Nevada--Calls Needed Today to Stop Homeschool Testing Bill


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

On Wednesday, April 6th, the Assembly Education Committee will be
meeting to discuss Assembly Bill 397. This bill would require testing
of all homeschool students in grades 4, 7, 10, and 11.

Your calls and emails are needed immediately to let the Education
Committee know that homeschoolers in Nevada don't need or want this
bill.

Homeschoolers in Nevada and across the country have a proven track
record over the past twenty years of achieving above average test
scores. Studies have also shown that more regulation of homeschoolers
does not increase the academic performance of homeschoolers.

Furthermore, this bill will require more money and time to be spent by
school districts to administer and track these unnecessary testing
requirements.


ACTION REQUESTED

Please call immediately as many of the committee members as possible
and give them this message:

"Please vote against Assembly Bill 397. Homeschoolers have a proven
track record of scoring above average on standardized achievement
tests and do not need more tests. School districts will have to
implement and track these testing requirements which will increase
costs."
