‘Not one educationally-neglected child has been helped by my going to prison’ – Jailed home school mum

A MOTHER jailed in a dispute over homeschooling has said she wanted to show her children how to stand up for themselves. Monica O’Connor was speaking after being released from jail over non-payment of a fine. The couple had been brought to court after they refused to be assessed by the National Education Welfare Board.
