A Cause For Celebration!!!


Homeschooling in California is now legal again! In a unanimous decision, the California Court of Appeal for the Second Appellate District ruled today that "California statues permit home schooling as a species of private school education", which overturned the February ruling that deemed homeschool illegal and unconstitutional in California.

No more worrying about Mr. Truant Officer coming to the door.

I'd like to thank my Governator, the Home School Legal Defense Association, California Homeschool Network, everyone who signed the petition to get the previous court ruling overturned, my mom for giving birth to me, my husband for letting me paint the house purple, Charles Alderton for inventing Dr. Pepper, and Joss Whedon for, well, everything.

Today is a great day indeed!

I'll leave you with some more celebratory pictures...

  4. whoohoo! we've been praying and making phone calls to the governor's office from Saskatchewan. (my friend called 2 dozen times in one day to 'vote' on the issue) I wanted to press the 'if you would like a visit from the governor button, but figured he wouldn't make it up to Saskatchewan any time soon. :) GLAD to hear the good news. a fellow homeschooling, adopting mom. darci
