In an update on the California court ruling against homeschooling:
Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families, said the ruling was disturbing.
“The ruling is so alarming because the state appeals court judges actually wrote that ‘parents do not have a constitutional right to homeschool their children.’ The judges said that parents without teaching credentials cannot teach. This ruling is a radical slam against homeschooling,” his organization said.
However, many organizations are working to overturn the effect of this ruling. There is clear ruling on the federal level that parents do have the right to direct their childrens’ education. The governor and the legislature are both taking action to ensure parents’ rights to homeschool should this court ruling stand, which seems to be an unlikely event.
