State Gives More Freedom to Homeschoolers
Homeschoolers are celebrating a new Pennsylvania law that has removed the power from a school superintendent to judge whether a child is receiving an “appropriate education.”
Effective immediately, parents are no longer required “to submit their portfolios, standardized test results, or any other materials to superintendents for evaluation at the end of the school year.” Homeschoolers in the Keystone State still need their work reviewed by a qualified evaluator, but a homeschool family can now use their own discretion to choose that individual.
Although Pennsylvania continues to have stringent homeschool rules, things appear to be heading in the right direction.
