Extractions: February 5, 2003 Maine Homeschoolers Fight Against Repressive Regulations Maine Legislative Document 160 would create a new homeschool option free of the needless restrictions the Department of Education has imposed through its rules. The bill would allow home schoolers to breathe freely after 20 years of stifling micromanagement. This new legislation would be an amazing improvement for Maine's homeschooling families. Under these new requirements, parents would only be required to provide a notice to the Commissioner of Education 14 days before the beginning of the home instruction program. The notice must contain the parent's name, signature address, the child's name and age, the date home instruction will begin, assurance that 175 days of instruction will be provided in the required subjects (same as currently required). Parents must send a letter to the Commissioner before September 1 every year thereafter, stating whether they intend to continue home education for the child.

Extractions: Chapter 7 - When Things Aren't Going Well Using the Guide Index Introduction Chapter 7 Parents are often confused about who qualifies as an advocate and what an advocate's role is, as compared to the role of a lawyer. Ideally, an advocate is someone with specialized training in special education and Maine State Education Regulations (MSER). An advocate should be able to help identify the key issues, understand how they relate to special education law, and support the parent in articulating those points. Some advocates have formal legal training; many do not. Some advocates volunteer their services, while others charge a fee for their time. FMI See MSER 111 13.4 p. 81. Lawyers are trained legal experts. Most lawyers focus their law practice on a specific branch of law (i.e. corporate law, criminal law, labor law, family law, etc.). If you are seeking the services of a lawyer to assist you in dispute resolution, it is wise to ask what level of experience they have in special education law. MDOE contracts with an organization of trained individuals who function as mediators, complaint investigators and hearing officers. Some individuals work only as mediators, while others serve as hearing officers or complaint investigators. As stated previously, each one will vary in their own style. They may also vary in their approach to the process employed in each setting.

Home School Access Law permission to post this article at this website given by the author Many of us have been homeschooling for years under Maine's Chapter 130, the rules for equivalent instruction through home instruction. We are a very diverse group, and it has been possible for us to practice home education without the state requiring that we conform to any single educational model or method. Homeschoolers have asserted their need to choose the educational approach that is most suitable for their unique situations, and the state has not objected to a relatively wide interpretation of the provisions of Chapter 130. It would be difficult to attempt a description of all the approaches to learning that can fit under the term home education. Furthermore, since home education is not merely another academic method, it cannot be classified or explained solely in academic terminology. Home education is about education, but it is also about meaning, about personal convictions, and about the comedy and drama of family life.
