Math tests controversy continues

As reported in the May/June 2001 issue of The Home School Court Report, the Tennessee Department of Education is attempting to impose end-of-course math tests on home school students at the high school level. According to a memorandum dated February 21, 2001, from the department, these students are expected to be tested in the areas of Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry if they are enrolled in these courses.

So far this school year, Home School Legal Defense Association has assisted 12 member families residing in 10 school districts with contacts from public school officials expecting them to participate in this unauthorized testing. None of the families HSLDA assisted have been required to take these tests. Other families not desiring to have these math tests administered to their children should contact HSLDA for assistance.
