By now I'm sure you've heard of the recent CA court decision against homeschooling. I won't spend much time commenting, other than to say I do not believe in any government intervention in homeschooling and I believe parents are just as qualified to teach their children as "credentialed" teachers. More on that here:

There are some who say this case is about abuse, not homeschooling. If such is true, why not charge the parents with a crime, prove their guilt (the burden of proof IS on the State) and put them in jail? Apparently there are some officials in our "Justice" system who need a refresher course on due process.
Thankfully, Governor Schwarzenegger is familiar with the concept of parental rights.
Here's a hilarious spoof article about the court decision.
