Neutral. This bill does not affect homeschoolers in its current form. However, it does appear to be a continuation in a dangerous trend that could end up requiring MCAS testing on all public school subjects for admission into state colleges. Such a restriction would act as a de facto regulation for any homeschool family that wished to send their children to a state college. HSLDA would like avoid that issue by using this bill to remind legislators that any consideration of further homeschool regulation would be a very bad idea.
