PA Gov. Ed Rendell signed the bill forcing all school districts in the state to allow HEKs to participate in extracurriculars. Rah!

Pa. home educators will never get their freedom now. What a sad day.

But isn’t participation, at least now, voluntary? Slippery slope, I see. If parents think that public schools provide good co-curricular activities, then perhaps they should reconsider their choice in homeschooling their children… Their children need saner parents after all :-).

If it was going to happen somewhere PA is probably a good state for it. Nobody there was really free to homeschool anyway.

HS’ers should just steer their kids into sports that aren’t big in the schools – then they get to avoid ever making this decision. Equestrian and fencing both have 4 year scholarships available – no school team required 🙂

What I mean is, anyone who comes to the Pa. legislature now advocating a bill to loosen the state’s ridiculous compliance requirements will be told “We can’t do that — we need those in place for sports!”
