In case you haven’t heard, Bill 374 has been proposed in Connecticut’s General Assembly seemingly in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy. Just another brilliant response to a random act of violence; you know, because the state’s gun control laws worked so well. Notice how everything is starting to become “mandatory” these days. I wonder how a young Albert Einstein or Henry David Thoreau would have tested under a “mandatory mental health assessment.” This is one of the most dangerous and ridiculous ideas I have seen in a while. This is the definition of a “slippery slope.” From Reason:
A national homeschooling organization is sounding the alarm against a bill proposed in the Connecticut legislature which would require both public school and homeschooled children to undergo a behavioral health assessment at various stages of child development.
Bill 374, proposed in the General Assembly by sponsors Senator Toni Harp and Representative Toni Walker, is likely in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, which took the lives of 20 children and 6 adults this past December.
Don’t forget to send a thank note to Toni and Toni.
