The Great and Powerful Oz - 0 ..... Homeschooling - 1

For those of you who might have heard something about a recent court case in California regarding the legality of homeschooling in California, here is the site that gives the true and up to the minute information.

In a nutshell, here is what was ruled on August 8, 2008:
"Today's court ruling held that (1) California statutes permit home schooling as a species of private school education; and (2) the statutory permission to home school may constitutionally be overridden in order to protect the safety of a child who has been declared a dependent. Homeschooling, therefore, remains a legal educational option in California. "

This is a big win for the white hats. I don't know about you, but the question that looms large to me is "Why is the 'Great and Powerful Oz' fighting so hard to make homeschooling illegal?"

Oh wait, of course! They (educrats, Big Pharma and those who are supported by them), don't want a bunch of independent thinkers around. If they did actually want intelligent free-thinkers, TeenScreen would not exist. See my post: Is your child a target in today’s education system?
