Late-breaking News

On February 12, 2004, New Jersey's Office of the Child Advocate released its preliminary report on the horrific child abuse case of four allegedly starved adopted children. After months of testimony and investigation, the report concludes, "In short, every step of the way, the New Jersey child welfare system failed these four boys."

The Office of the Child Advocate's report mentions the parents' claim that they were homeschooling, but notes that they were not even following New Jersey's very minimal requirements for homeschooling foster children. In his recommendations for reform of New Jersey's Department of Youth and Family Services, the state child advocate, unlike the New York Times, does not call for more regulation of homeschoolers; he instead focuses on the true problem of the "debilitated" system of New Jersey's child protective services.
