Child Welfare Case Against Longs Dismissed

A positive development for homeschoolers in California- on Thursday, the family court case against Phillip and Mary Long was dismissed and the court terminated its jurisdiction over the youngest two Long children. Attorneys representing homeschooling organizations now plan to petition the Second Appellate Court to dismiss as moot the case currently under its consideration regarding the broader legality of homeschooling without a state teacher's credential.

Hopefully, this means that the whole thing will now just go away and California's homeschoolers can get back to focusing on what's really important- the education of their children!
