Vatican Tells U.N. All Parents Have Right to Homeschool

Ben Johnson : May 8, 2012 : LifeSiteNews.com

"That's huge. Having the support of the Vatican ambassador will be invaluable to the homeschool movement." -Jeremiah Lorrig, HSLDA

(Turtle Bay, NY)—In a significant victory for parental rights worldwide, a Vatican representative said all parents have the right to homeschool their children.

homeschool "The State should respect the choices that parents make for their children and avoid attempts at ideological indoctrination," the permanent observer mission of the Holy See to the United Nations wrote in a statement released on April 24.

Parents, it said, "have the right and duty to choose schools inclusive of homeschooling, and they must possess the freedom to do so, which in turn, must be respected and facilitated by the State."

"That's huge," said Jeremiah Lorrig, director of media relations at the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). "Having the support of the Vatican ambassador will be invaluable to the homeschool movement."

"It's a constant tug-of-war between homeschool liberty and the desire to control parents," Lorrig said.
