Homeschool Freedom Bill

Homeschoolers Protected by New Utah Law

"A bill shielding homeschooling parents from requirements that they meet state credential standards and give public school officials records of what they teach passed unanimously in both houses of the Utah legislature in February.

"Because the [state statute] was vague, it led to inconsistent and varying interpretations between school districts, and even between people within school districts," he continued. "We just wanted to clarify it in favor of the parents, and let the school districts focus on educating the children they have the privilege of educating.""
