- The Morning Call online, Allentown, Pennsylvania, 15 February 2006, Bethlehem Area mulls testing rule
Saying it is only fair, Bethlehem Area School District officials want homeschoolers to take standardized tests if they want to join sports teams or clubs because that is what the public school students must do.
I’ll just insert my standard opinion that divorcing sports from schools and having them be community activities would solve many of these problems. For other opinions, see Daryl’s blog.
