California has declared homeschooling illegal, unless the primary teacher is state certified. No more plain old mommies and daddies teaching their own kids. Check out the article from Fox News. Some people are worried b/c CA tends to be a trend-setter for such laws. They don't have a teaching certificate and vehemently oppose their children being thrown into a traditional school setting. I just find it odd - what does the state have to gain by doing this? Most of you know my own personal feelings about homeschooling. I don't think it's for me (and I have a teaching certificate!). In general, however, I am not against it, assuming it's done right. That's a big long discussion for another time. Either way, this 'law' makes me squirm. How does it make you feel? Your thoughts?
