Sports open to all?

Postby Liana » Thu Feb 09, 2012 1:44 pm

Twenty-five states now allow the rising number of home-schooled students to play sports at public schools with varying restrictions, according to the Home School Legal Defense Association. Alabama and Mississippi are expected to consider similar legislation this year, while Tennessee is deliberating whether to provide wider access to athletics for home-schoolers.

I don't know whether I would even want to play for a public school sports team. I guess I might if there wasn't any other team available to me. It surprises me that twenty five states have made it available to kids who happen to do math in their living room.

This is pretty neat! I've heard this referred to as "The Tebow Effect," in honor of Denver Broncos Quarterback Tim Tebow, who was home schooled but played football for a local public high school.
