Denise Mafi, a nine-year veteran of homeschooling, has confirmed to WND she and her children packed up their essentials – clothes and homeschool materials – and fled Utah over the weekend, spending more than 50 hours on a bus trip to another undisclosed part of the country.
There she has obtained an empty home, and is spending the Christmas break trying to find beds for her children and herself, and after the New Year, will involve the children in a local homeschooling process.
Public education advocates are becoming more openly brazen with their assertions of first rights to your children. Utah makes criminals of parents who try to educate their children in the way they choose:
She was told she was being accused of four counts of failing to abide by the state's compulsory education law, with a penalty of up to six months in jail on each count, because the district alleged she had not submitted a required affidavit for the long-completed 2006-2007 school year.
Make no mistake, most states, including North Carolina have similar laws.
The judge in the case is an oligarch who seems to have no trouble with imposing his will on the serfs who appear before him:
She [Mafi] has reported, and her recollection of events has been confirmed by attorneys, that Johansen told her homeschooling fails 100 percent of the time and he would not allow it.
How long will you suffer this, parents? How long before you say enough is enough and take back your children's futures?
