Senate Bill 3412: An Act Mandating Gateway and Exit Testing on Non-Public School Students
Senator Reginald Tate
This bill would subject non-public school students, including homeschool students, to additional state testing. It would require them to take subject matter tests based upon state-approved textbooks. It would also require them to pass the Tennessee comprehensive assessment program tests before receiving a high school diploma. These new testing requirements would also apply to students being taught at home through extension or satellite programs of church-related schools. This is a companion bill to House Bill 2795.
This bill is the most threatening legislation to the freedoms of homeschooling families in many years. It should be opposed.
