In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Lennie Jarratt, project manager for education at The Heartland Institute joins host Donald Kendal to talk about a newly proposed bill that would treat homeschoolers like a private school, allowing them to receive federal money.
The bill, S. 306 – Enhancing Educational Opportunities for all Students Act, was proposed by Republican Senator Mike Lee and Co-sponsored by Senator and Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. While the bill is generally well-received by advocates of school choice, some homeschoolers fear this access to federal money will inevitably usher in greater federal regulation.
Jarratt also talks about the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia and how it will effect the Supreme Court case of Friedrichs v. California Teachers Union.
