THIS IS A BAD BILL
Senate Bill 5537 is really about forcing homeschool parents to register and test beginning at age 5 instead of age 8.
Why this matters
Senate Bill 5537 matters because not all children are ready for school at the same time. We even have staggered ages of admission based on birthdates in our regular school years policy. Parents must be able to decide what age their child is ready for the testing that comes with home schooling. That testing is not what public school system children are subjected to. They do not test them at all any more!
