Parental rights and religious freedom have been the two foundations to establish a constitutional right for parents to teach their children at home. Several years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court weakened the free exercise of religion claim as a foundation for homeschooling so that in order for homeschoolers to claim a fundamental right to homeschool, they must be able to combine the free exercise right with the parental rights claim. Currently this is not a problem, but because of the fragile nature of freedom, moral decay, complacency and apathy, homeschooling freedoms are in jeopardy. An additional threat is the opposition from the intellectual elites based on a belief that the state, through public schools, should have access to all children to teach tolerance for others, which leads to collectivism. Homeschoolers are in their cross-hairs and are clearly at risk.
