Homeschoolers' setback sends shock waves through state Lots of people here talk about erosion of freedoms. But to me, their arguments are always irrelevant. Can we wire-tap inbound calls? Can we torture suspected terrorist? No offense, but getting calls from Sudan or the possibility that some lackey caught on the battlefield may be water-boarded doesn't seem like much of an erosion to me. This ruling by the California appeals court however, will erode your freedoms if you live in CA and may eventually effect the rest of the nation. The court decided that according to CA law, you are not allowed to homeschool your children unless you have a degree and certificate from the State. This truly will make the Founding Fathers spin a few times in the grave. From now on, the State decides how your kids will be schooled. Beyond the politics of it, I wonder what the opinion is of those that accuse the government of stripping rights away is. If wire-tapping is such an injustice to freedoms, isn't this 100 times worse?
