Homeschooling Families Threatened by Court Ruling
Tens of thousands of parents could be subject to criminal sanctions after a California appeals court ruled parents do not have a constitutional right to homeschool their children.

"Are you kidding me?" said Kevin McCullough, conservative radio talk show host, on Thursday.

The court ruled last week that minor children must attend a public school unless the child attends a private school or is taught by a teacher with a valid state teaching license. And religious convictions of families do not guarantee a right to homeschool their children.

Parents must have teaching credentials to educate their kids at home. ...

To clarify my last comment. The truth has been expounded upon and to the People of California, and yet they seem intent on debating the issue of Government control over their lives in areas that ONLY God the Father should rule.I have before and will again say that these Judges have committed a CRIME in overstepping their judicial bounds and violating established Law.These are the Marxist regime thinkers , and they can and should be prosecuted for their crimes with "Criminal Complaints" filed against them, which is LAWFUL and legal. If you broke the law in such a serious way , you indeed would go to Prison for at least TEN years. Does not the Law apply to those who apply and interpret the Law. Therefore they Must BE Doers of the law and not just "speakers" of the law and be held Accountable!! Were one to Tell the vast majority of Christians this , they will debate with you , or???Truth is NOT relative!!!!!

Truth must be spoken however it be taken...?? Is that so? Why then when the truth is elevated to the minds of the people, it vanishes from ANY forum?The truth is not welcome anywhere in secular or christian circles of public attention or perusal.

That's fatalism, not predestination. Just because a parent can't change a child's heart doesn't mean he has no duty to bring him up in the nurture & admonition of the Lord. God uses secondary means to accomplish His foreordained purposes.
Both you and Kenny have taken my comment out of context. I did not say
that parents do not have a responsibility and neither of you know
or understand the circumstances involved with the children mentioned
in my comment.

It is only when home-schooling becomes
some sort of cult that it becomes a
threat to the children.

Thank you...

My English compposition teacher in my freshman year of college
often condemned institutionalized education, calling it "assembly-
line" education, because it tended to produce cookie-cutter kids
with similar imaginations, expectations, and dreams...which trends
he could see from their writings. One wonders if he had more home-
schooled kids in his classes that he'd have gotten more originality
and creativity from their assignments, given the many backgrounds
from which they come.

I strongly suspect they will prosper.

I have known hundreds (thousands?) of homeschooled kids through the years. None of them are as isolated as you describe. Some are more social than others but all of them interact with lots of people. Most are exposed to a variety of people and age groups every day of their lives because they are not stifled in a classroom full of the same people day after day, year after year. They are out and about with their families and friends learning how to live life and do things.

If I understand DSY correctly, these kids would be better off warehoused all day in a room full of others their same age with similar backgrounds, drugged into submission with Ritalin and indoctrinated in Godless humanism. After they make it past the metal detector at the front door they can be taught that they evolved from apes and that sodomy is normal, acceptable behavior. Premarital sex is inevitable, kid, so here's some condoms. NO THANKS.

If what I've seen come out of the government schools is the norm, I want no part of their brand of socialization.

There is pros and cons regarding the
practice of home schooling. I know
a family that practices this and yet
the children have NO interaction with
other children and little with adults.

When they are pushed into this wicked
world, what will happen to them??
Just a thought and a real concern for
these young people and their parents.

It would be good if we as parents could
protect our children forever; however,
we cannot and they must learn to make
their own decisions at some point...
We cannot keep them in a bubble.

Thank God for Sovereign Grace which is
all we really have... We cannot make
those that do not belong to God belong
to him... Some folks seem to believe
they are greater than God and can change what God has already predestined.

We need to pray over this, A lot. GOD knows what Hes doing. Sometimes I wish we did, but I don't think we could handle it.

The apparently rather secular home schooling group of California don't seem overly worked up about it, q.v., The HomeSchool Association of California:. I am sure that California has a religious group, like Nebraska, who are Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home.

Yeah. This was all over our local news last night.

Trying to enforce this is going to further strain
California's already strained resources--especially
when one considers the colossal number of kids that
are now home-schooled.

I know were supposed to pray for our government but
it's getting harder to do so as they become increasingly
contemptible.
