    Judy Aron sent a link to a bill filed in the Kentucky legislature that would allow for “voluntary” certification of homeschools. Voluntary. Riiight! How long before they were compulsory?

    (2) The administrative regulations shall address but not be limited to the following organizational and instructional standards:
    (a) The application review process;

    (b) The minimum teacher qualifications;

    (c) The minimum curriculum offerings;

    (d) The minimum testing requirements, which may include scheduled administration of nationally norm-referenced tests; and

    (e) Other standards required to carry out the purposes of this section.

    This is very bad. The last thing we want is for the state to be setting up certifications of homeschools. That’s worse than Pennsylvania, even. Kentucky home educators- please shoot this down ASAP.
