Oppose. Although this bill has little direct effect on homeschoolers, its indirect effects are quite serious. Other states with similar legislation have seen a surge in "fake homeschoolers" who pretend to be homeschooling when they have really simply dropped out. Homeschoolers are hurt when dropouts use homeschooling as a cover for their own misconduct.
