Assembly Bill Aimed at Homeschoolers

On Friday, February 17, 2018, AB 2756 was introduced in the California Assembly by Assembly Members Medina, Eggman and Gonzalez Fletcher.

The authors claim that the bill would protect children enrolled in home-based private schools by ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations. The bill would not accomplish that purpose, and must be seen for what it is: a bald grab for the power of the state to enter private homes.

The HSC Board and legal team believe this bill not only fails completely to achieve the stated goal, it imposes an unacceptable risk not only to the right to educate children at home, but also to the privacy rights of law-abiding citizens. We encourage all of our members to learn about the bill and about these risks, and to contact their own state Assembly members to voice their opposition.


Here is the full text and statement by the Board and Legal Team of the Homeschool Association of California,

  1. Ayla, I can assure you, Mrs. Gonzalez is merely rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic. The public school system is in the process of collapsing; and when it finally does, it’s going to be ugly. Did you ever notice that schools don’t conduct satisfaction surveys? That’s because public school is a screwed-up, demented place. Imagine if the kids were asked to complete this survey once a year:

    All questions are on a scale of 1 – 10 with 10 being the best.

    1. How much do you like school?
    2. How relevant are the classes?
    3. How good are the teachers?
    4. How much are you learning?
    5. How safe is the school?
    6. How cheerful is the school?
    7. How good is the food?
    8. How well do the students get along?
    9. How interesting are the classes?
    10. How nice are the staff?

    Most public schools would be lucky to score a 2.5 It’s only by hiding this ugly truth that the public schools still exist.
