A North Carolina

judge has ordered three children to attend public schools this fall because the homeschooling their mother has provided over the last four years needs to be "challenged."

The children, however, have tested above their grade levels – by as much as two years.

The decision is raising eyebrows among homeschooling families, and one friend of the mother has launched a website to publicize the issue.

What?!?!?!?! I'm furious! And I'm a teacher, who was homeschooled! Sigh. This is sad. Government has no right to tell us how to educate our children, just like we were talking about last week. Thanks for sharing this, Liss. I'm going to send this to my Mom.

Just saw this today! We need to pray - why have we given the government so much power in our lives? Why do we allow them to tell us what we have to do educationally and in other areas? This is how government got too big and intrusive!
