Judge Stops Homeschooling?
In the conservative blog sphere there is much ado about a divorce case in which the judge ruled that a mother needed to send her home school children to public school. While I support homeschooling, this case really concerns issues of divorce, not homeschooling.
As the mother filed for divorced, should she be permitted to not work and home school the children? And why do we assume that the mother should win custody? Would these conservative sites be OK if the father won custody and stayed home to school the children while the mother worked to pay alimony and child support? I imagine they would be singing a different tune.
