Homeschooler? Papers Please…
Senator Edward D. Maloney doesn’t trust you with your own children. He trusts you so little that he has introduced this bill to the Illinois state assembly which is summarized as follows:
105 ILCS 5/2-3.25o
105 ILCS 5/26-1
from Ch. 122, par. 26-1
Amends the School Code. Requires the parents or legal guardians of
children attending non-public schools, a defined term, or private or
parochial schools to annually register their children with the State Board
of Education, in conformance with procedures prescribed by the State Board
To put this into perspective, Illinois, which has some of the most draconian gun laws in the state, only requires that you register your weapon once. And the weapons owners only have to register with the police who tend to be divided on the whole firearm ownership issue – not with groups that openly oppose your rights. and who feel your very existence is a threat to them.
This hasn’t been passed yet – the weather has slowed down its progress. If you homeschool or support homeschoolers, you still have time to let your state representatives know how you feel about this.
