The other day, I blogged about a proposal to cut the Home Study Office in Vermont and shift the oversight of homeschoolers to the local school districts.
The latest word from Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca is that the change would require the approval of the legislature (since the proceedure for homeschooling is dictated by a very detailled statute), so nothing will be done this year.
This is not over, though. The new commissioner does want to take a look at ways to streamline the home study enrollment process. We should expect a proposal next year.
