HOME SCHOOLING
(2008-04-10)
(wgvu) - SOME FAMILIES THAT HOME SCHOOL THEIR
CHILDREN ARE CRITICIZING A MICHIGAN HOUSE BILL THAT WOULD HAVE THEM
REGISTER THEIR NAMES AND ADDRESSES WITH PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS.
THE LEGISLATION DREW PROTESTS IN LANSING AS PART OF AN ANNUAL
HOME SCHOOLING DAY AT THE CAPITOL.
OPPONENTS SAY THE BILL SEEKS UNNECESSARY OVERSIGHT AND COULD BE
A STEP TOWARD GOVERNMENT REGULATION.
THE BILL'S SPONSOR, DEMOCRAT BRENDA CLACK OF FLINT, SAYS THOSE
FEARS ARE UNWARRANTED.
SHE SAYS THE BILL IS AN ACCOUNTABILITY MEASURE AND COULD HELP
DISTRICTS BETTER PLAN THEIR FUTURE BUILDING AND STAFFING NEEDS.
