    The bill; not the car. The Kaseman’s, writing in HEM, have published an article on why homeschoolers should oppose the HSLDA-written HONDA legislation. It’s a thoughful piece and I’m inclined to agree with most of their points. The executive summary (but be sure to click over and read the whole thing):

    Homeschooling legislation recently introduced in the U. S. Congress would open the door to federal regulation of homeschooling, perhaps through required standardized testing; generate a backlash against homeschoolers; and encourage homeschoolers to rely on so-called experts. It would not result in the benefits to homeschoolers that HSLDA claims it would. Homeschoolers who oppose this legislation need to contact their federal representatives so they do not assume that HSLDA speaks for homeschoolers or that homeschoolers want this legislation.

    My initial feeling prior to actually reading the bill and researching was that there is no need for any federal legislation related to homeschooling. However, all the problems this bill may cause certainly will create a bunch of work for HSLDA…
