“One family filed a notice of intent when they began homeschooling last year, but did not know they had to file another notice for this school year,” Kamakawiwoole wrote [and why didn’t the state education nannies tell them they needed to file again?]. “The other family filed their annual notice of intent, but did not submit an educational assessment with their notice because they had not yet completed it, and had been told by their school district that there was no deadline for submitting the assessment.”

America the police state has become a labyrinth of rules, regulations and mandates, the amount of which is impossible to know, let alone comply with. But you know, that ol’ “ignorance of the law is no excuse” excuse wielded by faceless, un-elected bureaucrats wins out every time against the hapless, helpless citizen.
