House Bill 3773: Establishes Virtual Schools
Representative David B. Hawk
This is a bill which would authorize the Tennessee State Board of Education to establish virtual schools as part of the public school system. These at-home public school programs pose a threat to homeschooling because families choosing this option lose the freedom from state control of their children’s education. School districts entice homeschooling families into the virtual school with promises of benefits, but the families also get state control of their homeschool, while the school district gets state funds for each child’s enrollment. This is a companion bill to S.B. 3832.
