If you are a fellow homeschooling family, I urge you to keep your eye on this situation. I am not a Illinois or Idaho resident, but laws like this one being proposed are a threat to all of us. I completely understand the heart behind this is safety of the children, and I wholeheartedly support efforts to keep children safe, however treating parents as criminals with no reason behind it completely goes against the grain of freedom that our great country stands for. How can the government be allowed to require welfare checks from social services 4 times a year for families that have never been inquired upon as being neglectful or abusive? An even bigger question is how can we protect children who are being abused under the false flag of homeschooling while also protecting the freedom of legitimate homeschooling families? Please let me know your thoughts below.
