Parents who home-school their children in the District are facing tighter regulations. The new rules were written in the wake of a tragedy earlier this year in which four home-schooled children were found dead in their mother’s house in Southeast. But the District’s home-schooling community is concerned the new regulations may have gone too far. Join Kojo as we discuss how the government can best ensure that home-school students are receiving a quality education in safe environments.
