Many children and parents complain about children being detained and interrogated at their schools by child protection workers. Many children report being embarrassed and often the target of bullying or teasing by other students after child protection workers come to interrogate them at their schools. Children report that they are labelled by other students and teachers as abused kids with bad parents. There is no need for child protection workers to interrogate a child at his or her school unless the child has provided his or her prior informed consent. Gathering of information from children when it is necessary can be gathered through interviews with the child in locations other than the the child’s school.
To help parents deal with the issue of child protection agency workers going into their child’s school, parents need only to get their child and/or themselves to fill out the Cease and Desist forms which are found at the link below and to submit it to their local Board of Education and the Principal of the school were the children attend. Optionally, a form can be sent to the child protection agency. Parents do not have to be affected by a child protection agency or have open cases to submit a form to the agency.. Submission of this form will protect a child as long as the child remains in school with the school board named on the form. Teachers and Principals who ignore the request made of them in this form open themselves to a lawsuit by students and/or their parents.
Instructions and copies of the forms for both children and parents have been included along with instruction and a copy of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
