World Congress of Families Outraged by California Home-Schooling Decision

by Staff
March 20, 2008

MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- World Congress of Families founder, Allan Carlson, expressed shock and consternation at a recent California court decision in effect banning home-schooling.

Carlson called the ruling by California Appeals Court Judge H. Walt Croskey "blatantly anti-family." Croskey held that parents who home-school their children without a teacher's certificate could be criminally prosecuted.

"It's an attempt to cut-off escape routes to families fleeing the public education system," Carlson said. "This had nothing to do with the quality of home- schooling. Home-school graduates tend to score higher on aptitude tests than products of public education. Students schooled at home frequently attend the best Ivy League colleges and universities."

"Judge Croskey doesn't want children to miss out on all of the wonderful indoctrination that has become an integral part of public education, like National Day of Silence, where students are compelled to affirm the homosexual lifestyle," Carlson insisted.

Even California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who's generally liberal on social issues, was appalled by the decision, promising: "This outrageous ruling must be overturned and if the courts don't protect parents' rights then, as elected officials, we will."

Carlson said the ruling "shows just how far some judges will go to strip parents on any rights over their children's education."

In 2005, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, held that schools could provide students with any sexual information or instruction they chose, and parents had no right to object.

"Now, another California court is trying to take more rights from families," Carlson declared. "This horrendous decision must be reversed."

For more information on families and home- schooling, go online to www.profam.org/docs/acc/thc_acc_hhssf.htm to read the Allan Carlson article, "How Home-Schooling Strengthens Families."
