Extractions: This bill would authorize the Arkansas State Board of Education to issue rules, regulations, and guidelines to ensure that homeschool students receive a "quality education." This subjective standard would inevitably result in oppressive state oversight of homeschooling. Whatever the State Board of Education thought was good for homeschoolers would be imposed on them. The authority of the State Board would be completely unrestrained under the law.

Citizens acting on behalf of the Lake View School District in Phillips County said "No!" in 1992 and filed a lawsuit that says the State of Arkansas is not providing a general, suitable, and efficient system of public education that is good enough and fair enough for our children. The courts have agreed and the decision now lies with Arkansas' highest court - the State Supreme Court. Because the Arkansas Constitution says it is the legislature's responsibility to provide a fair and equal education, our lawmakers passed Act 1398, An Act to Create a Blue Ribbon Commission on Public Education , in the 2001 legislative session in hopes of avoiding a very likely possibility that our education system will be declared unconstitutional. The Commission is made up of 25 Arkansas citizens and six legislators who are charged with addressing our serious educational problems and proposing solutions to them.

Parents cannot place students directly into the program, nor can they request placement; it is the decision of the hearing officer. This program is for special education student who have created challenges for themselves or others at their base school. This program serves sixth through twelfth grade students who are identified as needing special education services but cannot attend their base school due to behavior or disciplinary reasons. The Special Education Division makes all placements into this program, parents do not have the option to place their child into this program.
