Homeschool Equal Access Bill (S.841-Robach/A.43-Simanowitz)

The purpose of this bill is to prevent homeschooled students and students from nonpublic schools from being subjected to unfair treatment. Neither homeschooled students nor students from non-public schools should be required to obtain GEDs in order to be admitted to colleges or universities. Furthermore, a student who has been admitted to a college or a university should not be required to obtain a GED before being allowed to graduate from that college or university. Therefore, New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms urges Members of the Legislature to support this measure.
