House Bill 1377: Requires Postsecondary Education Institutions to Compile and Report on Remedial Education
Sponsors:
Representatives Gregory Hill, Kathleen Lauer-Rago, Sean Cox and Spec Bowers
Summary:

If passed, HB1377 would require every New Hampshire postsecondary school to submit a report to the legislature including the name and location of homeschools whose graduates are enrolled in postsecondary remedial classes. The report would be annually available to the Senate president, speaker of the House, education committees, and the public, revealing, in addition to other statistical information, the name and location of all previous high schools attended by students currently enrolled in postsecondary remedial courses, including homeschool programs.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.

HB1377 is a blatant overstepping of authority by the New Hampshire legislature, mandating the collection of information about homeschool programs. All students should be able to enroll in college courses, including remedial courses without their personal information being released to the public. New Hampshire already has sufficient guidelines for overseeing students taking remedial courses.
