After restrictions were lifted off Pennsylvania homeschoolers, state legislatures are likely to ease regulations in at least three other states during this legislative session, said Mike Donnelly, staff attorney for the Home School Legal Defense Association.
“It has been a trend to remove unnecessary burdens from homeschoolers,” Donnelly told TheBlaze. “A dozen or so states have updated their laws in the last 10 or 15 years. Most of the regulation were drafted 35 to 40 years ago when home schooling was an unknown. Today we know that homeschooling works well and that some regulations are unnecessary and burdensome.”
