Education where the classroom is the home and the teachers are parents had been one of the major forms of education until the early 1900s. Today, home schools educate nearly one million children, and since 1982, 34 states have enacted laws specifically to protect the constitutional rights of these institutions.
Written by the Senior Counsel of the Home School Legal Defense Association, this book is useful to parents who are interested in home schooling but are unaware of their rights and unsure where to turn for help. Klicka guides parents and the attorneys who represent them through the legislative and judicial histories of home schooling and provides a clear picture of the impediments often faced by individuals who wish to home school.
In addition to discussing the rights and legal recourses available to parents, this text also summarizes the statutory trend to deregulate home schooling. In this informative and thorough guide to home schooling, Klicka encourages families to overcome the impediments often faced by individuals who wish to home school and to continue this highly successful tradition in education.
