NBC's 'Law and Order - Special Victims Unit' and Homeschooling... Being the non-TV watching family we are, a friend let us know about last night's TV show and the negative depiction of homeschoolers. Apparently this episode of Law and Order SVU depicted homeschooling as a potential cover for child abuse and highlighted "lack of regulations" in many states.

Just months after the battle with CBS over similar issues - here we go again. Now I know this is a show and not a news program like CBS was - but still with the lines between entertainment and reality being so fuzzy these days - how many people will walk away believing that as a realistic view of homeschooling families? I hope the answer is not many - however it still can not be tolerated.

Here we go again with the contact info:
