(mods--please feel free to move this if I have it in the wrong place)

I saw this and think it's horrible! So basically if you home-school or your kid does cyber school, CYS will be showing up at your house. Angry

MEMORANDUM
Posted: February 25, 2013 02:37 PM
From: Senator Andrew Dinniman
To: All Senate members
Subject: Child Protection Task Force County Notification
I plan to introduce a bill to address the recommendations made by the Task Force on Child Protection established by Senate Resolution 250.

While most students are seen by a teacher during the school days many non-traditional or home-schooled children are not. Requiring school districts to report which children are enrolled in a home-school or cyber-school will go a long way to protect children who may be in an abusive situation at home.

This legislation would require a school district to notify the county Children and Youth Agency when a child is enrolled in a home-schooled or cyber-school program. The County Agency would then be required to do a risk assessment to determine whether or not a risk of child abuse exists.

Please join me in sponsoring this worthy legislation. If you have any questions, please contact Martin Indars at mindars@pasenate.com.


(Introduced as SB32)

I saw that today. I don't homeschool, but I don't think homeschooling warrants a nosy government home check.

Kids can easily be abused whether or not they are homeschooled.

Ever read "A Child Called It"? He wasn't homeschooled.

While there is some merit to the purpose, it is also blatant government intrusion that will expand into overreach very fast.

Are there lesson plans, syllabuses and other materials available for individuals who want to home school but are not qualified?

This made me LOL.


The legislation is bunk. The government has no business, and if someone showed up to my door demanding an inspection, well, going and fucking themselves would be the least of their worries.

Homeschoolers are already required to be tested once or twice per year by a licensed educator to make sure they are on par with other kids their age.

There are also online schools available for kids to be schooled from home without their parents actually teaching them. They can be live streamed or on dvd's, several to choose from, both state and nationally.

As a matter of fact, two national religious schools that I know of have very strong dvd or live stream curriculum where you can even send the work in and have the schools grade it, and you are actually recorded as their student and you can even go down and participate in their graduation as well.
