Again, Amish children aren’t allowed to go to school past the 8th grade. They don’t receive homeschooling to make up for it. None of them. That is child abuse. And you’re saying it’s OK, that it’s fine to condemn people to a life on the margins of society.

Some kids who go to school don’t get a good education, clearly. But very many do, probably most. NO Amish children receive a good education because all of them are denied schooling. Tht

And you don’t care? Who stole your decency and humanity? What caused to be such a cruel person that you’re taking time out of your day to argue that people should be denied the human right of education? Within the next 20 years, half a million Amish kids are going to be denied schooling and education. Think about that. And ask yourself what’s wrong with your morality and your conscience.
