Black parents getting arrested for homechooling in NY

For the second time in a week, I came across a story of a single black mother being arrested for homeschooling. Both had withdrawn children according to the laws of the state, both have been harassed and arrested and children put in foster care because the school alerted social services and told them things like:

They moved too many times
Too many absences (they were withdrawn)
Speaking out against schools

All that time I thought the HSLDA was full of crap (I still think that) with all of their "they will come and get your kids" stuff in order to get our money and then use it to fund Republicans.... will they now support these black homeschoolers who are getting targeted as more and more black people begin to homeschool, or do they want to keep homeschooling pure and keep black families out?

There's another one in lower NY but It is not in the news, I found out about it through her Facebook Live.

Here's another story that I know less about:

Kris Kardashian Jenner against homeschooling?

Not that it matters to any homeschoolers I know, but I am sitting in a hotel room flipping channels and came across the Kardashian's show.

The two younger girls are apparently doing some modeling and such and said they were behind in school. They asked their mom ( again) if thy could be homeschooled and she forbade it and said that she wanted them to have the typical highschool experience.

But here's the deal. Typical high school students aren't also models. If they are going to be models and travel as much as they do then they need to be homeschooled. If school is going to come first and they can't be homeschooled then they shod quit modeling or at least save it for summer vacations. Period.

I think Kris is being ridiculous.....errrr. I take that back.

Edit... Update... Spoke too soon. They hired a homeschool teacher service. Should have known if they brought it up they would resolve it one way or another.

If you don't homeschool your kids, you don't love them

I came across a Huffington Post blog where the writer/parent listed the reasons she would never homeschool her children.

I found it mildly disturbing that each and every one of her reasons started with I.  I-I-I-I-I.  I need time away from them.  I am afraid of math.  I don't like refereeing my kids when they fight. I like dropping them off at school.  But here's the deal.  It's how she feels.  It is her truth. She is being honest.  I sense an inability to see things from her kids side, but considering her reasons for not homeschooling, her kids
