Council to again consider juvenile curfew, 22 April 2007, The Herald Banner, Greenville, Texas The current ordinance, which has been in place for the past dozen years, contains no language specifying whether home-schooled children are exempt from the daytime portion of the curfew, a fact which had caught one Council member’s attention. …
Council member Chris Bracken asked at the April 10 session whether the ordinance exempted home schooled children from the daytime curfew. Bracken said he had been contacted by representatives of home schools in Greenville, along with the Texas Home School Coalition, who believed the daytime curfew was unfair to their students, who generally were under no regulations to remain at their residences during what are typically school hours.
Bracken also noted how under state law, municipalities are forbidden from regulating home school operations.
