Register Your Daughter for School or GO TO JAIL.

 The Black HomeSchool website reports that Joseph Rosa is not allowed to homeschool his own child.  A judge ruled that his eight-year-old daughter will be enrolled in school or he'll be sent to jail.

Yes, he's stupid for assuming that state and federal laws don't apply to him.  In Florida, he's supposed to notify the superintendent in writing, include some basic information, maintain a portfolio, and have his daughter take a standardized test each year or submit to an evaluation. 

I get the idea he didn't do any of that stuff.  But forbidding a man from ever homeschooling?  Really?  WHEN have the courts ever forbidden a public school from teaching children when they do a stupid-ass thing, or make a mistake, or disobey the law?  When?

Unjust.  Yes, he's probably a little nuts, but this is unjust.

    1. ... so people like me are probably next on their list. You know? I see that as a different issue, although it sounds as though those people are on a watch list. And their friends. And the cashier at Wal-Mart they talked to... and and and.

  2. Yeah, he should have done what he was supposed to do. But why no second chance?

    1. Exactly. Plus. I think the compulsory education requirements are unconstitutional to begin with. WHY should we have what our children learn be regulated by the STATE? That's enough to scare anybody, or it should be.

  3. He's a little "extra", but the judge went too far. I do wonder if we are only getting part of the story though.. is DFACS on his butt for another reason? Who knows. Meanwhile he needs to find a "private school" homeschool program, and then fight his case in court... if he will consent to such an authority.

    1. Yes, to my mind his cray-cray and his Constitutional rights to direct the upbringing of his daughter are two. separate. issues. unless there is real documented abuse going on. I hope he moves to another state with no notification, and therefore, no tracking. That's what I'd be doing with ZERO notice.
