Chuck Hoskin for Clark County Family Court Judge

In light of recent Family Court Judge's decisions in regards to homeschooling, I thought it would be important to evaluate what potential judge's thought on the matter. I started with Chuck Hoskin, as recommended by a friend of our family.

I (anonymously) asked him whether or not he supports parental choice in regards to education. His first clarification - that this issue does not fall in his realm of practice - is a good sign! Here is his full answer:

...As for your question concerning a parent’s right to choose how their
children are educated, let me first state that such issues are not decided, nor
is the existing law interpreted, by a Family Court Judge.

As a result, I can tell you that I believe a parent has the ultimate right in
deciding how their children are educated, whether that be by utilizing public
schools, choosing private schools, or home schooling. I have several
friends who home school their children and I see that their children are at, or
above, the education level of other children their age.

If you know other candidates you would like me to highlight, please let me know via comment!

"Greta Muirhead for Clark County Family Court Judge"

I am running in the Dept. I race. I have been a family law attorney for 18 years, married 16 years and have an 11 year old son.

I have been handling Child Support/Paternity cases for 6 years as an Alternate Hearing Master and am the most frequently requested child support hearing master.

I also hear Guardianship and Domestic Violence Cases.

I bring common sense and control to the courtroom. These are attributes that are presently lacking in Dept. I.

I have several friends who homeschool their children. So long as they have the necessary skill set, I think they should be free to do so.

Please review my website: for more information about me and my opponent, Judge Cheryl Moss' record.

Thank you,

Greta Muirhead
Change is Great!
