Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

THSC Brain Fart?

Filed under: Homeschooling — texased @ 6:47 pm

Tim Lambert of THSC usually does a good job on writing letters to public schools on behalf of homeschoolers but what was he thinking on this one? The family was applying to a private school.

THSC Letter to Father Yermo:

According to them, officials at your school told them they must present an official transcript with a seal from an accredited school.

The private school has established it’s requirements but Tim is telling them that the state doesn’t get to regulate private schools?

THSC Letter to Father Yermo:

the state of Texas has determined that home schools are unaccredited private schools and that students in home schools are, therefore, exempt from the compulsory attendance statute. In addition, the state does not regulate, monitor, or have oversight of private schools—including home schools. Therefore, the parents are the officials of the home school, and you should accept the transcript from their school as the official document for the student.

The only explanation that I can think of is that this is a form letter that is generated whenever they enter a complaint about a school into a database. Of course, I wonder what the TEA officials and SBOE member are going to think of THSC upon receiving this letter.
