    Tim Haas pointed out that the social workers’ union blamed homeschooling for the Jackson case.

    Carla Katz, the president of the Communications Workers of America, a union representing social workers in New Jersey testified at the hearing. In her remarks, President Katz stated the following: “Home schooling creates gaps. Nearly 20% of all abuse cases are reported by schools. When children are outside the school system, extra protections are critical. There are no home schooling regulations that would require homeschooled children to see anyone from the public education system. There is no cross-referencing with the Department of Education to look for children who are in the ‘system’ but have not been seen by anyone.”

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe the Jackson kids were seen by someone. In fact, they were seen by a member of the social workers’ union 38 times! Harry Truman is spinning in his grave.
