NUMBER 178 THE NEWSPAPER OF EDUCATION RIGHTS NOVEMBER 2000

House Supports Homeschoolers
Rep. Bob Schaffer
WASHINGTON, DC - On Sept. 26, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a resolution in support of home-schooling introduced by Congressman Bob Schaffer (R-CO). The text reads: "Congratulating home educators and homeschooled students across the nation for their ongoing contributions to education and for the role they play in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for this nation, and for other purposes."

Following the vote, Schaffer said: "Home educators and students have produced positive results. I'm proud to recognize parents and children who have pioneered this type of education." He praised homeschoolers for scoring highest on the ACT three years in a row and for scoring highest on the SAT this year. He noted that homeschooled students dominated the 2000 Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee (See Education Reporter, July 2000) by taking the top three positions in the prestigious event.

A member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, Schaffer added that he is "delighted to honor home school education and will continue to support the effort."
