Follow up interview with Debbie Schwarzer- CA

In February 2008, The California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Three issued a ruling concerning the In re Rachel L. case and stated that California homeschool parents needed to be a credentialed teacher to legally homeschool their children. The court later vacated that ruling on March 25th and agreed to a rehearing that took place in June. This week CA homeschoolers were elated with the latest court ruling from the court that recognizes homeschooling as a species of private schools.

Since February, Debbie Schwarzer, CA homeschool Mom and legal co-chair of HSC has been involved in this situation every step of the way. She has spoken to me a few times about the situation and it was my pleasure to catch up with her again so we could hear her perspective on the latest court ruling.
