(HomeschoolFreedom.com) -- In 2015 in Michigan, a mother was arrested for killing two of her children and hiding them in the freezer. It turns out that the two children had been dead for two years. Immediately, questions were raised as to how two children could be missing that long, without anyone noticing. No relatives, no neighbors, no school officials, no social workers…no one knew they were gone.
When the mother was arrested, she insisted that her children had been homeschooled. In Michigan, there are no reporting, or standardized testing, requirements for home educated students. This led to a Democratic state representative drafting a bill that would have required annual reporting to local school districts and mandatory bi-annual visits for homeschoolers with CPS workers, police, doctors, psychologists, etc.
In MN in 2015, a seven-year-old boy died from what prosecutors charged was medical neglect. The family was reportedly homeschooling their son. In 2016, a sixteen-year-old girl, who has reported to be a homeschooler in West Des Moines, Iowa died. The parents were charged with starving their adopted daughter to death.
