How Do Homeschooling Regulations Measure Up?

About 3.4 percent of American students are homeschooled these days, but in states like Kansas and Missouri, homeschoolers get little -- if any -- oversight from any authority. It's up to parents to decide on what and how to teach, and that worries those who think it may be time for some level of regulation. 

Guests:

  • Dr. Robert Kunzman, managing director for the International Center for Home Education Research 
  • Kyle Palmer, KCUR reporter
  • Scott Woodruff, senior counsel for the Home School Legal Defense Association

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
