Dear Representative,


Please pass S.B. 39 on Home School Amendments.    Students and parents who have chosen to homeschool do so because they care deeply about education, along with the where, how, and what of that education.   The idea that somehow homeschooling is the course of the “lazy” is preposterous!     S.B. 39 opens the way for parents and students pursuing the path of homeschooling the flexibility to excel rather than being imprisoned by the stringent requirements of chair time and nationalized curriculum that make their home school just a different location for delivery of the same things they left behind in the public schools.
