Overview

"Written by the Senior Counsel of the Home School Legal Defense Association, this book is useful both to interested parents, who are often unaware of the extent of their rights and unsure where to turn for help, and to attorneys who represent them. It discusses the legislative and judicial histories of home schooling and it provides a clear picture of the impediments often placed in the way of those who wish to home school by local school officials. In addition to discussing the rights and legal recourses available to those parents, The Right to Home School also summarizes the statutory trend to deregulate home schooling, thereby encouraging families to continue this highly successful form of education." This edition includes information on the battle to pass parental rights and religious freedom acts and provides model language. The latest data on home schoolers in college is also discussed.
