Senate Bill 2221: Prohibiting Homeschool Students from Receiving Particular College Grants
Senator Bill Stone
This bill would require that homeschool students receiving a Mississippi Resident Tuition Assistance Grant or a Mississippi Eminent Scholars Grant be graduates of an “accredited” home instruction program. Home instruction programs in Mississippi are not accredited, nor is there any procedure for them to become accredited. This bill would effectively prohibit homeschoolers from receiving these grants for college expenses.
