Vatican to the UN: all parents have the right to homeschool

With some of the things that are taught in public schools,  I'm really glad to see more parents homeschooling their children.In a significant victory for parental rights worldwide, a Vatican representative said all parents have the right to homeschool their children. “The State should respect the choices that parents make for their children and avoid attempts at ideological indoctrination,” the permanent observer mission of the Holy See to the United Nations wrote in a statement released last Tuesday. Parents “have the right and duty to choose schools inclusive of homeschooling, and they must possess the freedom to do so, which in turn, must be respected and facilitated by the State.”“That’s huge,” said Jeremiah Lorrig, director of media relations at the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), told LifeSiteNews.com. “Having the support of the Vatican ambassador would invaluable to the homeschool movement.”A growing number of parents opt to educate their children at home because of the poor quality of schools available, or because schools increasingly promote values that conflict with traditional Christian morality.Last July, Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill requiring California public schools to teach “the role and contributions of” homosexuals in American history.story
