    Diana at Beyond the Whispers doesn’t like the new Tenn. HOPE scholarships at all, particularly the discrimination against homeschoolers. Let’s hope the legislators fix this in January, as promised.

    One must be careful how legislatures fix these things, though. There’s a bill in Jersey that is meant to open HOPEs to “homeschooled” students — but “homeschooled” isn’t defined in New Jersey law. So, this one piece of legislation could lead to a broader one that precisely defines homeschooled — something we do not want.

    Now, there is a simple fix, which is to echo the statutory language we already have, opening the scholarships to students educated “elsewhere than at school.”

    Good point and precisely the reason that I’m opposed to HR2732.
