AHEM’s position on federal homeschooling legislation
AHEM’s philosophy is to strengthen the grassroots presence of homeschoolers, as our voices are strongest at the local and state level. It follows that it is wise to keep home-schooling out of federal law as much as possible to avoid further regulation and to keep the local, grassroots strength of homeschooling alive.

Legislative Issues

State legislation that could affect homeschoolers in Massachusetts.

Legislative Update – February 2019

The Massachusetts Legislature began its 191st session on January 2, 2019. The various bills that AHEM tracked in the 190th session, regarding changes to the compulsory attendance age and other educational issues, have either died or been set aside for further study in the new session. The 191st Legislature had a deadline of January 18, 2019 to file its most important bills in order to ensure that the Legislature will consider those bills during the current session. New bills may be filed after the deadline, but there is no guarantee that the Legislature will have time to address such bills. AHEM will continue to track new bills as they are filed in the 191st session and keep our members informed of any that may affect homeschoolers in Massachusetts.
