I was wondering the other day about whether or not home school/private school students are accessing the SoB. I did a quick review of a few state regs and saw that some states say it is available to “high school graduates” which would seem to imply that they could. I also noticed some states that said it was for “public school students” which seems odd to me since they are children of taxpayers (especially since it would seem that many of the students are native speakers and not necessarily using state resources (teachers) for language acquisition.
My other thought is who is advocating for these students if not you as State supervisors. Love to hear what’s going on in your state. If these students CAN get a SoB, the next question is do they know about it and are they receiving it.
