Here we go…
So, if a parent in California wants to home school, they must get a teaching certificate. I hope this gets overruled soon or else this could set a dangerous precedent.
According to Bob Unruh in an article on the California ruling, it’s a familar name [emphasis is mine]:
The appeals court words held echoes of similar ideas expressed by officials from Germany, where homeschooling has been outlawed since 1938 under a law adopted when Adolf Hitler decided he wanted the state, and no one else, to control the minds of the nation’s youth.
A California state appellate court judge has said “Parents do not have a constitutional right to home school their children.”.
We don’t need it, you idiot. We have a natural right to home school our children. We hold this truth to be self-evident. the Constitution, and specifically the Bill of Rights is not anything like an exhaustive list of the rights of individuals, but is meant as a modest hedge against oppressive government encroachment like the nonsense you are trying to pull. You can’t expect the founding fathers to list everything that people have a right to do.
That is the key point is that our rights are inalienable and come from God, not from the government.
