New home schooling bill enacted

On March 15, 2001, Governor Gary Johnson signed a law that expands home school freedoms in several ways. Known as Senate Bill 374 and introduced by Senator Michael Sanchez, the new law means, first, that home schooling parents no longer have to submit attendance and immunization records to the school district. Second, home schooling students are no longer required to take any standardized tests.

The Christian Association of Parent Educators (CAPE-NM) did a splendid job launching and coordinating the home school lobbyist action-notifying families throughout the state of the need to call their legislators. HSLDA sent out e-lerts and posted late-breaking news on our website to help home schooling parents stay informed on where the bill was each step along the way. Darren A. Jones
