Texas: Calls Needed to Support Homeschooler Access to Exams
Dear HSLDA members and friends:
An important bill, H.B. 1844, has been introduced by Representative
Charlie Howard. This bill requires public school districts to publish
the dates of testing for the PSAT to homeschoolers and allow
homeschoolers to take AP tests.
We have had reports from our members in the past that they have been
denied access to these tests. This bill will remedy the situation.
H.B. 1844 will likely be considered by the House Public Education
Committee on Tuesday, March 27, 2007. Your calls are needed now to
ensure the committee will pass this bill.
Please call as many members of the House Public Education Committee as
possible, and give them this message:
"Please vote in favor of H.B. 1844, introduced by Rep. Howard. This
bill will end the discrimination against homeschool students seeking
to take college entrance exams and PSAT and AP testing."
