House Bill 1872: An Act Creating Virtual Public Schools
Representative David Hawk
This bill would enact the Virtual Public Schools Act, which would create a public school option at home. HSLDA does not consider this to be a good option for homeschoolers because of the associated state control of such public programs. Additionally, it appears that the local school district or charter school would get full funding from the state for each student, even though the student did not attend the regular school. This is the companion bill to Senate Bill 2008.
