Kansas State Board of Education members discussed last week whether the state needs to look more closely at home schooling. Board chairman David Dennis of Wichita said that he has heard from public school principals about situations in which parents keep teenagers home to care for other children but claim they are being home schooled. Dennis wondered if the state needed to increase reporting requirements for home schoolers, but some other members wanted more information and feedback before recommending action. They plan to discuss the issue again at their September meeting.
