    The parents of some 200,000 home-schooled kids in California were stunned last week when they learned that a judge had declared home schooling illegal unless conducted by a licensed teacher.

    The homeschooling movement never saw the case coming.

    The Liberal drive to indoctrinate all kids meets a slight hurdle, a little good news for once.
