NEVADA

Homeschoolers keep gaining

Much has happened in Nevada since last May, when the department of education announced that every homeschool curriculum had to be inspected to make sure it complies with the state's new "content standards." Hardworking families created a new statewide organization, drafted proposed regulations, and lobbied members of the state board of education, resulting in enactment of 80% of their improvements. But freedom-loving families in the Silver State are not satisfied with 80% liberty. A united homeschool community is pushing ahead for more improvements in the regulations.

Home School Legal Defense Association is working together with the Nevada Homeschool Network and the leadership of the Northern and Southern Homeschool Advisory Councils to draft a new round of proposed regulations. In December 2002, five people who objected to the last round of proposed regulations derailed the consensus draft. This time, homeschoolers are prepared for such objections, and hope to get the right regulations enacted into law.
