    It's nice to see that you know how to make an unfounded overgeneralization. Do you have any evidence of your assertion?

If there was evidence that the child's education was being negatively effected by the home-schooling provided, then I'm not so certain I agree with this decision...just based on religious bias. I agree that each parent should have equal say in the matter, but the welfare of the child should come first. Changing one's educational situation can be detrimental to that child, emotionally.
    "The course load, except for the Bible study, is similar to what public students get and the mother's home schooling has "more than kept up with the academic requirements of the [local] school system," the judge's statement said."

    From the story, the judge has said that her education has kept up with that of the school.

    The judge decided this on, "The child would "be best served by exposure to different points of view at a time in her life when she must begin to critically evaluate multiple systems of belief and behavior," it added."

    That is totally subjective.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    As a proud indulger in such vice, I can't help but wonder why I hated school, then.

    Cap, I have a kid in public school. Now I know that public schools vary considerably, but in my personal experience it's like I said: he may not be exactly right, but he isn't far wrong. Half the kids my son goes to school with seem to be vying for the yearbook title "Most Likely To Die In Prison".

    And guess what, Harry. As much as I am an anti-advocate for home-schooling, in this particular situation, I agree with you completely. The child should remain in the home-schooling environment that she has been in. There is no reason to change it, other than bias...and some of it seems religious in nature. The court seems to be considering making things fair for the parents over the best situation for the child. I disagree with that course of action.

    And I'd share my 20+ years of experience with situations like this, but I'd prefer the same.
