"On Feb. 28, Judge H. Walter Croskey of the Second District Court of Appeals in Los Angeles ruled that children ages six to 18 may be taught only by credentialed teachers in public or private schools — or at home by mom and dad but only if they have a teaching degree. Citing state law that goes back to the early 1950s, Croskey declared that 'California courts have held that under provisions in the Education Code, parents do not have a constitutional right to home school their children.' Furthermore, the judge wrote, if instructors teach without credentials they will be subject to criminal action." http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1720697,00.html For the time being, there are no plans to enforce this ruling, pending appeal. And "the Governator" says he'll submit legislation to overturn it. But still, wow, talk about interfering with parental rights.
