Selected Legal Cases on State Control Over Private Home Education.
Klimes, Rudolf E.
This paper examines five selected court cases concerning state control over private home education. According to the author, the cases were selected on the basis of their relevancy to the subject, but no attempt was made to ascertain their representativeness. The cases discussed include State v. Peterman, Wright v. State, People v. Turner, and Meyerkorth v. State. In addition, the appendix analyzes the case of Wisconsin v. Yoder. From studying these cases, the author concludes that private home schools may operate where state regulations permit, if they employ a qualified teacher and use an educational program and schedule that conforms with acceptable educational practice.
