On July 14, Judge Lucinda V. Sadler of the Laconia Family Court in New Hampshire approved and issued an order forcing a 10 year old Christian homeschooled girl into public school because of her “rigidity on matters of faith.” Though the Marital Master Michael Garner said “it is clear that the home schooling...has more than kept up with the academic requirements of the...public school system,” he also said that “[the girl's] vigorous defense of her religious beliefs to [her] counselor suggests strongly that she has not had the opportunity to seriously consider any other point of view.” This sort of government meddling in education is wrong and unprecedented.
What we can do is call the office of the Laconia Family Court and let them know that millions of Americans, Christian or not, agree that it is not the role of any branch or level of government to interfere in personal decisions as this court has. We can also express support for the right to homeschool our children.
