    Well it looks like the fascist state of California has come up with another way to make the "state" stronger. A state appellate court has ruled that parents cannot home school "their" children without having state approved teaching credentials.

    A group of Neanderthal parents are upset about this court ruling. Savages.

    Don’t they know this is for the good of the state. This has been a dream of national socialist since Heinrich Himmler introduced “Lebensborn” to the educated world. Get hold of the children and educate them to the wonders of the state.

    Bisi - There are a lot of children being home schooled by Parents of People that do not have the proper teaching skills. I had a brother in law, and his wife, that home schooled their daughtet. Both have proper credentials. But results were the girl had very excellen scholastic achievements, but had a very hard time for years interacting with others her age. We may not have the best educational system but there are many other factors to consider.

    A well rounded education with proper interaction with their peers is very important to the development of most children. - Jim

    Well, you're not going to get a well rounded education from a government school.

    chiefjon, my crap??? Too bad you're not worry about the "crap" coming from the state of California. I'm just a guy posting a thread on a website, while the state can hold a gun to your head and tell you how and who can educate "your" children, or should I say "their" children??

    This damn socialist country, the whole United States has me really rankled. I am told I may not shoot trap in my urban backyard, although I know how to do so carefully. I'm told I may not own a low yield nuclear device to fight off any terrorist enclaves near my ranch. I also am forced to drive on the right side of the road, pay taxes, follow building codes, and cannot buy drugs that I like such as narcotics, stimulants, and human growth hormones. I am also very angry that I can't drive my Z-06 'Vette in urban neighborhoods fast enough to scare kids and women and skateboarders. I am ticked that I can't sell drugs to the poor and disadvantaged; I mean how does a little cocaine hurt somebody who is dumb to use and buy the chemical? Hell, I like money. It is just no fun around here anymore, and it is the damn socialist/liberal agenda that takes away all freedoms that I feel I have lost. I'm gonna buy my own island and therefore do as I please.

    As BISI said,, they sure ain't getting a well rounded education in [most] public schools now.

    Kids come home now and talk about "two mommies", and bring home literature urging the 10, 11, & 12 year old girls to have some vaccination for sexual diseases.

    The kids are taught to not use the phrase "Arab Terrorist", but rather they are "freedom fighters".

    At Christmas I was watching my two great nieces (8 &10). I was telling them about visiting Montana and Wyoming and of course used the word "Indian", they both automatically pointed out that I was wrong to use that word.


    <i>"We're happy," said Lloyd Porter, who is on the California Teachers Association board of directors. "We always think students should be taught by credentialed teachers, no matter what the setting."</i> I bet the UAW would all for a law forcing people to buy Fords, & GM.

    Uh, actually Bisi has a point. All too many government schools are doing a really poor job educating students. Particularly inner city schools. They've dumbed down the curriculum for students who don't care about getting an education, and they won't toss out the ones who would rather disrupt classes. Then they teach a liberal political agenda instead of the basics. Teachers with poor performance cannot be fired once they get tenure. Then the teachers unions go all out to sabotage private schools, charter schools and home schooling, because it's em-bare-ass-ing for them to be found lacking when comparisons are made, particularly when costs per student are added up.

    Can you show me evidence that a "liberal political agenda" is taught? I think not, at least not in the LAUSD from which I retired. What is taught, IMO, is a very literal interpretation of the Constitution. Schools can only open doors, not bring students through that door, and I bet: Children of those at this forum have done well for the most part due to strong work ethics imparted by their parents. Students who do poorly have parents with poor work ethics, all else being equal. Poor students and ineffectual parents usually don't have enough brains and money to afford to engage in the shotgun sports or entertain one another with differing viewpoints. But please don't blame public education in a knee-jerk fashion; 'taint that simple. I bet kids of those here would do well in public, private, or home schooling due to the home environments setting good examples.

    I must be old fashioned.

    "Heather has 2 Mommies" is certainly not a book about mainstream American Values.

    NOt being from CA, I am not familiar with the school system. But it sure produces a lot of foam and stink rather than substance.

    My .02cents: my gf is a teacher (high school) and she is frustrated beyond belief by excess level of "administration"...more vice principals than ever, parents that could care less about their kids education, teaching down to the lowest/slowest kid and holding back kids who can excel, lousy teaches who cannot be booted because of the teachers union, and YES they do have a LIBERAL slant of which she fights every day.
    sako, if you still believe public schools in Calif. are not taught from a liberal viewpoint, you are full of it or in denial...my teacher shooting friends (yes, and conservative too) are always struggling to voice their point against the tide of liberalism.
    Chiefjon, spoken like a career state gov employee.

    Fact is that home schooled kids are some of the brightest, well educated, and college prepared kids. I spoke about this latest ruling here in Ca. with a judge friend of mine (Federal) and his wife home schools their kids and 2 other...they will continue to teach them (wife does not have credential) as they want whats best for their kids and not what some goofball judge using 1953 law wants to enforce. FOllow the money as the teachers union for years have been trying to shut down home schoolers...frikkiin Cal. public schools rated at the bottom and they are worried about home schooling...it is truly a f up State.

    Guess I should have opened this thread before the other one. We home schooled both our children. And they are fine socially, just like most home schooled kids. Most of the time you find that kids that have social adjustment issues have them no matter where their education comes from.

    More than 20 years ago when first considering home schooling we attended a home school convention and graduation in North Carolina where I was stationed at the time. There were thousands of people in attendance for the graduation ceremony of approximately 20 kids. A PhD was handing out diplomas and when the first girl came up the gentleman said her name and asked if he pronounced it correctly. She said no but that is Ok as he was likely public schooled. The place erupted and he asked if she had anything else to say. She did and thanked her parents and gave a very good short speech. As did the rest of the kids, everyone of them did an outstanding job ad-hoc. We were all standing on our feet clapping by the time it was over.

    The next weekend in church the pastor had the graduating seniors from the local schools come up front and presented them each with a book. He also asked them if they would like to say anything. Every one of the kids mumbled no and stared at the floor. And the contrast in clothing selection was stark. Pretty much made our decision for us then and there.
