Targeting Homeschoolers in Oklahoma – SB 393, SB 394


Homeschooling is a right enjoyed by parents and students alike, and one which has produced better results than the government-run institutions.   One Oklahoma legislator wants to change that.

Senator Jim Wilson

State Senator Jim Wilson (D-SD 3) has authored SB 393 and SB 394, both targeting one of the least regulated and most successful institutions in Oklahoma – the homeschool community.

1) SB 393http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/2011-12SB/SB393_int.rtf
An act relating to school attendance; removing exception for children being home schooled. Effective date. Emergency
 
2) SB 394http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/2011-12SB/SB394_int.rtf
An act relating to school attendance; establishing notification requirements for certain students; removing exception for certain students. Effective date. Emergency 

Both of these bills interfer with the rights and responsibilities of the parent, place an unwarranted burden on families, and expand government intrusion into the lives of its citizens

Tell Senator Wilson to withdraw both of these bad bills from consideration.

  3. Laurette: I was pleased to learn that your family moved to Oklahoma in part because of our homeschool-friendliness. I maintain this is an attribute Oklahoma should market more strenuously: http://bit.ly/ccnzno

  5. Wilson is the only guy to fall all over himself in favor of ObamaCare. He comes from a very corrupt corner of the state – Adair/Cherokee county. Check out my pieces on it on Red Dirt Report. He is arrogant and insulting to anyone who dares question him.

  7. Thanks for posting that. Every year some legislator tries this (last year it was Sen. Mary Easley). I say turnabout is fair play: http://bit.ly/ePU3CC
