LISTEN NOW! WATCH FULL PROGRAM! As many watched the journey of Tim Tebow from his collegiate career with the Florida Gators, to his arrival to the NFL with the Denver Broncos, as well as his commentating career, some may not be aware of his beginnings before making it to the University of Florida. In his high school years, Tebow was home schooled. Because of the local laws, he could participate in the local public school’s athletics. But, for current home school athletes in Virginia, it appears that prospective athletes must wait for another year to possibly participate in public school athletics.
According to CBN News, “Gov. Terry McAuliffe, D-Va. has vetoed the so-called “Tebow bill,” which would overturn a state ban on home-school students participating in high school sports and other interscholastic activities.” Governor McAuliffe continues further expresses that passing the bill “would disrupt the level playing field Virginia’s public schools have developed over the past century”.
We are seeing a new turn in education in America with the election of Betsy DeVos as the chairwoman of the Department of Education. Because of her experience with home schools and charter schools, as well as her desire to allow the decisions of how to best educate students to be placed in the hands of the parents, and not in the hands of the teachers, all of this may be changing. Hear the full story to learn more about this bill, Tim Tebow’s actions in the Cactus League, Cam Newton’s “DAB” and so much more. Greg and Steve shared in this segment.
