Texas case mulls if home-school kids have to learn something

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A much-watched case headed to the Texas Supreme Court could have broad implications on the nation’s booming home-school ranks.

At issue: Where do religious liberty and parental rights to educate one’s own children stop and obligations to ensure home-schooled students actually learn something begin?

An El Paso family, the McIntyres, is accused of failing to teach its nine hone-schooled children anything because they were “waiting to be raptured.”

But the family says its children were educated and has accused the local school district of being anti-Christian.

An appeals court already ruled against them, saying no family has won a case claiming an absolute right to home school.

By some estimates, Texas leads the nation in home-schooled students.
