Missouri Residents Call to Action!!!

All Missouri residents please be aware!!!:

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 – Call your Missouri State Representative:

 Action Needed: Call your Missouri state representative asking him/her to oppose HB 2336, Show Me Good Grades Act, sponsored by Representative Joshua Peters.

Look up your Representative: http://www.house.mo.gov/legislatorlookup.aspx

Bill Activity History – HB 2336

1/21/16 Introduced and Read First Time

1/25/16 Read Second Time

2/10/16 referred to Special Committee on Urban Issues (H)

2/15/16 Special Committee on Urban Issues – Did not hear

2/22/16 –Special Committee on Urban Issues –  Hearing scheduled for Monday, February 22nd

HB 2336, Show Me Good Grades would give the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) authority over all Missouri students applying for a Missouri driver license by setting grade qualifications which would be required in order for a 15-18 year old student to apply for an operator’s license or permit.

This would put home schoolers in a precarious position. DESE’s authority should remain limited to public education only. They should not be granted authority or control over nonpublic students or who can have driving privileges.

Sincerely,

Al and Sheryl Schmidt for the FHE Board
