Homeschool Freedom No Longer a Given-Switzerland Cracks DownDec 9th, 2008 | By Jessica Parnell | Category: General Homeschool Posts
Homeschoolers in Switzerland are now facing the same battle that our friends in California just fought. As of next summer, only those with teaching certificates will be permitted to homeschool. Learn more about their struggle here.
The time is now to make our voices heard on the issue of homeschooling and the issue of parental rights. We are responsible for our children-we are responsible to feed them, to teach them to walk, talk, live right, love, to be responsible, to work hard . . . why is it that we can be trusted to do all of that, but not to provide academic training? Seems to me we are already taking care of the more difficult training.
And why is it that when all of the statistics state that schools are failing and homeschoolers are succeeding, we are still faced with this battle?
If you have ideas or input on how we can work together to ensure that our rights to homeschool remain in tact, please post them here. We need to lay the foundation now—let’s not wait for the next crisis.
