AB19 is being voted on today at 1pm. You may remember, this is the bill the Dept of Ed brought forth and used as a stance that they are over homeschoolers. The assembly committee bought in! Meanwhile, this same thing was tried over on the senate side, and THEY listened and struck out the homeschool section.
Action Alert- call the assembly ed committee, email them TODAY and tell them to strike out section one in AB19 before they vote on it.

I am a homeschooling parent and am opposed to any changes to the homeschooling laws. AB19 seeks to change both homeschool and public school laws, with no understanding or accommodation of the differences between the two. Further, no homeschoolers were consulted prior to this proposed change. The Nevada homeschool community does NOT want the verbiage changed and would like to be removed from this bill all together. Please leave our laws alone.
