Another Parental Right Taken Away...

Homeschoolers' setback sends shock waves through state:
"The ruling was applauded by a director for the state's largest teachers union.
'We're happy,' said Lloyd Porter, who is on the California Teachers Association board of directors. 'We always think students should be taught by credentialed teachers, no matter what the setting.'"
Of course the teacher's union is pleased .... they have the corner on the education business, now there is one less opportunity for some one to tell them they are doing a lousy job!
I would agree that there are some home schoolers who are being very inadequately taught, but there are many more who are getting a better education than they would otherwise.

In our state, as long as the parent has a high school diploma .... but your child also has to participate and PASS the state exams .... the same ones they take at the schools. The schools are required to contact the registered homeschoolers to let them know of test dates/places, the parents I believe pay for the cost of the testing of their child.
Its been a while since I've looked into formal 'home-schooling' .... but I do practice it during the summers with the kids so they continue on.
I believe you should never let yourself stop learning .... even if its something small.
