Another Bullet Dodged

Thousands of homeschooling families in New Hampshire mobilized to fight a major infringement that could have seriously affected their ability to homeschool. The alert went out to contact legislators concerning this attack in the form of a proposal to change New Hampshire's homeschooling regulations. The proposed change would have required every homeschool student be tested every year, a portfolio review be conducted for every student, and test scores reported annually to the state's Dept. of Education. The measure was soundly defeated 324-34.

What was unique and ominous about the proposal was that it had already been defeated by a vote of 14-6 in a bi-partisan legislative study committee. Yet Democratic leaders collaborated to bring the measure to the floor anyway for a vote. Thankfully, rank and file Democrats joined Republicans to support homeschoolers.
