Controversy Rages Over Homeschooling in Bakersfield, CA

The homeschool community is outraged by statements made by Kern County School District Assistant Superintendent, Bud Burrow. Mr. Burrow, when asked how many children in the county were homeschooled replied, "We wouldn't have a clue, because homeschooling is outside the legal and proper way of doing things. California is a compulsory attendance state, and it's illegal. It's either home or school it's not meant to be both." The article goes on to state that the legal way to homeschool is through a public school independent study program, a charter school or via tutoring by a certified teacher.
