Candidate: Dem - John Radford STATE REPRESENTATIVE, POSITION A, District 33
1. Do you support or oppose requiring families who home educate to register their children with either the state or their local public school district?
2. Do you support or oppose requiring all children taught at home to take standardized achievement tests each year?
3. What other requirements, if any, would you favor as a condition of a parent's right to teach his or her children at home?
I would like to see some tool this would ensure our children are spending 4-5 hours a day on their education.
4. Other comments that you wish to make on the subject of home education:
Ibelieve home schooling can be very effective. But success only comes from hard work and the effort and time that is requisite to learn. I would support any efforts to make home schooling more accessible and more affordable. I do want accountability because accountability ensures excellence & a lack of accountibility leads to insconsistent results.
