While most of the education debate in the state Capitol this year has been on how to improve teachers and enhance schools, some Iowa lawmakers are focused on a very different educational goal - seeking to reduce regulations for homeschooling families.

Language added to an education bill passed in the Republican-controlled state House in February would remove oversight for some households that homeschool their children. The proposals could complicate negotiations as House Republicans try to reach a compromise with the Democratic-controlled Senate on overall school funding and an education overhaul plan from Gov. Terry Branstad.

A Coleman man received the maximum sentence of 20 years in prison Thursday for recklessly causing serious bodily injury that led to the death of a 14-month-old foster child in his care three years ago.

The defense argued that the extensive bruising and head trauma could have been caused by CPR or the choking incident itself, and by common, everyday toddler falls. Coleman County District Attorney Heath Hemphill said Yarbrough will not be eligible for parole until actual time is served, and that any good conduct time equals one fourth of the sentence.

When Elizabeth Garcia met Barney the purple dinosaur during her Make-A-Wish Foundation trip in January, the little girl, then 7, was all smiles and hugs.

Her disposition was markedly different Tuesday, when she saw her parents for the second time since she was taken into Child Protective Services custody in late April. "She didn't look happy at all," her mother, Debbie Garcia, said. "She looked so sad and pale."

Our data demonstrates that school going children are more likely to suffer child abuse and neglect than electively home educated children, which directly contradicts Mr Badman's alleged findings.

Local home educators in Dagenham reacted angrily to the news that the DCSF has granted Graham Badman extra time to gather 'evidence' for the Select Committee Inquiry into his report on Elective Home Education in England, in which he controversially claimed that home educated children are at greater risk of abuse than schooled children.

A New Mexico judge who has been accused of raping a prostitute has decided to resign from the bench.

Here's a quick update on the unfortunate tale of Albert "Pat" Murdoch, the New Mexico state court judge who has been accused of raping a prostitute. He will be retiring from the bench, as of Friday, and he has agreed never to seek another judicial office in the state. (Maybe he should run for elective office? It worked out for Alcee Hastings, who successfully ran for Congress after getting impeached from his federal judgeship.)

Reportings of suspected child abuse and neglect have ticked up nearly 20 percent in the wake of last month's brutal killing of 10-year-old Victoria Martens and a campaign by the state.

If the calls about abuse or neglect involve a parent, guardian or someone in the household, it is screened in for investigation by CYFD; if the call involves someone outside the household, such as a coach, teacher or neighbor, then CYFD cross-reports the call to local law enforcement for investigation, Jacobson said.

House-approved bills calling for longer mandatory prison sentences for repeat DWI offenders and expanded child abuse penalties stalled today in a Senate committee.

While the bills could be brought back up for debate in the coming days, today's tie votes in the Senate Public Affairs Committee decreases their odds of final passage. That's because the bills would have to clear the committee, and other assigned committees, and then gain approval on the Senate floor before lawmakers adjourn on Thursday.

MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Tuesday said it is ready to investigate the controversial incident involving Willie Revillame's "Willing Willie" and a 6-year-old boy who danced like a stripper on the show last March 12.

DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima told reporters that the department is "just waiting for any appropriate complaint affidavit from any group or persons" before it can act on the matter. The secretary declined to further comment on the issue to avoid any perception of pre-judgment if ever a case is filed at the DOJ.
