HEADS UP: NC

HB 253 would allow HEKs to play public school sports. I believe I can support passage as enough states have shown that this can work without imposing restrictions on the homeschooling community in general.

I do have one problem with the bill as written:

Assessment of academic progress. – A home schooled student shall demonstrate any required academic eligibility in all subjects taken in the home schooled program by a method of evaluation agreed upon by the parent and the school principal.

I’m not sure that doesn’t just grant the principal veto power. What if the parent and the principal can’t agree? What if the principal requires that the HEK pass the EOC (end of class) tests?

I’m sorry I ever used the term “government schools.” I am NOT some right-wing fanatic.

We’re up in NYC for a quick vacation and are heading out to the St. Patrick’s Day parade in a bit.

I’m not wearing a spot of green.

ON THE ROAD. AGAIN.

I’m in WV all this week for DuPont. While I’m here I’m going to go out with the Realtor to look at houses. Yes, we’re really moving to Parkersburg, WV in June.
