Behavioral Health Assessments

Here's Bill 374 to surely violate our freedoms as homeschoolers.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
That section 10-206 of the general statutes be amended to require (1) each pupil enrolled in public school at grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 and each home-schooled child at ages 12, 14 and 17 to have a confidential behavioral health assessment, the results of which shall be disclosed only to the child's parent or guardian, and (2) each health care provider performing a child's behavioral health assessment to complete the appropriate form supplied by the State Board of Education verifying that the child has received the assessment.
Statement of Purpose:
To provide behavioral health assessments to children.

Here's an article to go along with the Bill.  I just wonder who these people are who think they know how to assess what is the proper behavior for children to have. I'm sure they aren't well-seasoned mothers and fathers with high standards of morality.  Of course "proper behavior" tends to be "proper socialization"  which tends to generally violate the 6th and 9th Commandments.  We've been through the social worker routine and the fine Social Worker actually said to me (I had just had my 10th baby), "I only have one child and I can't handle him, how can YOU handle 10?"  Methinks if I had said, "Grace" it would have made her guess we had a maid akin to Mary Poppins.

Heaven help us.... and especially our children!
