NV Homeschoolers- There is now a second bill threatening the constitutional rights of parents choosing to homeschool their children separate from public school law. For the most current information see NHN’s SB194 information page.
SB194 Section 6 needs to be struck! SB194, as with AB19, proposes to add content to the core academic subjects, INCLUDING TO HOMESCHOOLERS! This is, again, with no input from homeschoolers and usurps our parental rights. They are really trying hard to conform homeschoolers to public school standards.
Please do the following NOW! The bill will be heard on FRIDAY!
