Bill may impose testing on home-schoolers

A bill recently introduced in the Michigan House would require home-school students to take the MEAP test and submit their scores to the state.

The bill, H.B. 4521, was sponsored by Rep. Michael Switalski, D-Roseville.

The bill faces strong opposition from Michigan home-schoolers and the national Home School Legal Defense Association, who say the bill infringes on parental rights and imposes unnecessary regulations on home-schoolers.

The bill was referred to the House Education Committee in late March.
