California Home Schooling Statute Holds in Court
However, instead of encouraging uncertified parents to disregard the court's ruling, perhaps Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who opposes the ruling, should change the statute upon which this ruling was based. The court also cites a previous California decision holding that, while it would be unconstitutional to require children to attend public school, requiring home school parents to have teaching credentials is not.
Nonetheless, home schoolers want the ruling reversed because of its possible precedential value. The best thing these parents can do is to respect the rule of law and urge their legislators to change it.
