"Home Schooling" and Public School Athletics

"Home Schooling" and Public School Athletics

We examine the debate about whether home school children should be allowed to participate in activities such as sports at public schools in Virginia.

Virginia lawmakers are considering a proposal to allow home-schooled children to participate in public school athletic programs. The proposed legislation has been nicknamed the "Tim Tebow Law," after the famously home-schooled professional football player. Kojo explores the issues at play and what they could mean for parents and students in the Commonwealth.
