Home schooling constitutional in California

A great victory occurred in California which surprised homeschoolers and their supporters. And now, home schoolers in California and their supporters are celebrating a legal decision in which the court handing down the ruling actually reversed itself. According to Onenewsnow, "Earlier today (Friday) the California Court of Appeal ruled that the state's education code allows parents to home school their children. That decision means parents do not have to obtain state credentials in order to home school. The court acknowledged that a state prohibition on home schooling would intrude on parents' constitutional right to direct their children's education, and that that any limit on that right would be presumed unconstitutional. Gary McCaleb, senior counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund, is pleased that the court decided parents have a constitutional right to make educational choices for their children. 'Thousands of California families have educated their children through home schooling,' he states. '[This decision] protects the rights of families and protects an avenue of education that has proven to benefit children time and time again.'"
As has been reported on this blog, in early March a three-judge panel of the California Court of Appeal determined that parents in the Golden State had no legal right to homeschool, a ruling that would have caused parents and even students to be criminal sanctioned if they continued to have been homsechooled.
Mike Farris, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), says today's ruling was unexpected. "We're very thrilled, not just a little bit, [and] we're surprised as well," he remarks. "To get a court to do a 180-degree reversal is a remarkable thing and we view it as a blessing from God. We're really thankful for it, and there's hundreds of thousands of home-school kids in California who are now able to breathe a sigh of relief." Farris says groups like the Alliance Defense Fund, Liberty Counsel, HSLDA, and Focus on the Family teamed up and were armed with new information that compelled the court to uphold parents' constitutional right to educate their children at home.
There is no doubt that this is a tremendous victory for not only the children and their parents in California, but for homeschoolers nationwide. As we see our public schools being destroyed with the propaganda that is being pumped in by the left wingers and homosexuals, our children are no longer being taught the basic Western Christian ideas and values that our country was built upon. They are being taught about my two dads, that our White European culture is something to be ashamed of, and that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a wonderful man instead of the truth of him being a member of over 70 communist organizations, an unfaithful man to his wife, and a black agitator that helped destroy our white culture. We as White Nationalists, and those living in California should be praising our heavenly Father of this victory in California. Those that are interested in homeschooling and a website that not only can help you about homeschooling, but teaches from a white European viewpoint, should go to to read the decision from the California Court of Appeals, which the decision in In re: Rachel L. issued by the California Court of Appeal is available at The court reheard the case on June 23 (
