Goochland School Board Backs Down

Good news…the school board came to their senses.

Goochland Co. School Board votes to repeal religious exemption policy

GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Hundreds of passionate parents came out to Tuesday night’s Goochland School Board meeting.
They were there because of a religious exemption policy put in place by the school board in 2013. The policy requires children ages 14 and up who want to be home schooled to provide a statement about their religious beliefs to the school system.

As part of that, the board reserves the right to bring the child and his or her parent in for a hearing.

However, after listening to many people’s concerns, the board voted to repeal the policy.
