South Dakota--Mandatory Monitoring Bill Likely to Flunk First Test

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================

January 30, 2004


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Under current law, public schools have the option of monitoring the
required assessment tests of homeschoolers. Few exercise their
option. But a new bill would compel public schools to monitor these
tests. Fortunately, the bill is likely to fail at the first hurdle.

The Senate Education Committee has scheduled the bill, SB 156, for
Tuesday, February 3rd. Carroll Torberson of South Dakota Christian
Home Educators, however, reports that 5 of the 6 committee members
firmly oppose the bill. This virtually ensures the bill will fail
when it is evaluated in the committee.

We are not recommending any action. We will continue to follow the
bill carefully.


Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
