House Bill 2714: An Act Regarding Education Prerequisites for Home Education Programs
Representative Will Bond
This bill would have required a parent or guardian to have a high school diploma or GED before providing a homeschool to a child or ward. Only nine states have this requirement in their homeschool law. Studies conducted on homeschooling have concluded that there is little statistical difference between the academic performance of children whose parents have not finished high school and those who have a college education. HSLDA is unaware of any problem in Arkansas this proposed law would have fixed.
