Home school bill requiring notice OK’d, 15 May 2008, The Union Leader, Manchester, New Hampshire
The New Hampshire House passed a bill that requires home schooling parents to notify schools within five days when they pull a child out of public school.
The bill, Senate Bill 337, passed on a 188-168 vote. It was changed after leaving the Senate in response to complaints from home schoolers. It was stripped of a requirement that parents file a one-time teaching plan, and added a commission to study home school laws.
Home schooled: Weakened bill has no point, 14 May 2008, The Union Leader, Manchester, New Hampshire
There was a point to the original bill. Like it or not, it actually did something. This one does nothing but tinker with some laws apparently for no other point than to salvage a bill that really should have been killed. The House should put this lame creature out of its misery.
Sabrina Avedisian: Home schooling has given me tremendous opportunities, 12 May 2008, The Union Leader, Manchester, New Hampshire
1st-person account of homeschooling. In the comments section, readers take her on, and one goes so far as to grade the article.
I give the essay a D grade for effectiveness, and a C for composition, C- overall. This is because; however positive, the writer never does back up her main point, “HOME SCHOOLING provides amazing opportunities for students.”
