There is a very important pro-homeschool education bill that CWA of North Dakota is in full support of, HB 1052.
- The bill meets CWA’s goal of providing quality of education to a level of excellence in academic achievement, without governmental mandates that are detrimental to parental rights.
- It provides needed clarification relating to home education to allow not only a child’s parent but also a child’s legal guardian to provide homeschool supervision.
- It clarifies the ways parents and legal guardians acting as supervisors have the option to use multiple outside resources to effectively enhance the student’s learning environment. It makes clear parents’ rights to incorporate resources such as tutors or online curriculum programs to enhance their child’s curriculum.
On Monday, January 8, I testified on behalf of homeschool parents and their children. Read testimony here.
HB 1052 is expected to be voted on within the Education Committee any day now.
