Senator Bobbie Freshauer,(D) Monongalia County, has introduced a bill that would call for all parents who homeschool to have at least a ninth grade education.

The bill [SB 2PLS-2EQ4] is presently being considered by committee, but is already creating immense statewide opposition. Freshauer is the legislator who also initiated the bill in 2010 that required all state school board members have a high school diploma or equivalent. It was never passed.

Freshauer’s newly proposed legislation has homeschoolers up in arms, especially in rural areas like Lincoln and Mingo Counties where public schools are underperforming and hiring qualified teachers has been difficult.
