Judge Orders 3-Year-Old into Day Care for “Socialization”

Post by Admin on Tue Jun 07, 2011 7:36 pm

Four children ages 9, 7, 5 and 3 from a homeschooling family in Notre-Dame-des-Bois in Québec, Canada have been ordered into public school for socialization. The Roman Catholic family, who have been homeschooling their children for four years, were reported to the youth protection services (YPS) for neglect and had a four-day trial in November 2010. The judge in the case, Judge Nicole Bernier, ordered that the children remain in school or in day care until YPS officials approved a plan for socialization. However, because of apparent bias against homeschooling and these parents, this is unlikely to ever happen.

HSLDA of Canada, a sister organization to HSLDA, has invested significant financial resources in the family’s defense. In a press release, Paul Faris, president of HSLDA of Canada, expressed dismay over the outcome.

“This is a shocking decision,” said Faris. “Even more concerning is the judge’s decision to order the younger children who were not of compulsory school age into day care for socialization.”

Since the law does not require a 3 year old and a 5 year to attend school in Québec, Canada, the judge is wrong in forcing the family to place them in daycare for socialization. What about other 3 year olds who do not go to daycare and stay at home with their parents? Is the judge going to force them to attend daycare, too?
