Ohio Senators Throw Haymaker at HomeschoolingSubmitted by RonPauler on Wed, 12/18/2013 - 09:41
This law would put an onerous amount of power into the hands of children's services in determining who can home-school and who can't. Some say it only applies to open children's services cases, but who decides when a case is open?
There isn't much chance of this passing, but it would be terrible if it did. Ohio recently considered some changes to the amount of homeschooling oversight and it was roundly defeated, the only change being a single updated bit of terminology that neither side disagreed with, but the fact that the lawmakers were being watched closely enough that so much consideration was put into this insignificant change tells me this wild clutch at power isn't going to go far.
