2. Two Major Attacks on Parental Rights

Delaware has outlawed spanking while New York City schools are
distributing "Plan B" to minors without parental consent--proof that
parental rights in America are eroding at an alarming rate. But there

3. German Judge: Homeschooling "Damages" Kids

custody rights simply for homeschooling. HSLDA intends to press for
reform during a global conference on homeschooling to be held November
in Germany.
