This stuff happens a lot in various European countries, and is happening more and more often in Canada and the United States. Can someone explain to me why some people think that the government essentially kidnapping kids that are homeschooled is okay? There are other things too, like kids being harassed, attacked, virtually sexually assaulted (read: teen girls in the United States forced to strip naked in front of male police, in their own home, so the CPS official can confirm that there are no bruises). I get that some people don't think homeschooling is a good idea, but I'm at the point where I just don't care. Leave them alone unless actual freaking proof of them committing atrocities can be shown. The only times I've heard of "homeschoolers" doing bad things, is when underperforming or troublesome kids were told, by the public schools, to homeschool, so that the school wouldn't have them on their records (in order to get better reviews and more funding).
