    DUMB QUESTION The NCLB Act provides that school districts must allow students to transfer out of “unsafe” schools. A local politician doesn’t really get it.

    Sen. James Rhoades, R-Schuylkill, wondered whether home-based instruction, either through homeschooling or enrollment in an online charter school, was acceptable for students in districts that could neither provide transfers to another local school nor find a neighboring district that would enroll them.

    Pennsylvania politicians tend to be anti-homeschooling. But, we’re “ok” when we can help them out of a jam.
