20 Jul: Weinberg To Introduce Measure To Ensure Greater Oversight Of Home-Schooling

TRENTON – Senator Loretta Weinberg said today that she plans to introduce legislation once the Senate reconvenes to ensure greater oversight and regulation of home-schooling in New Jersey, in order to ensure children receive a decent education and go for an annual medical check-up.

“Parents are within their rights if they choose to home-school their kids, but those kids shouldn’t lose out for that decision,” said Senator Weinberg, D-Bergen. “Whether kids receive their education in the traditional school setting or at home, they should be getting a decent education, and should get an annual medical check-up. This bill is about protecting kids and making sure that they have the building blocks for success later in life.”
