Giving parents the right to choose the type of environment as well as the type of schooling best for their children shouldn't be tampered with, schools can in some ways be toxic for well raised children, therefore if some children can be at home and learn, why take that away from them?

The SA Education Department are not able to maintain the current government schools functioning correctly. Now they want to interfere in the home schooling systems which function well.
They should get there own house in order FIRST. Another way the ANC led government want to run the lives of all South African citizen.

Home schooling is a form of freedom of education. It is those peoples perogative as to what form of education they want their kids to be part of. Why is the government interfering with a system that is working? Rather focus on government schools that are not meeting basic human rights, ghost teachers receiving salaries that could be put to better use, and unqualified people being appointed in positions they aren't qualified for just because of their race. The Education department is not looking after their schools buildings and properties. This is creating a ripple effect especially on children who want to have a better future for themselves and their families. SGB's are paying for property rezoning and consolidations with their privately raised money in order to develop the school because the government refuses to pay, and without those applications they can't add buildings to their grounds in order to develop the schools to their utmost potential. Look at the log in your own eye = government education dept, before pointing out errors in other/private educational divisions

Man's idols will fall down and turn to dust in the eyes of the world. The government can try all they like to snatch and murder the souls of children, by forcing them away from their parents or prescribing what they should learn, but Christ will not let go of his people and they will win out in the end. Kiss the Son, lest he smite you in His anger. May He have mercy on the dark souls that would think of implementing this regulations.

BELA: BLATANT EDUCATIONAL LIBERTY ANTAGONISATION

I utterly condemn the proposed Basic Education Laws Amendment (BELA) Bill – advocated for the supposed adherence to the right to basic education (enshrined in section 29(1) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996) – as an explicitly and shamelessly institutionalised infringement on the indisputable liberty of South African citizenry to exercise individual and voluntarily collective autonomy in the assorted - but nevertheless - viable actualisations of basic education. The South African Institute of Race Relations - as expressed in their 'Your child, your educational choice!' campaign [https://irr.org.za/campaigns/childrens-education#campaignMore] - asserts that this Bill would afford the greater transference of effective authority from parents to bureaucrats in establishing additional regulation regarding school admission, language utilisation, disciplinary action and home education as well as enabling the employment of specialised advisory units concerning curriculum and assessment, the monopolisation of relevant educational publications, the consolidation of public schools and the imposition of further regulation (and related violations) by the Minister of Basic Education: resulting in the exacerbation of educational standards, educator emigration and political corruption as well as the undermining of 'the language and cultural rights of communities, parents and learners'. AfriForum declares the enactment of this Bill to be an intransient and unrectifiable governmental encroachment - on the constitutional settlement of 1994 that provisions for the protection and progression of Afrikaans and other indigenous
languages within academia - with this intrinsic invalidation of certain cultural identities and linguistic diversity as well as the subsequent enforcement of English hegemony pertaining to educational establishments and endeavours ('Government breaches 1994 settlementwith planned amendments to the SchoolsAct, targeting Afrikaans schools' [https://afriforum.co.za/en/government-breaches-1994-settlementwith-planned-amendments-to-the-schoolsact-targeting-afrikaans-schools/]): necessitating the existence of (what essentially equates to) civil rights initiatives such as the 'Red Afrikaans' petition [https://vegenbou.co.za/en/red-afrikaans/].

The government has no biblical right to education my children or any other parent's children, its the parents responsibility to guide and education their children to be godly men and woman of the future.
If someone should not be fit to educate their children, the church and the community should help.
Since when did we become so lazy as to give the government the right to indoctrinate our children!!!??

It is the parent's responsibility to choose the education of their children, not the government.
