After passing out of the state senate by a wide margin the Tim Tebow bill as it’s known has a much harder road ahead in the house of delegates. The bill would correct a current anti-homeschooler pattern of discrimination by the public schools in West Virginia. Much like the famous Christian football and baseball player who’s name is on the bill go to experience in high school, this legislation would change the law so West Virginia high school students currently homeschooled or in a private school, would be able to play sports in the public school district where they live.
The parents are already double paying for the public high school stadiums, the ball fields, the uniforms, the coaches salaries and the team travel expenses, all from their taxes. This has always been true even if their kids are home schooled or the parents pay separate tuition for private school. This bill will allow the parents to take advantage of a few of their education tax dollars for a child who wishes to play on a public school ball team.
The union school teachers who are in the House of Delegates in West Virginia owe it to these kids to join many other states and stop blockading this bill.
