California homeschool ruling vacated

The California appeals court that outlawed homeschooling has decided to vacate the ruling. That doesn’t mean overturning it. Rather it means the court will reconsider the case. See here for details.

    I imagine those poor justices never knew what hit them! Here they were, laboring along on a juvenile case, issue a ruling which they thought merely settled the issue as to one family caught in the system, and get slammed by a million plus homeschooling activists (the HSLDA petition drive netted over a quarter million signatures). They couldn’t vacate that ruling fast enough!

    I predict, after the re-hearing, a much more nuanced ruling which decides only issues related to that one family and does not pronounce any sweeping education law interpretations.

    I’m always in favor of California appeals courts taking vacations.

    I think that’s legal talk for “Oops, uh..That escalated fast. Kind of got out of hand…um…Can we re-do that?”
