Senate Bill 2627: Proof of Homeschooling Required for Driver’s License
Shirley K. Turner (D)
This bill would require our teens to prove that they are “enrolled in a home education program that satisfies all state requirements governing such programs” in order to get a driver’s license.
This would be extremely dangerous if enacted because:
1. Neither the bill nor current law defines “home education program.” Enacting an undefined term will give an activist judge or the legislature a chance to define us, which would definitely restrict our freedom, possibly dramatically.
2. It seems to invite the creation of new “state requirements.” It suggests that the current standard, “equivalent instruction,” does not impose enough requirements.
