CBS: Homeschooling Equal to Child Abuse?

This just in from a KIC Contact:

The "homeschooling special" advertised at the CBS link below is "planned to air on Monday and Tuesday, October 13-14. There needs to be a response. How many of the kids involved in school shootings are homeschoolers? How many of today's prisoners are homeschoolers? How many of today's welfare recipients were homeschooled? How many of those accused of being homeschoolers and committing crimes are actually parents of preschoolers? But how many of today's winners of geography and spelling bees, etc are homeschoolers?"

"Following discussions that Hal Young, the president of NCHE (North Carolinians for Home Education) had on Friday with the CBS Evening News producer, it is anticipated that CBS will be running a 2 part series on Monday & Tuesday evening on homeschooling (The report is already complete, but be mindful that other news may possibly preempt it)."

"This report is expected to focus on the handful of child abuse cases over the past 5 to 10 years involving 'presumed homeschoolers' including the murder/suicide of 'non-homeschooled homeschoolers' in Johnston County, NC two years ago. The CBS reporters will be highlighting various murders, suicides, etc. involving 'homeschoolers' nationwide and will attempt to argue that 'Homeschooling is out of control.' The woman producer stated directly to Hal that he 'would not be pleased with the report,' and that the intent of the report is to encourage further state and federal government regulation of homeschooling."

Check CBS News and email them for further information regarding this planned television broadcast. Better yet, if you have a television, privately tape the CBS broadcast so you can review it as needed - or in the event you feel a need to respond to CBS. - MCB
