Texas Coaches Thwart Home-School Bill

Andy Berg Headshot

Coaches and athletic directors in Texas were busy calling their state representatives to stop proposed legislation that would have made it easier for home-schooled kids to participate in sports.

Rep. James Frank (R-Austin) had introduced House Bill 1324, which would have created equal opportunity access for home-schooled students, allowing them to participate in athletic or academic events “on behalf of the school in the same manner that the school provides the opportunity to participate to students enrolled in the school.”

The Texas High School Coaches Association urged coaches and athletic directors to contact their representatives to express opposition to the bill, and it worked. In a social media post, the THSCA wrote: ‘They have removed HB 1324 from consideration and WILL NOT EVEN be bringing it to a vote,’ along with the hashtags #YourVoiceIsStrong #UnitedForCoaches and #THSCAstrong.
