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:
Parents should have right to send children to the school of their choice. All the money should not follow the student as that disadvantages the public school who has to provide a certain level of service. Although rare, I have witnessed parents home schooling their children and in reality no educating them at all. This is a form of child abuse as those children, when adults, have had no eucation and are at a great disadvantage. That problem could have been prevented had the children been tested. Where is the balance betyween a parents righ to choose and the child right to have an education? Thank you.
