An attack has been made against parents. This article about a judge in California ruling 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."

I was not home-schooled nor do I plan on home-schooling any future children I may have. I do however know people that have been home-schooled and others that home-school their children and support the parents choice of what they think is best for their own children. For the record I did graduate from a public high school and attend a public university.

In my opinion this problem can be traced back to the Head Start program, where the government tries to take away children at a younger age. The government thinks it can raise kids better than parents. This liberal thought of big government combined with education is an attack on the family as much as divorce and homosexual marriage. Moreover, in Karl Marx's 'Manifesto of the Communist Party' one of the ten things he listed that must happen is "Free education for all children in public schools". That might be a stretch to say America is turning communist, but if we keep electing and appointing liberal judges who knows.

    We do homeschool even thought the public school system is fine.
    Our oldest is very bright and would be bored in the system of the least common denominator. Would probably be labeled ADHD and given drugs to 'fix' her.

    The conclusion, I am glad I don't live in CA. If I did, the HSLDA would be my best friend. If they failed to be able to fix the ruling, I would move.

    It's just another case of big government putting it's nose where it doesn't belong.

    Besides, half of the teachers in the public school system shouldn't be qualified to teach our children in the first place. It's getting worse every year. Now if a parent wants to take their child's education into their own hands, the government is saying no? Obsurd.
