Parents reserve the right to choose what is best for their child’s wellbeing. And that should mean they and only they have the ability to decide their child’s educational, religious, and medical decisions. Parentalrights.org
Homeschooling in Illinois
While Illinois enjoys some of the most lax homeschooling laws, the same cannot be said for Illinois courts. Judges are often biased against homeschoolers and do not follow the “child’s best interest” statute, but instead use their own bias in rulings.
HLSDA covers legal cases for parents vs. the state. But, what about parent vs. the other parent? HLSDA does have a list of lawyers they recommend, and also homeschool case precedents. There are homeschool experts, most certified teachers, who will consult homeschooling families and also act as witnesses in court. In Illinois, join H.O.U.S.E. Ad Hoc to support local homeschooling lobbying efforts.
