Click here for today’s feature:

According to the National Center for Education, there are more than 2 million children educated at home in the US today. While homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, there are ongoing legal and legislative battles; like the well known case which occurred last year in California when the Second Appellate District Court of Appeals in Los Angeles effectively banned homeschooling in that state by requiring teaching certificates for any parents involved in the home education of their children.

The California decision was later reversed, but there are still dozens of other regulatory challenges facing the home school community in the US. This conversation with Home School Legal Defense Association President Michael Smith looks at some of these cases as well provides some advice for new homeschooling famlies.
