Changes to PA Homeschool Law Praised by Parents, Questioned by Schools

Changes to homeschool law receives praise from parents, questions from public school officials

One change, which Collins supports, is that the new law eliminates the public school superintendent’s review of a student’s portfolio at the end of the school year to determine whether the student is receiving an “appropriate education.” The parent will continue to be required to have the student’s program evaluated by a qualified person of the parent’s own choosing, but the superintendent must accept an evaluator’s finding that an appropriate education is occurring.
