Daily Herad, Provo, Utah, 20 February 2007, Home-schooled children may soon play on district school sports teams
Students who are educated at home, or who attend private or charter schools, would be eligible to play on sports teams and participate in other extracurricular activities at regular public schools in the districts where they reside under a proposal that passed a final Senate vote Monday.
Apparently the story caught the eye of others because there is discussion at Sean Hannity.
The thing that catches my eye at the original report is:
Households pay taxes for public schools regardless of where their children go to school, he said.
“Parents have paid for the cake, and if they want to eat a little piece of that cake, they should be able to.”
In that case, I, as an empty-nester, want my piece of the cake, too. I bet my tax-paying kids want some cake too.
