IDAHO COALITION OF HOME EDUCATORS

2012 Candidate Statement

1. Do you support or oppose requiring families who home educate to register their children with either the state or their local public school district?   Oppose

2. Do you support or oppose requiring all children taught at home to take standardized achievement tests each year?   Oppose

3. What other requirements, if any, would you favor as a condition of a parent’s right to teach his or her children at home?   None

4. Other comments that you wish to make on the subject of home education:   Parents have the natural right and responsibility to educate their children; they do not need "permission" from the state.  As the father of a homeschooling family, I would be the foremost watchdog over any legislative issue that would negatively impact homeschool families.
