Then They Came for Us

UK home educators in the 1970s and 80s were not infrequently threatened with the removal of the children by the state. It doesn't happen nearly so often nowadays, what with home education having achieved a modest degree of acceptance and perhaps more significantly with the HE community being such a strong, joined-up and vocal one, but for some the fear still lurks, if perhaps somewhat irrationally.

David Friedman argues very cogently that this fear could and should be laid to rest once and for all. I think he's right and his solution a good one.
