Jackson Clarion Ledger, Jackson, Mississippi, 10 April 2007, ’07 Legislature: Home schooling ‘absent’
Conspicuous in its absence in the 2007 Legislature was legislation to tighten laws regarding home schooling.This is an election year, and parents having the easy ability to take their kids out of school is a hot-button issue – perhaps explaining the nonexistence. Call it an “excused” absence, perhaps.
But it should be more carefully studied, and state Superintendent of Education Hank Bounds is doing so, to determine if the state should take action.
Superintendent Bounds got the attention of Jackson homeschoolers last December.
