NY Single Mother JAILED for Homeschooling Her Children Legally!


Two children have been in foster care for three weeks and a mother was put in jail because she decided to homeschool them. She has not seen them since!

Kiarre Harris started researching homeschooling because her two elementary school aged children weren’t excelling.

“I felt that the district was failing my children and that’s when I made the decision to homeschool,” she said.

In December 2016, she submitted written paperwork notifying the school district of her intent to pull her two children from their schools.  That paperwork was stamped, indicating the District had received it on December 7th.

“I spoke directly to the homeschool coordinator and she told me from this point on my children were officially un-enrolled from school,” Harris told 7 Eyewitness News.

Things took a turn when she says a week later, Child Protection Services (CPS) called, wondering why her kids weren’t in school.

“I told them that my kids were homeschooled now and that I could furnish the documents if they needed to see them.”

Thinking everything was fine, Harris says she went on with her homeschooling, but then, less than a month later she says she was confronted by CPS workers and police. According to Harris, they told her they had a court order to take her children and when she told them no, she was arrested for obstruction.

Buffalo Councilman Ulysees O. Wingo Sr. says it is “utterly unacceptable” that Harris was arrested for “educational neglect” because she decided to homeschool her children.

“Someone, somewhere messed up, and that someone needs to face the music,” Wingo said at a Buffalo Common Council meeting Tuesday afternoon.

Watch her incredible story!

Yeah, someone messed up alright and I hope she sues the state and the school district for MILLIONS! This should have never happened. Someone somewhere did this on purpose and had nefarious purposes. They need to be locked up. THAT would send a message that this is unacceptable!

WKBW Reported:

The Buffalo Public School District says it cannot comment on this case due to Federal Laws but says in order for a parent to file for homeschooling, they must have full custody of the children. The District also says that in general, a letter of intent is submitted and it is acknowledged along with the requirements for submitting the Individual Education Plans (IEP’s). The District says the children are not to be taken out of school until such time those plans are approved.

Insanity! WHO the Hell do they think they are!

Well, I think they are about to find out:

“This does not pass the smell test.  This looks bad,” Councilman Wingo said Tuesday night.

“Did anyone from the school reach out to the mother?  We don’t know.  It’s very important for us to look at the details and get all of the details,” Wingo said.

Someone’s head should roll!
