HSLDA has announced on Facebook today that an article by Mike Farris addressing abuse and neglect in homeschool families will be published in the next issue of the Court Report.
'Farris says, “What has changed our minds [about not addressing dangerous teaching sooner] are the stories we are now hearing of families, children, women, and even fathers who have been harmed by these philosophies. While these stories represent a small minority of homeschoolers, we can see a discernible pattern of harm, and it must be addressed.”
'The article is entitled “A line in the sand,” to be released on August 27, 2014.'
We are looking forward to the publication of this article. Hopefully it will be an accurate first step for HSLDA in addressing this problem.
