Family Law Judges are allowing parents of divorce to keep their children out of school, Texas is allowing parents to falsely use the word "homeschool" when the Homeschool Law clearly states you must educate your child in a bonified manner which means you must be actually teaching your child and not just saying you are. In my case my ex was allowed to pull my 14 year old son out of highschool and say he was "homeschooling" my son, because my ex was in trouble two times with the truancy court and didn't want to get in trouble again. This was an escape goat for him and others who are using the word "homeschool". My son is 17 years old and only has an 8th grade education in 2012. He has been out of school 3 years of High School. He is isolated and lacks the social skills he needs for a great future. He suffers from anxiety, depression and ADD. My ex and other parents in the family court system are allowing these children to do what they want to win them over as to keep them from the other parent. No one in office wants to deal with this problem as they think it is set in stone about Homeschooling. I fully agree with parents who are actually homeschooling their children, but for those parents hiding behind the word it is hurting our children. Please help in my fight to enforce this law and allow CPS to take control when a child is not being homeschooled. As of today Educational Neglect is considered neglect in Texas, but CPS states they cannot interefere with homeschooling. State Representatives, School Superintendants, Truancy Court Judges, and anyone dealing with education tells me that they cannot change this law. This is a "sham". Please sign my petition so that our Texas children do not suffer from lack of a great education and a great future. In the long run it effects everyone.
