Rachel's Educator

In yesterday's post I confessed I had not yet read the California case (In re Rachel L.) which recognized that homeschooling was not protected in California by statute or by the Constitution. I have now read the court's opinion and commented briefly on it here.

The court is generally correct: California has prohibited "home schooling" for decades. The California Constitution recognizes that children belong to the State, and therefore the State determines how they are to be educated. The U.S. Constitution -- as interpreted by the Supreme Court of the U.S. -- agrees.
