No Charges for Mom Who Homeschooled Kids

A judge dropped the criminal charges against the mom at the center of a homeschooling battle that got national attention.

Kiarre Harris’ attorney said criminal contempt and obstruction charges were dropped this week, and he and his client are now focused on having a neglect petition dismissed in family court.

Harris made headlines back in February after she was arrested and her kids were taken from her when she took them out of Buffalo Public Schools to homeschool them.

There’s still Child Protective Services (CPS) and family court oversight while the case involving the neglect petition plays out.

Attorney Matthew Albert said once the family court issue is resolved, he plans to file a civil suit against Buffalo Public Schools, Buffalo Police, and CPS.

“My client has been persecuted, so just as anyone else who has been wrongfully persecuted, she has rights.  We intend to hopefully – it’s a one step at a time process – she’s been violated by many different systems in many different ways, so we have to keep doing what we’re doing and remove one hurdle at a time,” said Albert.

So that’s it? The perpetrators go unpunished? Many people need to pay for their incompetence, like, LOSE their jobs for example .

They’re legally allowed to kidnap people’s children without proof and to lie on people
. I know from personal experience and I wasn’t as fortunate as her to have a lawyer to fight for me. I had a public pretender.

I’ve been fighting this corrupted system for almost three years. It is disgusting. My child has been missing since removed from my home based on false allegations that we’re found untrue in court yet DCF still supported the case and I’m still fighting to get my children. I have had two for over a yr and one for three months yet three still in care. Their lies are outrageous. The system is failing our family’s ine at a time. It really means so much to have the news cover this story bc locally they won’t cover such stories and us parents are terrified to even face them.

A parent has the right to do whatever it takes for her children to succeed, and if it means homeschooling, so be it. So much is wrong with public schools today, that it would take forever for me to list. Kudos to this mother for standing her ground.

We don’t know every single detail, but on the surface, it looks like she did everything she was supposed to do. This family was put through an immense amount of pain and distress for nothing. They owe this mom and these kids an apology, first of all. And second, she deserves to be compensated for every cent she lost in lost wages and in attorneys fees, etc., not to mention emotional distress! Good for her for standing up for her self and her kids.

The mother did the correct by trying to homeschool her kids cause those kids get higher test scores and that will hopefully keep them away from the liberal “logjc” and reasoning when it comes to US history and politics do they can learn the truth.

Only one reason why this is happening. Buffalo is probably having declining school rates either due to homeschooling or lack of Buffalo residents. And what easier assumed target than a black single mom. Too bad they fucked with the wrong one.

I have never heard of a Caucasian family being arrested and their children snatched away from them as this black model who decided she did not want her children educated through the so-called normal system of inadequate teaching majority of the time. She felt her children weren’t being educated as far as how she wanted them to be and she was punished for thinking outside the box since when is it a crime to want your children to have a better education of course she decided that she didn’t want to no longer be bothered with the Boston school system how dare she is what the public school thought CPS and the court system so they tried to come up with a lie that she didn’t have full custody of her children all the years that I’ve heard Caucasian families homeschooling their children I have never heard of one arrest or CPS being involved in their lives disrupting their lives not once this is an atrocity and it is doing nothing but getting worse the more we Buck the system the more they come up with more lies and rules for us thank God for Thurgood Marshall. Come to think of it where is the NAACP why aren’t we hearing their voice about these things that are going on

Unfortunately, this crosses many ethnic lines in America due to vaccination and home schooling! I feel for her that her babies were taken and placed under the penal system like animals.

“I have never heard of a Caucasian family being arrested and their children snatched away”. That comment is ridiculous and ignorant. It happens to famiies of every color every day!

Well open your eyes & ears. The government KILLED white kids when parents refused to give them up in Waco, burnt them alive. They took 118 kids at one time from another group of white parents due to one anonymous phone call in another incident. You think godless tyranny sees color? Wake up! A tyrannical govt has nothing to do with racial bias. But it will use racists as idiot tools to further their agenda of dividing & disunifying the people to control us with hate against our fellow man. Quit buying into it! Love your neighbor.
