California Appelate Court Rehearing
Many of you may recall the ruling in February that grew from an alleged abuse case involving one family to a broad reaching decree stating that CA parents must be “certified” if they to teach their children at home.
The case was rescinded in March and yesterday, June 23, 2008, the California Court of Appeals held their rehearing.
The news is that many homeschoolers and homeschool advocates spoke in favor of overturning the decision and the CA Teachers Union spoke in favor of keeping it. Debbie Schwarzer, homeschool Mom, HSC Legal Co-Chair and Attorney was at the hearing. Look for an interview with her later this week to hear more of what happened at the hearing.
