The state of Virginia failed to pass the Tim “Tebow bill” this week, according to the Washington Post.Virginia’s Senate killed the bill, which would’ve allowed home-schooled students to participate in sports at their local public schools.
Those against the bill have issue with the standards, or lack thereof, in home-schooling.
Opponents, including some school boards and PTAs, say home-schooled kids would not be required to meet the same academic criteria as public school athletes — attend and pass five classes per day — and that they would have taken team slots from their public school counterparts.
A similar bill in the state of Florida allowed a home-schooled Tim Tebow to play for his nearby high school.
