A parent who actually does spend time with their child & HOME-SCHOOLS them, may be FORCED to put them into PUBLIC SCHOOLS for REASONS totally UNRELATED to their kid’s ACADEMIC performance.
The New Hampshire Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case of a 10-year-old home-schooled New Hampshire girl ordered into a government-run school. On Sept. 17, a lower court judge refused to reconsider or stay the order. An Alliance Defense Fund allied attorney represents the mother of the girl.
“Courts can settle disputes, but they cannot legitimately order a child into a government-run school on the basis that her religious views need to be mixed with other views. That’s precisely what the lower court admitted it is doing in this case, and that’s where our concern lies,” said ADF-allied attorney John Anthony Simmons of Hampton .
“The court illegitimately altered a method of education that the court itself stated is working. It admitted the girl is ‘well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising, and intellectually at or superior to grade level,’ but then it ordered her out of the home schooling she loves so that her religious views will be challenged at a government school. That’s where the court went too far,” Simmons explained.
