House Bill 530: College Scholarships for Homeschoolers
Rep. Charlie Howard (District 26)
This bill prohibits universities and the state of Texas from discriminating against homeschoolers when granting scholarships for college tuition. Unfortunately, the word "homeschool" is inserted in the bill, opening the door for regulation of homeschoolers. Currently homeschools operate under the private school law; adding "homeschool" would create a third category of schools that would have to be defined and regulated.

HSLDA will support this bill if the word "homeschool" is changed to "private school."
None at this time.
