The California appeals court that recently ruled that homeschooling parents must have teaching credentials, has agreed to take another look at the matter at the request of another couple who have home schooled 8 children.
“Another look at this case will help ensure that the fundamental rights of parents are fully protected,” said attorney Gary Kreep of the U.S. Justice Foundation, the father of the homeschooled children.
Gary shouldn’t get his hopes up, though. The court has pretty effectively telegraphed its intention to leave its ruling intact by:
inviting written arguments from state and local education officials and teachers’ unions.
