The “Tim Tebow” bill that is making its way through the legislature is being discussed heavily across the state of West Virginia.
If put into law, it would allow homeschooled kids to play on school athletic teams.
It overwhelmingly passed in the Senate earlier this week.
Coaches and athletic directors have mixed feelings about the bill. Some homeschool parents think this law would have a positive impact on homeschooled and traditional-schooled kids both.
“It really opens up a door for positive opportunity. And not every homeschool family is going to run out, and sign up, and try out, and embrace the opportunity, but to have it there is just really wonderful,” said Lisa Gadd.
The bill should be discussed and voted on by the House of Delegates sometime next week.
