Families to be investigated by the government before 'allowed' to homeschool their children
by PF Louis
(NaturalNews) On December 3, 2013, Ohio state senator Capri Cafaro (D) introduced a bill that would require Ohio parents to be investigated by social services before being allowed to homeschool their children. It was called "Teddy's Law" to honor a 14-year-old boy who was abused and beaten to death at home.
The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) approached the matter with weapons drawn. They pointed out that the child's abuse had nothing to do with homeschooling. The facts were that social services and law enforcement did not act on reports from school officials and neighbors, not until it was too late and Teddy was dead. 
Teddy's death had nothing to do with homeschooling. It had everything to do with a deranged mother protecting her psychotic boyfriend from being arrested by pulling Teddy out of school to allegedly "homeschool" him after realizing that officials were very suspicious of her boyfriend's child abuse. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, and the mother was sentenced 15 years for negligence.
The system failure was within the very agency to which her bill is assigning authority for screening parents who want to homeschool their children.
According to statistics from the Children's Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, up to 80 percent of reported child abuse is unsubstantiated. In most states, parents with wrongly accused child abuse reports have their names removed from legal records. But not in Ohio.
So an Ohio parent on record for a child abuse report, even if not guilty, would be blocked from homeschooling. That was a major issue. Of course, the statistics from Children's Bureau may be skewed as well. How many "innocents" were actually guilty? But even if only half of the reports were erroneous, that leaves a lot of innocent parents blocked from homeschooling.
Not to worry - the bill has just been withdrawnUnder heavy fire from homeschool advocates and the HSLDA, senator Capri Cafaro responded by withdrawing her bill, claiming that she had never intended to incite a heated debate on homeschooling rights but only propose an effort to protect children from abusive parents. This was reported on December 23, 2013. 
But all that sort of bureaucracy is already in place. It simply needs to be used more effectively to protect children instead of impeding rights of medical treatment choices and worse. Ironically and sadly, many local social service agencies, such as Child Protective Services (CPS) and adoption agencies, have been complicit in harming children.
Those activities include enforcing toxic medicines on children and not allowing alternative medical choices, not following up on actual child abuse cases and occasionally being complicit with kidnapping and child trafficking for pedophilia prostitution.
All three of these sick activities have been reported but not publicized mainstream when it should have been. If you don't believe it, do your own research on the internet.
David Icke's website has reported this type of activity in the UK, and in the USA a suppressed report detailing abduction and child trafficking that went from Boy's Town to the White House was exposed in attorney John DeCamp's book, The Franklin Cover-up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska.
Despite this Ohio victory, the matrix of public education with its political allies is forever fomenting resistance to homeschooling.
John Taylor Gatto, who was awarded Teacher of the Year before retiring and writing several books condemning the pubic education system, makes it clear that, for the immediate future, homeschooling is the only viable education system that can prevent the dumbing down of children and wide-spread matrix conformity.
