"Tim Tebow Law" Would Let Homeschooled Virginia Kids Play Public School Sports, Already Lets Columnists Complain About Too Much Choice - Hit & Run : Reason Magazine | Legal & Ethical Issues for School Leaders | Scoop.it

"Sometime this week Virginia lawmakers are expected to vote on a lawwhich would allow the state's "tens of thousands of" homeschooled kids to play sports on public school teams; in fact it would prevent public schools from being part of any intramural-type organizations which barred the presence of homeschoolers.HB 947 is known to its friends as as the "Tim Tebow law" because the Denver Broncos quarterback was homeschooled in Florida, but played on his local school's football team after pushing for the bill which gave him permission to do just that. Said bill is expected to pass in in the State House, having already cleared the House Education Committee.


Fourteen states allow for homeschooled kids to play public school sports. Thirteen more allow kids to play with certain conditions attached."
