Saw this on another board. It looks like Gov Schwarzenegger is siding with homeschoolers:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger~ Gets Involved

SACRAMENTO, March 7 (UPI) -- California's governor wants to see a court ruling tightening the rules for home schooling overturned.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a statement Friday calling this week's ruling requiring home-school instructors to hold valid teaching credentials "outrageous" and called for it to either be overturned in the court system or changed through the legislative process.

"Every California child deserves a quality education and parents should have the right to decide what's best for their children," Schwarzenegger said. "Parents should not be penalized for acting in the best interests of their children's education."

California's 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that home-schooling was not a guaranteed constitutional right and that the state had the right to regulate it by requiring credentialed teachers. The state currently requires all school-aged kids to be educated in school or at home by a qualified tutor.

University of San Diego Law Professor Shaun Martin told The San Diego Union-Tribune that the ruling means "parents no longer have the right to home-school their kid any way they want."

someone told me that the MHLA ( the Massachusetts homeschool league)thought that the petitions were over-reacting, personally I don't agree, but I was wondering where this argument is coming from, they are urging members in MA to not sign any petitions yet. This is really bugging me! Shocked

Maybe they're afraid that after the petition gets like a million signatures, we'll scare the Supreme Court into stomping us like a bug?

Can't figure out why they'd be against it otherwise...

Hi Momof 3,


Maybe the MA group is on the other side of the fence,so to speak, from HSLDA and they don't support anything they suggest.
I tried to find the source of that report you got second-hand, but couldn't find anything.
I am glad others tell the whole story. There are plenty of reliable sources to tell us what is going on with this case in CA.
Thanks for making us aware of it here, though.

The petition has averaged about 20,000 signatures per day so far...
