But… but…

…but homeschooling parents might abuse their children!

Three high school wrestlers face expulsion based on accusations they hog-tied a learning-disabled teammate and zapped him with a grill igniter. Officials call it a hazing prank that went too far. None of the boys were arrested but Volusia County’s sheriff’s office filed felony complaints with prosecutors, seeking felony charges of aggravated battery and false imprisonment.

School officials said two hazing incidents occurred in a wrestling practice room at the high school Tuesday.

Volusia County Sheriff’s Department offers the following account of the incident:

“According to witnesses, the victim — a 17-year-old wrestler — was tackled to the ground by team members while inside the wrestling room, hogtied with a jump rope and then shocked 20 or more

times with an igniter device.”

Not to mention:

A 10-year-old boy has been suspended from a Pompano Beach elementary school amid allegations he raped an 8-year-old classmate. The alleged attack happened last Friday at Sanders Park Elementary School. A school spokesman said an investigation began Monday and the decision was made Wednesday to suspend the boy.

Counseling is available to both the boy and girl.

Well, as long as counseling is available, I’m sure everything will be okay. Here’s the main point. Abusive parents will ALWAYS have access to their children. Abusive teachers and schoolmates won’t if you homeschool. I don’t intend to go through the mathematics of how many more potentially abusive relationships one is likely to enjoy in a public schooled career versus a homeschooled one, but I’m quite sure that it is several orders of magnitude higher.
