"From our homeschool lobbyist:My friend Dana has all the info you need. Call our legislature and tell them to banish this ridiculous and vague language giving our already poor educational bureaucracy even more mandate power over those who out perform public school kids in every arena.
Senate Bill 291 modifies the language in 167.031.6 to extend compulsory attendance indefinitely, based on an unidentified standard of 16 high school credits before a student is released from the compulsory attendance statute. This means, home educators would have to prove their student had 16 acceptable credits before considering their mandatory education complete. While this MAY occur at an age younger than 16, it could also extend to 18 or even 20 if the un-named authority did not accept the credits of the home school. And again, just who assess the validity fo those 16 credits is not defined in the bill."
Good luck you guys-MY call is already in!
