A recent OneNewsNow article, covered a story that took place in New Hampshire, surrounding a court's decision to force a young girl to attend public school after the separation of her parents.
Apparently, Mom had homeschooled the girl for a while and was supposedly doing quite well. However, Dad wanted his daughter to attend public school.
As it turns out, it was not the quality of the education that was in question, but the fact that, during homeschool, the girl was exposed to Christian ideas.
After a lengthy disagreement, a guardian ad litem was appointed who, according the report, felt that "it would be remarkable if a ten-year-old child who spends her school time with her mother and the vast majority of all her other time with her mother would seriously consider adopting any other religious point of view."
The girl's attorney is concerned that the court was erroneous in focusing on the girl's religion as a means of forcing her to attend public school, rather than going by the girl's academic performance which, according to the above report, is excellent.
