by Moody Adams “On Feb. 28, the 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled that parents must have a teaching credential to home school their children,” reports the Los Angeles Times.”
This reversed a decision by Superior Court Judge Stephen Marpet, who said "parents have a constitutional right to school their children in their own home."
The ruling came from a case involving the family of Phillip and Mary Long, who home schooled their children because public schools were approving homosexual life styles.
America's courts have found some unstated right to privacy in the Constitution which allows parents to kill their children curing their birth, but does not give them the right to teach their children?
Ironically, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, today, blasted the court ruling that endangered homeschooling, when it is the Governor’s Senate Bill 777 which is at the heart of the home schooling issue. He said, "Every California child deserves a quality education and parents should have the right to decide what's best for their children. Parents should not be penalized for acting in the best interests of their children's education."
But the Governor promoted Bill 777 which requires only positive portrayals of homosexual, bisexual, transgender and other alternative lifestyle choices. Schools cannot refer to “mom” and “dad” without inserting the two moms or two dads alternative life style.
"First, the law allowed public schools to voluntarily promote homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality. Then, the law required public schools to accept homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual teachers as role models for impressionable children. Now, the law has been changed to effectively require the positive portrayal of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality to six million children in California government-controlled schools," said Randy Thomasson, chief of the Campaign for Children and Families.
California’s estimated number of homeschooled children is 166,000. Some say it could be as high as a million.
The aggressive, militant homosexual movement is dividing the country. They are determined to get the right to marry and to indoctrinate our children, what ever crisis they create.
