WEST VIRGINIA– WHERE ALL HEKs ARE ABOVE AVERAGE

Filed at 2:30 pm under by dcobranchi

I had forgotten this bit of WV homeschooling law:

West Virginia requires homeschoolers to score at or above the 50th percentile on certain standardized tests or to show improvement upon last year’s results in order to demonstrate “acceptable progress.” While this may be an unreasonable requirement (most states that require tests do not require such results: New Hampshire is 40%, Minnesota is 30%, Ohio is 25% and Colorado is 14%), the law does provide alternative options for homeschooling families such as an end-of-year narrative and a review by a certified teacher.
