Legislative Watch

HSC's legislative team keeps an eye on proposed legislation and court cases that could potentially impact homeschoolers.


Alerts and Advisories

There are currently no bills pending which would threaten the right to homeschool legally in California.

Bills We've Been Watching

On August 8, 2008, the California Court of Appeal for the Second Appellate District ruled that homeschooling is indeed a legal option in California. This was a reversal of a ruling in February of that year that parents must hold a teaching credential to homeschool their children, and confirmed HSC’s long-held interpretation of private school laws.

Open thank you letter to attorney Mark Parnes and the law firm (Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati) for successfully defending our right to homeschool.
