“It is great working with CHEO to protect the rights of homeschooling in Ohio,” he said. “I am pleased to work with CHEO’s legislative liaison Melanie Elsey, state legislators and others to insure that these amendments will not infringe or place additional burdens on homeschoolers—which, so far, they have not. And we will work to make sure they don’t ever.”

In HSLDA’s experience there is always a concern that equal access legislation can result in unwanted intrusion or additional regulations. HSLDA and CHEO will continue to monitor the state board to insure that the rulemaking that accompanies these law changes does not infringe on homeschooling rights. Ohio homeschoolers should support CHEO for their great work defending homeschooling freedom in Ohio
