Organisation for home schooling gets help to sue New York

Homeschooling group sues New York City over 'systematic mistreatment'
The Heartland Institute, 2 November 2017

"A homeschooling advocacy group is suing the government of New York City (NYC) for “systematic mistreatment of homeschoolers” because the city’s slow processing of paperwork has resulted in homeschooling families being falsely accused of crimes."

" Acevedo contacted Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) for advice.
    After many phone calls, another visit from the CPS investigator, considerable inconvenience, and much unnecessary anxiety for Tanya and her son, Tj Schmidt [HSLDA’s contact attorney for New York] persuaded the case worker to close the investigation,” the HSLDA website reported in December 2016."

It is of course very serious that the CPS will not on its own initiative contact the municipality, close its investigation of the concerned families, and join with the families to protest the way NYC is bringing trouble and anxiety on parents and children. It certainly should not be necessary for families to seek legal help to deal with the CPS as well as with the municipality in such cases.

HSLDA states: "On December 5, HSLDA filed a civil rights lawsuit against New York City public schools over their systematic mistreatment of homeschooling families. We are asking for money damages and for a court to order the New York City bureaucracy to simply follow New York’s homeschooling regulation."
