The Virginia Senate voted Tuesday to pass Del. Rob Bell’s bill allowing homeschooled students to participate in competitive extracurricular activities, including varsity sports teams, at local public schools. The bill is known as the “Tebow Bill” in honor of NFL player and former homeschool student Tim Tebow.
Bell said in an email he feels it is important for homeschooled students have the same access to extracurricular activities as students attending public schools.
UK parents continue to struggle to balance work and homeschooling under new lockdown.
There are nearly 4,000 fewer students enrolled in Rhode Island public schools this year.
