Homeschoolers Barred from H.S. Sports but Illegal Immigrant Peers Play On

Is it “fair” that illegal immigrants and foreign exchange students are allowed to play high school football on Friday nights and to participate in extra curricular activities at public schools, while many of their peers, who are legal US citizens but who happen to be homeschooled, are being denied “equal” access to the same opportunities in their local communities?

In Virginia last week, seven Democrats and a lone Republican, perhaps unaware or unmoved by such a discrepancy, made the point moot and rejected the so called “Tebow Bill” that sought to “level the playing field.”

    Of course it’s unfair, and no one should be surprised. Remember who’s in charge these days.

    Comment from the article: ‘When did public education become free?’

    60% of my property tax bill is for ‘free education’ that illegal alien parents don’t pay but that most home schooled kids’ parents do.

    Gawd. It almost sounds like unions are in charge.

    This is the kind of shite that would make our Founders weep.

    “…This is the kind of shite that would make our Founders weep……”

    I am pretty sure that our founders would do more than weep if they were present today……….

    This one will go to the courts. If they pay property taxes, they should be able to play in their district. It’s obvious. The arguments they make against it are devoid of reason.

    This will not be repaired politely.

    Demand an exemption from their property taxes that pay for high school sports. Even if it’s just $20 a year, demand it. Then get the tens of thousands of parents that home-school their children to file for the same exemption. When that 20 bux becomes big money, they’ll think twice about excluding the home-schooled kids.
