SCHOOL TO HOMESCHOOLERS: SIGN UP OR FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES -- Florida district gives parents 3 days to register children
(by Bob Unruh, WND EXCLUSIVE) -- A number of homeschool parents in Florida have been ordered by a public school district to register their children in classes within three days or face “criminal prosecution” under state law.
A meeting within the next week likely will determine whether school officials will face a lawsuit in response to the threat.
The issue is being addressed by the Home School Legal Defense Association, which said its members in the Santa Rosa County School District received letters demanding information that parents are not required to provide under state law.
The information included Social Security number, race and grade level.
The parents also received a letter demanding they comply with a new district policy requiring them to show proof of residency and to prove they no longer were registered in whatever district they most recently had been under.
