City officials couldn't find any records that the fire marshal conducted required annual inspections at a California home that doubled as a private school where authorities say 13 malnourished siblings were kept captive in filthy conditions by their parents. Private schools in California are not licensed by the state education department and no agency regulates or oversees them, although they are supposed to register the number of students.
