Candidate: Rep - Randy Jensen Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction
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?
Parents should have the option to have their students take any classes offered by the local school district.
4. Other comments that you wish to make on the subject of home education:
Parent choice is important for any students education. Parents must have the ability to choose how and where their student will be educated. Student sill must be held accountable for learning and thus my support for taking the assessment, but parents must have the final say in educating their students.
