The Dana Show in St Louis had an interview with Senator Maloney today.
This part was disturbing in Senator Maloney’s review of this past week:
Maloney – Those who came to the Capitol were extremely courteous and professional. what precipitated this was an acquaintance of mine was homeschooling..I was interested in the logistics of it and I was surprised to find no rules or regulations in this state. I thought for protection of those kids who aren’t getting an education that we ought to know where those kids are. Since the hearing, I realized some had issues of privacy with this along with the logistics. Last couple of days I’ve been meeting with representatives of the homeschool community, school board representatives, isbe, superintendents.”
The Illinois Review
It appears the celebration about SB 136 being tabled today may be short-lived. The sponsor is still determined to find a way to account for those slippery homeschoolers in Illinois, the ones that could “slip through the cracks,” as one legislator warned at Tuesday’s hearing. Why do we think that?
State Senator Ed Maloney was featured today on Dana Loesch’s St. Louis talk show and during the last minute of the interview, here’s what was said:
Dana asked the question: “Will this legislation go away?
Maloney responded with “”SB 136 has gone away. We will have a discussion relative to, primarily the truancy issue and how we can identify that and ah with all parties involved and hopefully we can come up some way ah some ah fashioning some sort of legislation that will be able to identify those students without invading anybody’s privacy”
