Governor Vows to Fight Homeschooling Ban
Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor said "parents should have the right to decide what's best for their children" in response to a court ruling banning homeschooling and called it an "outrageous ruling" which "must be overturned".

Despite Governor Schwarzenegger's offer of new law to support homeschooling advocates, they point out that the current California Education Code does not address homeschooling and they would like to keep it that way.

"We just want to leave it alone because it's good the way it is... The law as it stands is working well in California", said Loren Mavromati

As pointed out by the article in the San Francisco Chronicle, responsibility of raising, educating and protecting children has been part of the parent-child relationship long prior to any governing body. It is outrageous for Judge H. Walter Croskey to state "parents do not have a constitutional right to homeschool their children" (ref). These sort of statements beg the question whether the judge has even read, let alone understands, the United States Constitution -- if in fact he was referencing said doctrine.
