Rep. Mark Martin has filed a good home school bill that will alleviate some of the restrictions placed on home school families by the State of Arkansas. Among other things, the bill eliminates some of the paperwork required to be filed when the child begins home schooling, and makes it easier to transfer from public school to home school mid-semester.
Please do not confuse this bill with Rep. Cook’s BAD home school bill. Rep. Martin’s bill is HB 1989. You can download a copy of the bill here (Note: If the file will not open, right-click the link and select “Save As” to download it to your computer for viewing).
We will keep you informed on this good bill as events unfold.
