Extractions: Posted on 07/08/2000 12:33:53 PDT by Luis Gonzalez LOCKNEY, Texas (AP) - Larry Tannahill has spent his life working the land in west Texas, where livestock and agriculture dominate the economy. His roots are deep and so are his convictions. Tannahill is refusing to allow his 12-year-old son, Brady, to be tested for drugs by the Lockney Independent School District. Mandatory testing for the district's teachers and 400 students in grades 6 through 12 was completed Thursday. Brady, the only holdout, now faces the same punishment as someone who tested positive: a 21-day suspension from extracurricular activities, at least three days' in-school suspension and three sessions of substance abuse counseling. The sixth-grader also could be required to take a drug test every month for a year. Each time he refuses, he will be considered a repeat offender, and the punishment gets more strict. Tannahill planned to appeal his son's suspension.
Outside The Beltway: PARENTAL RIGHTS parental rights with the beliefs of the society in matters of religious practice? Surely, parents should be allowed to teach as people who teach high school science can understand http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/archives/004433.html

Main Richard Mouw is resigned to losing the cultural wars, but hopes to at least be able to practice his religion in peace: Obviously, when it comes to matters of public policy we must also ask others to respect our convictions as wellespecially our right to raise our children in the fear of the Lord without having the deck stacked against us by educators and the shapers of popular culture. Matthew Yglesias isn't so sure: For reasons I don't understand, a lot of people of all political persuasions feel that what comes after the "obviously" here has a lot of pull. But I don't get it? Obviously, folks should be permitted to hold whatever religious beliefs they like. Moreover, they should be allowed to act in accordance with these beliefs insofar as doing so does not cause harm to others. You can't, for example, engage in human sacrifice, but all non-harming forms of worship are permitted and the public sector should make reasonable accommodations for the various sorts of funny hats folks of different persuasions feel compelled to wear. And yet, you can't engage in human sacrifice or ritual pickpocketing or celebrate the winter solstace by burning my house down. Your freedom of religion extends to you, not to your ability to exercize your will over others. So why is it so commonly thought that parents should have some kind of "right" to indoctrinate their children in the way they see fit? Why is that preferable to state coersion?

Extractions: OCTOBER 26, 1995 The Rutherford Institute is an international, non-profit civil liberties organizations specializing in the defense of religious freedom. For more than twelve years, The Rutherford Institute has been committed to defending the rights of religious people in America and throughout the world. While The Rutherford Institute, led by Founder and President John W. Whitehead, handles a wide variety of issues impacting religious freedom, it however, was our experience litigating issues involving parental rights that led this Subcommittee to invite The Rutherford Institute to testify today. Over the past couple of years, The Rutherford Institute has witnessed an alarming increase in the number of requests for assistance in the parental rights area. Last year, The Rutherford Institute handled 670 cases that we considered possible subjects of litigation. At least 155 of these cases involved parental rights issues. This figure includes excusal and curricula matters in the public schools, home education issues, and custody battles between the state and parent. In some of these cases, The Rutherford Institute witnesses government agencies attempting to undermine and usurp parental responsibility. For example, in the case involving a Michigan family, discussed below, local education officials arrested a mother for home schooling her children and tried to prosecute the children as "incorrigible" and truant juveniles. Cases such as this do not involve abuse or neglect. They frequently represent situations where the state seeks to penalize parents who have different parenting philosophies than certain state officials.

Extractions: Posted on 05/27/2000 16:20:04 PDT by studythis This Friday my 8th grade son was removed from a school bus and transported to the police station. He was placed in a solitary room for questioning. His only crime was not talking to police and identifying a person on the bus who was consuming alcohol until one of his parents was present. The rest of the students on the bus were made to sign affidavits identifying the offender, yet my son would not sign until he could get his parents advice. He is a great young person, involved in sports, applying to the National Honor Society, and never has been in any kind of trouble. We have a zero-tolerance policy at our school and my wife has informed me she was required to sign a document at the beginning of the school year giving permission to for this type of action. Other parents have told us we should consult a lawyer. I would like feedback from FR. Posted on 05/27/2000 16:20:04 PDT by studythis

Extractions: A: These investigations are usually initiated by a call to your state's child abuse hotline or calls to your local Department of Child Welfare (this term varies from state to state) by someone who suspects that a child has been abused. Typically, you do not have to allow the workers into your home without a warrant. However, if the officials feel the need to do so, they will obtain a warrant and return with a police officer and demand entry. (Of note, if it is suspected that a child is in imminent danger, the workers or the police will enter your home without your consent or a warrant.) Whether or not they can or will take your children depends on whom the charges are against and what type of charges you, a caretaker, or a sibling are being accused of.

Extractions: To complement the constitutional grounds discussed herein, Congress, in 1978, sought to protect parental rights when it enacted the Protection of Pupil Rights Act ("PPRA"), sometimes referred to as the Hatch Amendment. 20 U.S.C. § 1232h. The PPRA permits parents to inspect classroom materials and requires parental consent before psychiatric or psychological testing or treatment can be administered to students. In 1994, Congress clarified what types of materials parents must be allowed to inspect and what types of surveys fall under the authority of the provision. The seven categories of surveys include those regarding:

Extractions: Focus on the Family is committed to the institution of the family and its defense because we believe that God has ordained the family as the most fundamental institution of social order for the benefit of humankind. As the oldest of all human institutions, the family exists to propagate the race and to provide a secure haven in which to nurture, teach and love the younger generation. This is the teaching of both biblical and natural law. These truths are so self-evident that even the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights recognizes them in Article 16:

Extractions: ISSUES CALENDAR NEWS/ UPDATES CONTACT ... LINKS September 18, 2003 Our testimony at the State House before the Education Committee against so-called "parental notification" bills, bills which would allow "some parents" to make decisions about what the whole class should study. They are principally directed at sex education and AIDS prevention courses, but in some jurisdictions, they are also used to censor the curriculum. - Sheila Decter I (Sheila Decter) am here on behalf of the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action and Citizens for Public Schools. Parental rights legislation is not typically about family autonomy or the right of individual parents to guide the education of their own children. It is the attempt by a minority of parents to proscribe what all children may learn. Often these bills threaten the rights and well being of minors, jeopardizing their access to sexuality education, birth control, and AIDS prevention services, etc. These are issues of both individual health and well being and more importantly public health that affects the greater community. Often the student most in need of information about AIDS comes from a family who doesn't talk about such issues.
