Victory in Home Schooling Rights

Looks like California has come to it's senses regarding parental rights in homeschooling. The LA Times reports:

Governator Schwarzenegger:
This is a victory for California's students, parents and education community. This decision confirms the right every California child has to a quality education and the right parents have to decide what is best for their children. I hope the ruling settles this matter for parents and home-schooled children once and for all in California, but assure them that we, as elected officials, will continue to defend parents' rights.

Phillip Long:
Educating your children in your own home preexisted these buffoons that sit on the 2nd Circuit. It preexisted this state. It preexisted us. Parents have been teaching their own children since the beginning.

I hope that with all the news about homeschooling that more parents in California will give it a try.

Thanks for your comment. I'm in the interesting situation of advocating homeschooling, while not homeschooling myself. Seems rather hypocritical, but what I am actually in favor of is each child receiving the appropriate education for them, and public/charter/private schooling has worked best for our children and our family.

You didn't post a link to your blog, but I certainly will, as it is very excellent.
