House Bill 1266: A Bill to Allow Homeschoolers to Partially Enroll in Public School

Author:
Rep. Thomas J. Brunner

Summary:
This bill would provide the same funding to students who were educated at home in virtual public schools as those enrolled in brick-and-mortar schools. Not only have virtual schools proven ineffective sources of education, but to provide such an inexpensive method of schooling with such a high level of funding is fiscally irresponsible.
