- Engaged in extensive discussions with the Chancellor's office regarding the new admissions standards for students who are not graduates of accredited programs; we've prepared the only analyses of the new test score requirements; we've met with the Chancellor;
- Testified before the House Education Committee on HB586; prepared a detailed analysis of HB586;
- Provided opinion and recommendations regarding SB412;
- Encouraged the creation of a coalition to deal with the USG admissions problem;

Our goal is to be viewed as a valuable source of information, both by the
homeschooling community, and by government officials and agencies.
