Calif. Homeschoolers to Battle for Rights in Appeals Court
A coalition of legal and homeschooling advocate organizations are scrambling to argue for the rights of families in California to homeschool their children.

In an amicus brief, The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), Western Center for Law & Policy, American Civil Rights Union, Christian Leaders, and Jewish Homeschoolers of Napa and Sonoma Counties have petitioned to have the Calif. Court of Appeals rehear a ruling that left thousands of homeschooling families in protest.

The pro-homeschooling coalition argues that the court ruling is unconstitutional, claiming that parents are protected in their right to educate their own children with their own values under the First Amendment Free Speech and Free Exercise Clauses. The appeals court has agreed to rehear the case. ...

I would agree with Vigilante, however these Judges have committed a criminal act , and can be prosecuted for it.They have power to do what has been done because People buy into the Idea that the courts are the FINAL decision makers , when in fact they are NOT.All parents of Homeschooled children should file a "Criminal Complaint" against these Judges and then have them removed for "Bad Conduct" as the Constitution calls for. Why bother arguing the points of so called new law. They don't have the power to MAKE law, and NO-one gets this. Prosecute a few Judges in the way mentioned and they will all go back to Interpreting instead of creating law.

I don't know how bad it is in Georga, but here in California
our judges are almost like kings, having recently "ruled"
against majority opinion on issues like home-schooling and
homosexual "marriage". Even our popular initiative/referendum
process is not safe from being underminded by just one or more
activist judges who happen to disagree with the popular vote.

Our biggest problem is that so many people don't vote "the
long view" and instead vote for what feels good and sounds
good "now", and those voted for eventually appoint activist
judges which in turn threaten our rights and freedoms.

e.g. my liberal-democrat shooting buddy who complains about
our diminishing gun-rights but continues to vote for the same
left-leaning candidates who most threaten such rights but are
somehow more virtuous in his eyes.

e.g. my brother and his wife are completely secular and liberal-
democrat in their voting, but even they homeschool their kids
in an effort to avoid the low quality of their local public

No doubt this recent ruling against homeschooling rights
figured-into their recent decision to move to a neighborhood
with a much better school district. An incredible hassle,
which could've been avoided by "smarter" voting on their part.

The right not to indoctrinate children with the religion(s) of Statism/Romanism comes from God alone. It really is that simple. What parents do with God's heritage, homeschool/unschool/life-worldschool - whatever, and "the right" to do it, actually diverts from the main issue. The matter regards "not teaching children another religion." Period.

This issue may be one worth moving to another state over. I may never home school any future children that I have, but that option, that right, should always be available to parents. I find it disturbing when the state mandates that children attend their schools, while the parents seem to have no rights at all: espescially in the peoples republic of California where hardcore tree huggers and the homo agenda will be incorporated with the student learning. Christian/Private schools are still available I would assume, but as always, not everyone can afford to go there.
