.- A February 28 court decision outlawing homeschooling in California will be reconsidered by the California Court of Appeal.

Last month the same court considered the case of a child enrolled in a private homeschooling program, ruling that parents who educate their children at home could be criminally liable under state law.

Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) had asked the court to reconsider the decision. 

“Parents have a fundamental right to make educational choices for their children,” ADF Senior Council Gary McCaleb said.  “Because this ruling impacts all Californians, we believe the case deserves a second look. We look forward to presenting this case for rehearing.”

Attorney Gary Kreep, of the United States Justice Foundation, said, “Another look at this case will help ensure that the fundamental rights of parents are fully protected.”
