A blow to all parents
Last week the California courts ruled that it is illegal to home school your child in their state. This is not just a home school issue. According to Dr. Albert Mohler(President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)'This is a controversy that demands the attention of all parents. After all, if parents have no constitutional right to educate their own children, what other aspects of the parent's choices for their own children lack protection? This question reaches far beyond educational decisions.'
James Dobson addressed this issue on his Friday broadcast. Dr. Dobson felt so strongly about this issue that he changed his regularly scheduled broadcast to address this issue.
This is not only a home school issue. This should be a concern to all parents just as Dr. Mohler stated. If this ruling is upheld, what might come at us later? I urge you to sign the petition with The Home school Legal Defense Assoc. You don't have to join the HSLDA or be a homeschooler, just a concerned citizen who is alarmed with this ruling.
