Single mother Kiarre Harris started researching homeschooling last November. She says her two elementary school aged children weren’t excelling at their failing Buffalo Public Schools.

“I felt that the district was failing my children and that’s when I made the decision to homeschool,” she said.

Harris says she filed documents at Buffalo City Hall, following all the steps, informing the district of her intent to homeschool her children. According to documents she provided to 7 Eyewitness News, they’re dated December 7th and the district says it received her paperwork.

“I spoke directly to the homeschool coordinator and she told me from this point on my children were officially un-enrolled from school.”

Things took a turn when she says a week later, Child Protective Services called, wondering why her kids weren’t in school.

“I told them that my kids were homeschooled now and that I could furnish the documents if they need to see them.”

Thinking everything was fine, Harris says she went on with her homeschooling, but then, less than a month later she says she was confronted by CPS workers and police. According to Harris, they told her they had a court order to take her children and when she told them no, she was arrested for obstruction.

She says she hasn’t seen her kids in three weeks, and they’ve been in a foster institution.

The Buffalo Public School District says it cannot comment on this case due to Federal Laws but says in order for a parent to file for homeschooling, they must have full custody of the children.

Harris says she’s a single parent and has always had full custody until her kids were taken away.

This case is far from finished. The Buffalo Common Council will be addressing it tomorrow.

    Leftists will hurt people to advance their agenda.

    Children that are home schooled can’t be indoctrinated into the Global Progressive National Educational Association’s (NEA) agenda of political correctness. The progressives will send their thugs to destroy families under the “it takes a village to raise an idiot” mantra.

    We can hope the new secretary of education will resist this type of the (NEA) scheme which is Satanic, and restore the rights of parents to raise and educate their children.

    Deut 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
    Deut 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

    The above verses apply to standard education as well as Biblical education, parents should monitor not only what their children are taught in schools, but also what their children are taught in Sunday Schools. Many Church Sunday Schools teach erroneous doctrine, and those that do teach proper doctrine teach what children should believe, but they fail to explain why they should believe what they are taught. The result is that when students are confronted by Satan’s agents (Collage Professors, cult members etc.) that are out to destroy Christianity, they are unable to defend their faith.

    This job falls to the parents and grandparents, to know, and to study to show themselves approved, and not leave their children’s education to those that follow an agenda or are under-educated themselves.

    quality of home school education vs. control and money for public education

  5. david sites, 13 February, 2017

    [this is very wrong] are you for the American quality of education or do you want total control of it? more money thrown at it has not produced the results you hoped for.

    This is undermining your rights as a parent to teach your children if schools are failling

    There is no life or truth in “education” without Jesus.

    Here is an article on this from 3 days ago that is on http://www.mybrownbaby.com , concluding with

    “There should be no wonder as to why Kiarre Harris would remove her children from the grips of inferiority. It doesn’t matter if her kids eat rack of lamb or Ramen noodles: she’s woke. The case against Kiarre stinks for the foulest reason. The more I scrutinize the situation, the more it seems like bureaucratic bullies are overzealous with controlling Black lives. They are less concerned with the children’s welfare and more concerned with keeping Blackness in its rightful place—and according to Americaness, it’s at the very bottom. The bottom of slaveships. The bottom of socio-economics. The bottom of educational achievement.”
