I’ve been wondering how HR 1388 and its broad-spectrum involvement of.. well.. seemingly everyone.. would affect those who are home schooled. You know the government wants their grubby little paws on them. Well, Justmytruth found the nugget of information in HR 1388 that I knew had to be there:
Section 114 is 2 paragraphs on how they decide who is eligible or not and who gets picked for the money/program.
‘SEC. 115. PARTICIPATION OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS FROM PRIVATE SCHOOLS. This section is all about private schools and their ability to participate including getting waivers from the Corporation!
‘(b) Waiver- If a State, Territory, Indian tribe, or local educational agency is prohibited by law from providing for the participation of students or teachers from private nonprofit schools as required by subsection (a), or if the Corporation determines that a State, Territory, Indian tribe, or local educational agency substantially fails or is unwilling to provide for such participation on an equitable basis, the Chief Executive Officer shall waive such requirements and shall arrange for the provision of services to such students and teachers. Such waivers shall be subject to the requirements of sections 9503 and 9504 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 7883 and 7884).
So, even if it is illegal for them to do so, this Corporation, can waive the requirements for this particular *agency* and they can or will still participate. So, like it or not, unless you home school your children, they will participate come hell or high water…
