House Bill 158: Homeschool Student Testing Requirements
Representative Mary Helen Garcia
This bill would require homeschoolers to take the state's academic assessment program and also require homeschoolers to take the academic performance tests required of public school students. Any homeschool student who does not demonstrate "adequate yearly progress" could be forced to attend public or private schools.
