Is Educating Your Own Child a Crime?
Arons, Stephen
Saturday Review (New York 1975), V5 n29 p16-20 Nov 15 1978
In 1978, the Amherst School Department rejected Peter and Susan Perchemlides' proposal for educating their eight-year-old son at home and cited them in court for failing to send the child to school. The author describes this controversy and reviews previous court cases on compulsory schooling. (SJL)
