ACR 115: Supports Rights of Parents

Note:
This legislative information represents a joint effort by Roy Hanson’s Child and Family Protection Association and Home School Legal Defense Association.

Author:
Assembly Member Joel Anderson

Summary:
ACR 115 supports the right of parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children. It expresses the Legislature’s position that the Appellate Court’s interpretation of the laws, under which parents teach their children at home, was misguided. And, it would call on the California Supreme Court to reverse the Appellate Court’s opinion. ACR 115 will not change any existing laws and it will not create any new law.

We are very grateful for being able to work with Assembly Member Joel Anderson as the author of ACR 115. We are also very thankful for the following legislators who have signed on as coauthors of ACR 115 as of April 7, 2008: Assembly Members: Adams, Aghazarian, Beall, Benoit, Berryhill, Blakeslee, Cook, DeVore, Duvall, Emmerson, Fuller, Gaines, Garcia, Garrick, Horton, Houston, Huff, Jeffries, Keene, La Malfa, Lieu, Maze, Nakanishi, Niello, Parra, Plescia, S.
