The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals made a great argument for homeschooling last week: Schools are not constitutionally required to protect students from rapists.
We’re not talking about teachers and principals taking extraordinary measures to wrest kids away from bad guys. The school in this case released a nine-year-old girl to Tommy Keyes — who was not authorized to sign her out from school — at least six times. Keyes took the girl from the school, raped her, and returned her to school. (He is now in prison.)
