The Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal group, is challenging a New Hampshire court's decision to remove a girl out of homeschooling.
The ADF has asked the court to reconsider its decision to force the ten-year-old to attend public school.
The court's ruling acknowledges that the girl's mother who homeschools her has more than kept up with the public school curriculum.
But the court also cited the father's concerns about the child's strong religious beliefs and says public school would provide exposure to other points of view.
In addition to the homeschooling, the girl attends supplemental public school classes and has been involved in extra-curricular activities.
"The New Hampshire Supreme Court itself has specifically declared, 'Home education is an enduring American tradition and right,'" said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Mike Johnson. "There is clearly and without question no legitimate legal basis for the court's decision, and we trust it will reconsider its conclusions."
