It is not even determining how you can educate them, but if you are even permitted to educate them. Public education is a service provided by the government, not a requirement.

dontbeafool, Let's look at this a different way. You have a child who is not involved in any activities, and comes straight home after school. In order for your child to be in the same house as you, under your authority, the government must run a background check on you and make sure your home is safe. Kids spend time in their own homes with their families every day, no matter where they go to school. Why should only home-schooled kids be afforded these greater safeguards?

Perhaps she should have all parents screened by children's services. Teddy was in the public school system and the abuse was reported. It wasn't until after the abuse was reported by teachers that the children were removed from school. This is just blatant discrimination against home-schoolers.
