HSLDA has received questions about what to expect for homeschool freedom with a Democratic president and legislature. While we can’t predict exactly what will happen over the next couple years, we do know that the Democrat party is heavily supportive of public education and receives substantial support from the National Education Association (NEA).

If it were up to the NEA, homeschooling wouldn’t exist. The NEA has drafted a resolution stating that homeschoolers should have to meet all state curricular requirements, including taking assessments; homeschool teachers (i.e., parents) should be certified by the state; and no funding should go to benefit any form of home education. However, the NEA has not put any substantial effort into taking on homeschooling. If that changes, it will likely be in the form of model bills proposed in targeted states.
