address the current challenges in the state’s social service and criminal justice system.”
