Legislative Threat in Arizona

At an October meeting of the Arizona School Board Association, Graham County Schools Superintendent Phyllis Bryce called for testing homeschoolers every two years. According to the Eastern Arizona Courier, "a rumble of assent rose from the crowd of ASBA members" when Superintendent Bryce said, "We feel like there should be some accountability" for homeschoolers. While no specific legislative proposals have yet appeared, Arizona homeschoolers should be prepared for possible challenges when the legislature convenes in January.
