Here is a link that talks about a recent decision from the state of California's courts which states that children cannot be home-schooled unless their parent is a credentialed teacher. This affects many, many families, and came out of nowhere. Please read the information at this link to find out more. This essentially takes away the right of the parent to choose how their child is educated. The case this was based upon does not accurately reflect a majority of families who choose to home-school.
