Homeschool freedoms threatened

Legislation is likely to be introduced that would increase restrictions on Michigan homeschoolers. In a recent legislative agenda issued by the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), the association discusses its plan to enact legislation controlling homeschools. Section 6.70 of MASB's Delegate Assembly Handbook, distributed on November 5, 2004, specifically states,

The Michigan Association of School Boards urges the Michigan legislature to set standards for home schools, including a state registration and monitoring system, which would ensure that each child receives instruction comparable to that provided in the public schools in the district of the residence.

Home School Legal Defense Association will be working closely with Michigan legislators to prevent this potential bill from seeing the light of day.
