What if "the law" says they are supposed to be in school? I thought "the law" was supreme? Doesn't "the law" dictate our lives?
Be careful Fred, I hear a tone of "fanaticism" in your post.
Yes the law does dictate our lives. we are a nation of laws.
So how does that square with Fred's contention that you "do what you have to do when it comes to your children"?
I am familiar with someone who home school's their children. They submitted all the required paper work but the state asked for additional information which was not provided as it was not required by law.
So what is a person to do when the truant officer shows up threatening to get Childrens Services to remove ALL the children from the home?
Are we a "nation of laws" or do we "do what we have to do"?
Who wins when the laws conflict with what you know is right?
