Alaska update... Daryl over at Homeschool & Other Education Stuff has a nice write-up on a new house bill in Alaska to "require all Alaskan school-age children to carry a tracking number that would enable the state to ensure every child is receiving an education."

The homeschool community once again got the phones ringing in response to Alaska House Bill 437 and "Carl Gatto, who chairs the House Special Committee on Education, said his office had to prepare a canned response. Gatto also said Chenault indicated that he may withdraw the bill in the future."

The editorial Daryl is blogging on can be found here. The actual text of the bill can be found here. To see a list of the Representatives to contact on the House Special committee on Education visit here.
