NEW HAMPSHIRE POISED FOR LANDMARK HOMESCHOOL VOTE
Purcellville, VA—On Wednesday, January 6 the New Hampshire House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on an amendment to House Bill 368 which, if passed, would make New Hampshire’s homeschool law the most restrictive and burdensome in the nation. "Members of the Democratic leadership are taking advantage of the system and attempting to slip through the most anti-homeschool legislation ever conceived in New Hampshire," said Mike Donnelly, staff attorney for HSLDA.
Despite the fact that a bi-partisan legislative study committee recently voted 14–6 to retain New Hampshire’s existing homeschool law, the Democratic leadership kept the bill alive and placed it among 30 other bills which are all scheduled for separate votes on Wednesday, January 6.
The proposed amendment to H.B. 368 would require that every homeschooled student be tested every year, a portfolio review be conducted for every student every year. Home educated students’ test scores would also have to be sent to the New Hampshire Department of Education each year, and the DOE would be granted sweeping rule making authority.
"This legislation is completely unnecessary. The existing New Hampshire law works well, and in an era when homeschoolers are significantly outperforming their public school counterparts the last thing homeschoolers and taxpayers need is another bureaucracy wasting their time and money," said Donnelly.
While he warns me....his libertarian paradise of NH, after voting for Obama,....they're trying to sneak in a fascist little Nazi regulation on those pernicious little homeschoolers!
Now look, I'm no *party guy*, but everyone who falls into the us-versus-them-ism of party politics has to take a hard look at which one is repeatedly engaging in all sorts of underhanded politicking. They did the same thing in my town recently; they called some midnight meeting, around a holiday I believe, to jam through some *windmill* approval BS. It's always the same people who pull this crap.
And my wife and I got a good laugh at some of the otherwise blue people in town who were sandbagged by the standard operating procedure of dissembling pinkos.
