You may not know much about home-education. You may be leery of it from lack of exposure to families who responsibly educate their children at home. You may be concerned over the loss of Christian witness by a mass exodus of believers from public schools. No matter what your view, this story (link below) should send chills down your spine. A North Carolina judge has ordered that the children of a home-educating family be enrolled in public school in the next school year. It is not a matter of the children being neglected or receiving poor education at home- they are testing two grade levels above their current grade. One of the central reasons the judge has overruled the parents' rights and authority is because he believes the children can get better social skills in a public school. This is a myth of course, but that's not even the main point. The main point is that the state is now assuming control in the home. This is a dangerous trend my friends. It is an attack on the American family.
