There is a Bill in the Ohio Senate that opens homeschoolers(including those using web-based schools) up to interviews, home visits, monitering, and more by JFS.
Any family who has had alleggations of abuse (doesn't matter if the allegations weren't substantiated.) will not be allowed to Homeschool. This will make it possible for those who do not agree with our choices to have power against us.
I will be posting a statement from senator Capri Cafaro on our withdrawing senate bill 248. I am sorry everything has become this way. We will continue our fight against child abuse. At this time Teddy's Law is done responding to questions and comments. And anyone who supports Teddy's Law I would urge the same.
I would like to apologize to Teddy for all of this. Our vision was to protect children from abuse and carry on his memory. This was about him and was never intended to be political.
If the CPS agency would have done their job in the first place and rescued that boy, this wouldn't be an issue. leave it to the gov't, state or otherwise, to use anything as an opportunity to limit freedoms.
This is bad news all the way around. The father has a website about it, but I don't understand why he wasn't involved more before Teddy's death.
Anyhow, thanks - I'm going to write to Cafaro via this website, as well as my local representative and U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown. I just need to look through that bill again, and the Constitution, for some good wording.
