Homeschoolers win round against United Nations But officials warn crackdown on family rights expected to continue
Homeschoolers have won a round in the long fight against the crackdown on family rights contained in the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child, but experts say they need to keep up their guard.
The convention, which is not yet ratified in the United States but has been adopted by numerous other nations, orders that children can choose their own religion with parents only having the authority to advise them, the government can override a parent's decision regarding a child if a social worker disagrees, a child has a right to a government review of every parental decision and Christian schools would violate the law if they refused to teach children "alternative worldviews."
The conflict had arisen over legislation that was proposed in the United Kingdom, called the Children, Schools and Families Bill, that would have set into law many of the provisions and issues demanded by the U.N. plan.
