UN Treaties threaten Homeschool Families

This is scary.

The legal standard under the UNCRC is the "best interests of the child." In other words, the state has the authority to determine how children should be raised and educated.
UN Treaty Used to Threaten Homeschool Families
By Christian Newswire Tuesday, September 7, 2010
PURCELLVILLE, Va., —This week the fate of four homeschooling families will be decided in Botswana. The families, adherents to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, have been ordered by a judge to send their children to public school.



Despite the judges’ findings indicating that the children were cared for and that the parents took steps to provide for the education of their children, they still need to go to public school because Botswana has acceded to the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The legal standard under the UNCRC is the “best interests of the child.” In other words, the state has the authority to determine how children should be raised and educated.

“HSLDA has warned about the danger of the UNCRC to homeschooling families. It gives almost unlimited powers to judges to decide how children should be raised,” said Mike Donnelly, Director of International Relations for HSLDA. “We are asking our 85,000 member families to contact the Botswana Embassy and Office of the President of Botswana to protect these families’ basic rights to decide what is best for their children,” he added.

The Botswana families are determined to continue homeschooling. “I must obey God. The schools here are corrupt and teach my children things that go against our faith and our values. I cannot allow them to go to these schools,” said Mr. Modimoothata, a retired technician and father of four teenagers. His wife Margaret is a senior project manager for Botswana railways.

“We find the behavior of the Botswana police and courts outrageous and hope that more responsible leadership will be applied to remedy this situation without undue trauma to these children,” said Leendert Van Oostrum, Director of The Pestalozzi Trust, a South Africa-based homeschooling legal defense organization that is representing the families.

For more information, read the HSLDA article “Homeschoolers Interrogated by Secret Police, Face Imprisonment,”

Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is a 27-year-old, 85,000 member non-profit organization and the preeminent national association advocating the legal right of parents to homeschool their children.

A United Nations human rights treaty that could prohibit children from being spanked or homeschooled, ban youngsters from facing the death penalty and forbid parents from deciding their families' religion is on America's doorstep, a legal expert warns.

I hate to sound like a rebel of sorts, but usually isn't it when a child fights other children and disrespects teachers they are expelled from schools? Well, if it happens in America where States try to force children to go to public schools and parents have no say in it, teach your children to fight and have them tell every other student and teacher they are all going to hell. Pretty much makes it very simple to have your children back home and bringing them up right. Of course making sure they know what they were doing was playing the system to get back into homeschool. The family should always stick together, even children need to be in on things that may help them and the family benefit from a cause.

Hey Ponun,
Pretty cool idea, except it probably would not work if the PTB already knew you were a "former" home-school family when this was attempted. But on the other side of the coin, it could be worth a try...jpf
