The new NCFCA resolutions involve some highly important and relevant discussions – particularly on the policy side. Regardless of which topic ends up winning, I think debaters will have plenty of great debates for both TP and LD. Here’s my opinion on which ones are best (spoilers: LD B & TP B), and why you should vote for them." (Remember to vote by June 8, Wednesday!)

Isaac Sommers commented on a post on Blogger.
Hi Sarah!

This bill will require school districts to allow home school students to try out for UIL access – it will not allow district-by-district discrimination any longer.

The testing requirement only applies to students whose parents choose to let them try out for UIL – and even then, the test is chosen by the parent, not the state, and administered by a third-party, not the state. This in no way affects the curriculum a parent chooses to home school their child with, any more than taking the SAT or ACT before applying to a college affects one’s curriculum.

While a parent will have to submit a letter stating their child is passing their classes, this only applies if they choose to participate in UIL – if a family doesn’t want to submit that letter for any reason, they are not required to participate. This benefits the families who need this, and doesn’t apply to the families who don’t want this.

THSC certainly supports home school sports and extracurriculars, but we also support educational choice for parents, and parents should be able to choose UIL as an option if they feel that’s what’s best for their child. This bill has not caused restrictions and monitoring in any of the 29 states that have passed this law.

If you have concerns with the specific language of the bill, please let us know and we will be happy to address those!
