Live Momma at LiveJournal is of the opinion that HSLDA gave outÂ incomplete informationÂ about theÂ choices for homeschool complianceÂ in Iowa.
Live Momma, 25 October 2006, HSLDA’s Weekly Update – incorrect info for Iowa!
It’s great that The NICHE was able to resolve this issue. It’s unfortunate that HSLDA’s coverage of the issue includes incomplete information about parents’ options! Parents in Iowa have four options for homeschooling. The first is to partner with the school district through the Home School (sic) Assistance Program. Second, parents may choose to submit test scores. Third, parents may submit a portfolio for review. Or, finally, parents may choose to work with a supervising teacher who does not report to the school at all.
The irony is, Urbandale school district makes a mistake, and the letter goes to hundreds of families. HSLDA errs, and the letter goes to thousands!Â
