    receive a background check?

    What constitutes an at risk parent?

    Being poor?
    Being religious? Or of a specific religion? And if so how is that determined?
    Or
    Having some kind of police record? If so-any kind of public record, or specific kinds of records?

    And who in your opinion is qualified to home school their children? And how do you come by these conclusions?

    You are suggesting singling people out for home schooling for special scrutiny to prevent abuse in a world we we don't prevent bullying or sexual harassment in public schools.

    And if a parent were to object to this intensified scrutiny, it's because that parent has something to hide--where have I heard that one before?

    I am sorry that these children were being abused, I truly am. But I have no intention of letting YOU or anyone else punish me for someone else's actual or imagined sins.

    If you want to prevent child abuse and domestic violence, a living wage would be a nice first start. It removes a lot of the stressors that parents face, when they are confronted by the notion that no matter how hard they work, they are unable to provide the basic necessities for themselves or their children. I realize that this isn't he feel good scapegoating technique so popular with Americans, but wouldn't it be a nice step in the correct direction.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
