TC's Luis Huerta Tells ProPublica That Homeschooling Data Could Help Draw "Empirical ​C​onclusions ​T​hat I​nfluence ​Policy​"

TC’s Luis Huerta, associate professor of education and public policy, is quoted in a ProPublica story about the Home School Legal Defense Association, a legal advocacy organization that opposes home school regulation. Huerta said he is in favor of a proposal from a rival organization, the Coalition for Responsible Home Education (CRHE), to promote data collection that would help in evaluating and standardizing home schooling.

Huerta also says he’s fascinated by the group’s emergence. “Never have we had this strong of a group who are advocates [of homeschooling] and who are also demanding that we have information from which to be able to draw empirical conclusions that influence policy decisions," he said. “This can potentially change the landscape.”​
