Home Schooling Article in Montana

Thanks for the link.

The real problem seems to be the age old question of who owns the children? The State, or the Parents?

I am a big believer in providing opportunities, but the busybodies need to make sure they do it with voluntary funds, not money that was stolen (taxes). And they need to make sure that they are never forcing anyone to benefit from the opportunities they want to provide.

And I think that for the majority, homeschool would be the best option. Name any of our founding fathers that were public schooled  :)

Had SB 291 passed, these students would have been required to take standardized tests in fourth, eighth and 11th grades. Additionally, in homeschools where no parent has either a Montana teaching license or a college degree, the state would have required oversight of the first two years of homeschooling by a qualified monitor chosen by the parent or the school district.

I think home schooling is one of those areas where don't ask/don't tell is a wise policy.  :ph34r:
