NEW YORK

Favorable homeschool bills stalled

The homeschool freedom bills being considered by the New York legislature appear to be stalled from further progress during the 2003 session, despite intense lobbying efforts by their proponents. Senate Bill 2060 passed the New York Senate on June 2, 2003, but Assembly Bill 4598 has yet to pass the Assembly Education Committee. These bills may still be considered this year if the legislature reconvenes this fall.

Many thanks to New York's main homeschool support group, Loving Education at Home (LEAH), which organized a rally at the capitol in support of these bills and worked tirelessly for their passage. Home educators in New York will continue their fight to obtain legislative relief from the most restrictive homeschool law in the nation.
