Objections by UK home educators to the promotional tour by the people at the Old Schoolhouse Magazine continue unabated. The reason for the strong antipathy to the tour remains the same: the magazine promotes books and articles by Debi and Michael Pearl who advocate the beating of children, including babies, with various implements such as plumbers piping.
It is not only right and good that British HEors object so strongly to the tour, it is now a matter of self-preservation. It has become essential that it be widely known that the culture of child battery is NOT tolerated in the UK HE community at large. This not least because of the tragic news from the US that a four-year old child whose parents had claimed to be HEing their other children has died as a result of being beaten with PVC piping.
Message to the US...sort this out guys.
UPDATE: Please refer to Daryl's comment below. It is apparent that this tragic death has nothing whatsoever to do with HE. The adoptive parents were investigated by the Child Protection Services before the adoption, so the obvious point that may be drawn from this
is just how useless this type of assessment really is.
