First off we need to answer an essential question, “how can I legally homeschool?”. Well, there are four legal ways that you as a parent can homeschool your kids in the State of California:
The truth is, is that many Christian parents that enroll their children in charter schools and are told by the administrators that although they cannot purchase Christian curriculum with state funds allotted by the charter school, they can, however, teach Christian curriculum as long as the parents provide that curriculum. In light of the California State Constitution, you can see that no “sectarian or denominational doctrine be taught… directly or indirectly… “. So the question is, “how is it that parents whose children are enrolled in a charter school are able to teach religious curriculum when what you are teaching must be reported to the charter school regularly?” The answer is this; because most charter schools inform parents that when it’s time to turn in samples of their kids’ school work, all they need to do is obtain secular examples of what they are doing, for example, from the internet. You as a parent must know that doing this is illegal. The law is clear. However, parents all over California are being told by many charter schools that it is perfectly allowable to report in this manner falsely.
