    Filed at 5:50 am under by dcobranchi

    Oregon home educators have been fighting to get rid of state-mandated testing for a fair while. They got close last year only to face a veto by the governor. Well, maybe second time’s the charm:

    Home-schooled students would not have to take periodic achievement tests unless they participate in sports or other interscholastic activities under a bill passed by the House Tuesday.

    The measure, sent to the Senate on a 37-22 vote, would do away with a requirement that students taught at home by or under the direction of their parents take state-approved exams in grades 3, 5, 8 and 10.
