On Tuesday, February 5th, Representatives Brannan, Anthony, Horne and
Jefferson introduced H3478 in the SC House of Representatives. This
bill would require ALL home schoolers to take state approved
standardized tests, would require SCAIHS and all third option groups to
report NAMES, not numbers, to the Department of Education each year and
would eliminate ALL third option groups effective July 1, 2014. The
bill is currently in the House Committee on Education & Public
Works. If this is a bill that you think should not be passed (!!) please
call your representative and let him/her know. Please be polite and
calm. You can read the bill for yourself at www.scstatehouse.gov/sess120_2013-2014/bills/3478.htm.
If you have any questions, you may call or email the SCHEA office.
