Assembly Bill (AB) 2926 would create a new state-level advisory committee to consider imposing additional requirements on homeschools. The bill directs the new committee to consider mandating new health and safety inspections of homeschools, specific curriculum standards, and required credentialing or certification of parents. As sweeping as such mandates would be, the bill further states that proposals would not be limited to those categories.
The PJI—Center for Public Policy (PJI-CPP) sent a detailed letter of opposition this week to AB 2926. The bill is scheduled for a hearing in the Assembly Education Committee on April 11 at 1:30 p.m. PJI-CPP is encouraging homeschooling families in California to contact their Assembly Members and attend the hearing on April 11.
