Restoring the "Presumption of Innocence"

Restoring the "Presumption of Innocence"

HB 1580 would restore the "presumption of innocence" (of educational neglect) for all parents who instruct their children at home.

NH parents are tired of Rep. Rous, Rep. Day and others presuming … without due process … that all parents are irresponsible.

On its face their presumption is illogical... as well as unconstitutional. A child wouldn't fall for their line: "Please be responsible, but don't ever expect us to treat you as such."

It's primarily the parent's duty to instruct his child, not the State's.

The hearing is next Thursday at 1:00 p.m. in the Legislative Office Building in Room 205 and 207, unless of course we fill that room to overflowing and have to move the hearing to Representative's Hall. Please SUPPORT HB 1580 and bring a friend.

Public Hearing: 1/21/2010 1:00 P.M. LOB 205-207

HB 1580 would remove all regulation from home education and prevent attacks like HB 368. It would eliminate annual testing and portfolio reviews as well as eliminate termination procedures from law.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.
