Alabama Considers Own ‘Tim Tebow Act’ (Video)

An Alabama senator has filed a ‘Tim Tebow Act’ very similar to the one Sen. Baker (R-Conway) is sponsoring here in Arkansas.  As we’ve been reporting, the bills are designed to do one thing: Allow home school students to try out for extracurricular activities at their local public school.

One Response to Alabama Considers Own ‘Tim Tebow Act’ (Video)

    Hello!!

    I am one of the homeschooling moms who spoke just April 1, 2009 at our legislative offices in Montgomery…while our Chairman of the Senate Education committee refused to allow it to be voted on, she did declare she would hold a summit of ALL parties (meaning Alabama Education Association rep, Board of Education rep..more along those lines) to come to a compromise…she suggested mandating the homeschool student attend 2-3 classes in the schools..and she refused to let a member from the homeschooling community attend the summit. This has been frustrating but at least it is something. I am putting together documents to take personally to the Senate committee over the next few weeks…I would greatly appreciate if you could forward my information to someone who might be able to get the particulars on your bill and bullet list the key points…if you need the same for me, I would love to help, you can see most of the questions answered at the website http://www.timtebowbill.com Thank you!!

    Blessings,
