Homeschooling Your Child with a Food Allergy? Not for long if you live in California...

Looks like California has an issue with folks homeschooling their kids. If the state has its way, anyone homeschooling their kids must be credentialed. Here's an article in the SF Chronicle that talks more about the impact of the ruling:
A California appeals court ruling clamping down on homeschooling by parents without teaching credentials sent shock waves across the state this week, leaving an estimated 166,000 children as possible truants and their parents at risk of prosecution.
The homeschooling movement never saw the case coming.
I must admit, the thought of homeschooling Bella has crossed my mind due to her allergy, but her schools so far have been accomodating. Not sure I'm disciplined enough though. Plus, living in the Bay Area makes it difficult to live solely on one salary.
How about you guys? Do any of you homeschool your kids? Is it due to their allergies or just because you feel you can give them a better education?
