Home Schooling Under Fire

It is not enough that government schools teach such ideas as evolution and “cultural sensitivity” while making Christian students feel like second class citizens.  Now, courts in California are making it more difficult for parents to home school their children as well.


California’s 2nd District Court of Appeals recently ruled that parents can no longer home school children unless they have teaching credentials.  Doing so could now lead to a criminal complaint.  While requirements for teaching credentials vary within the state they often include earning a bachelor’s degree and passing teaching exams.


“Parents do not have a constitutional right to home school their children” wrote Justice H. Walter Croskey.  It seems in California , you cannot raise your children as you see fit unless the Constitution gives you the right or the state gives you permission.

This could probably be successfully challenged by bringing it to the Supreme Court of the United States.
