I was forwarded an article about a proposed Michigan law that would require homeschoolers to register. To me, registering any group of people generally leads to their mistreatment in the not to distant future. It is rather like disarming them.
In Michigan, HB5912, introduced by state Rep. Brenda Clack, seems to be a logical compromise. It does not interfere with a parent's right to homeschool, but merely requires parents to register. Where the bill goes wrong is in requiring them to register with their already overburdened school district. The registration should be handled by the state.
