Editor’s Note: Follow No2Tebow Bill on Facebook here
Texas is an exceptional state in regards to homeschooling. We are not one of the most free to homeschool in, we are the most free to homeschool in. Because of this, comparing the other states that have passed “Tebow” bills to Texas and the lack of new regulations those bills have so far produced is simply an illegitimate argument. Home schooling is practiced in all 50 states and parents have the right to choose to homeschool under those individual state laws. Texas is the only state where home educating parents are completely free of regulation in any form, be it district approval, curriculum approval, registering with districts, or mandated testing, etc… Therefore, if even one regulation that is equal to what the other states already have in place; Texas has then raised its regulations on homeschooling 100%. THSC president has made the statement that “nothing in the current bill” brings regulations to those who choose to participate, but the key word there is current and there is no guarantee that once it leave committee it will resemble how it is “currently”(THSC, 2015).
