California Court to Reconsider Home-Schooling Ruling

By Mark Walsh — March 27, 2008 1 min read

A state appellate court in California says it will reconsider its controversial ruling that parents have no state constitutional right to home school their children, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Education Week reported on the Feb. 28 decision by the 2nd District California Court of Appeal here, and I blogged about it here. The court said state law requires children to be taught by credentialed teachers, a decision that had the home-schooling community up in arms.

The Chronicle story says that while it is not unusual for appellate courts in the state to reconsider rulings and then make only minor, technical changes, the 2nd District panel indicated it would undertake a broader review of its decision. The panel invited written arguments from state and local education officials and from teachers’ unions and will hold a new hearing in the case in June, the paper says.
