TO ALL OHIO HOME SCHOOLERS, PUBLIC SCHOOL AND CHARTER SCHOOL PARENTS.....Essentially, this concerns every family!!! Please take note, these are basic freedoms that every family has, so please read and make a call or send an email:
The issue with SB 248 is that it clearly revises a notification process for home educators in Ohio that has worked for nearly 25 years. The system failed the child and the system needs to be fixed, not innocent home schooling families. Charter school parents are in even more hot water because there are more restrictions. In attempting to protect children in abusive situations, this bill violates the freedom of innocent families. Clearly, there are better ways to handle these kinds of issues without violating the freedom of innocent families. For that purpose, the whole bill needs to be scraped. Home schoolers and charter school parents need to be left out of this. Again, the page we have up for State Senator Cafaro is here: http://www.ohioansforfreedom.com/OhioSBE/OhioSenate/OhioSenateDistrict32.aspx
Requiring public children service agencies to recommend whether a child should be home schooled or admitted to a computer or internet based community school is unacceptable. The bill needs to be withdrawn.
Senator Cafaro is receiving a large amount of calls from home schoolers but she needs to hear from charter school parents, as well. 614-466-7182
