Update: What’s Wrong with the Department of Education Forms?

by Scott Woodruff • July 24, 2019

The Department of Education has rectified some of its errors that I pointed out on June 25. But since important errors remain, we continue to recommend that families not use the state’s form or the state’s online filing system.

Here are the errors that remain.

  1. The Department continues to demand every child’s birth date, though state law only requires age.
  2. The Department continues to demand that families identify a specific school year, though state law does not require this.
  3. The Department’s online system continues to refer to filing a notice as “registering a child.”
  4. The Department continues to snowball the initial notice of intent into the subsequent year letter, although they are separate and different under state law.

You can help the cause of freedom by submitting only what is required under state law.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!
