    I'm so glad that things turned out alright for this family. They were in the news a while back because the government threatened imprisonment. Glad I live in America!

    Back in the 70's, people weren't allowed to homeschool their children in this country either. I'm so glad it's changed.

    There is a movement in this country to make it illegal again.

    I'd rather do it illegally then send my kids to the b&m schools. I shudder at the thought!

    LOL!

    I've got to spread the word amongst my undocumented worker friends. This should work like a charm. Thanks for the idea.

    OMG! That is completely insane, but not unexpected. I sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Education years ago asking them about Homeschooling. They said it was not recommended and that I should send my kids to Public Schools. Let's hope the United States never turns into a Socialist prison.

    The ignorance in E. Tenn is in the public school system.

    Yeah? And how do you know that? Do you live in East Tennessee? Any part of Tennessee? Know any homeschoolers, Tennessee or otherwise? Even driven THROUGH Tennessee?

    Seems to me that anyone who doesn't understand the simple concept of punctuation should shut the hell up regarding "ignorance", but perhaps that's just me.
