Candidate: Dem - Richard Keller STATE REPRESENTATIVE, POSITION A, District 15
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?
4. Other comments that you wish to make on the subject of home education:
I strongly support the right of parents to educate their children at home. I recognize that there are many reasons parents make this chilce, and that it is the most appropriate education setting for some children. I believe, however, that it is the state's responsibility to protect children by ensuring that they get an education adequate to prepare them for their future lives. For that reason, I support annual standardized tests, and registration to ensure that all home educated students take those tests.
