|House Supports Homeschoolers|
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."
