SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A California appeals court says parents
without teaching credentials may home school their children.
The state appeals court on Friday reversed its early ruling barring noncredentialed home schools after dozens of teaching organizations defended the growing practice.
The governor, attorney general and state school officials submitted legal arguments supporting the current home schooling system. Supporters say some 166,000 students are home schooled in the state.
The court called on the state Legislature to clarify the law.
