Harvard Summit to Discuss Regulating Homeschooling
by Darren Jones (March 24, 2020)
[Editor’s note: Scary stuff indeed. This Harvard Summit to Discuss Regulating Homeschooling is a conference that aims to explore ways to restrict homeschooling. HSLDA is on the agenda, but they’re not invited. One of the organizers, Professor Elizabeth Bartholet, recently recommended “a presumptive ban on homeschooling.” WSW.]
To someone of my generation (I’m proudly Gen-X), the word “summit” evokes President Carter bringing warring sides of the Middle East together, or President Reagan meeting in icy Reykjavik with General Secretary Gorbachev.
Well, the homeschool community may be interested in a summit scheduled for June 18-19 at Harvard Law School to discuss “a controversial practice”—homeschooling.*
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is being billed as a means of bringing together leaders in education and child welfare policy to discuss child rights and homeschooling.
