Homeschooling Gone Wrong: The Joseph Hall Case
Show Notes

This week, Kelley and Julia dig into the tragic case of Joseph Hall, who killed his father at the age of 10 years old. They discuss how years of sexual and physical abuse, neglect, his father's Nazi activities, and a violent upbringing all lead to the murder. Joseph suffered from learning disabilities and behavioral problems that got him kicked out of numerous schools, which resulted in his father deciding to teach him at home despite the fact that he himself had never finished 11 grade. In addition, social services were called on Joseph's parents 23 times and no action was ever taken to remove him from a dangerous and abusive home environment. The sisters discuss what there is to be learned from this case and shed light on the ever present danger children face when no one, even the law, will protect them.
