I'm trying not to be an alarmist here, considering the source is biased (aren't they all), but I'm certainly going to be keeping my eyes and ears open. Here's the short story: A mom in Moberly, Missouri was reported by the school district for neglect because she pulled her children out of an abusive situation at public school in order to HS. The report was filed only 3 days after they stopped attending (and yes, she informed them right away). So this wasn't a case of her just not teaching or anything. HSLDA came to her aid, thank God. The state dropped their case against her, but there were some disturbing issues raised that HSLDA is going to have to take on as a result. Basically, according to World Net Daily, the juvenile officer made it clear that they will be randomly and frequently checking up on HSing families from now on. Problem is, that goes against state HS law.... until they change it. Simply homeschooling your child (in Missouri, anyhow) is not constitutional grounds for investigation. But according to the officers, they're going to do it anyhow. Like I said, I'm not going to be an alarmist here. It's very possible that HSLDA will take care of this with no problems. Or that the officers will try to strong arm the wrong person and the unconstitutionality of their actions will be confirmed. Missouri is a very pro-HSing state, so I'm figuring on it staying that way. If you're interested, here are the two articles about the situation. One is about the initial accusations of neglect. And the other is about the dropping of the charges and subsequent concerns.
