HB 545 would repeal the department of education’s rulemaking authority for home education programs.
The House Education Committee will hear this bill on 02/08/2011 at 02:00 PM in Representative’s Hall.
You should contact the Committee to let them know of your support for this bill.
Notes: Eliminating the HEAC is good, but eliminating DOE rule-making opens Pandora’s box. This bill eliminates open public discussion of the rules with review by the BOE and JLCAR; in its place there will district disparity, litigation and court rulings to define this inequitable home education law. If DOE rule-making is bad, then eliminate it for everyone, not just homeschoolers. Equal treatment for all.
