Senate Bill 68: Student Education Accounts
Sponsors:
Senators Hill of the 6th, Stone of the 23rd, Albers of the 56th, Williams of the 27th, Payne of the 54th, and others
Summary:

This bill would create individual student education accounts to be funded by the state. Parents could use money in these accounts to pay for certain educational expenses. Homeschool parents could use money in the accounts to pay for curriculum, a private tutor (provided the tutor is a state-certified teacher), behavior, speech, occupational, and physical therapy services, and even postsecondary tuition. In order to receive the funds, parents would be required to report standardized test results to the state on an annual basis.

HSLDA is opposed to government funding of homeschool programs because it invites government regulation and threatens the autonomy and freedom of homeschooling.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:
