Eduction is not Included in Freedom

Homeschoolers' setback sends shock waves through state:
"'California courts have held that ... parents do not have a constitutional right to homeschool their children,' Justice H. Walter Croskey said in the 3-0 ruling issued on Feb. 28. 'Parents have a legal duty to see to their children's schooling under the provisions of these laws.'

Parents can be criminally prosecuted for failing to comply, Croskey said.

'A primary purpose of the educational system is to train school children in good citizenship, patriotism and loyalty to the state and the nation as a means of protecting the public welfare,' the judge wrote, quoting from a 1961 case on a similar issue."
Wow. How is this keeping with the finest traditions of this country? How is this anything other than tyranny?
