Home-Schooling: A Criminal Offense?

From Gary (sorry, not Jack) Bauer:

A California appeals court recently ruled that parents, "...do not have a constitutional right to home-school their children." The ruling could be devastating to many of America’s 1.5 - 2 million home-schooling families.

In my Human Events column today, I discuss why more and more parents are choosing to home-school their children, and why it’s so successful. I also interview Michael Farris, founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association, about the impact of the ruling and the options for Americans who care about the fundamental right to educate their own children.
