Hold on to your hats. Common sense and constitutionalism have prevailed in the California judiciary. Last week, the Second District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles declared that parents who homeschool don’t need teaching credentials in order to educate their own children.
Amazingly, the three judges were overturning their own February decision. We quote from their recent revelation: “It is important to recognize that it is not for us to consider, as a matter of policy, whether homeschooling should be permitted in California. That job is for the Legislature. It is not the duty of the courts to make the law; we endeavor to interpret it.”
What prompted this fit of judicial restraint?
