Homeschoolers Banned From Even Applying For Jobs
This is unreal. Where are the civil right leaders to march against this discrimination?
Check it out:
An Indiana-based company has decided not to hire any homeschool graduates, withdrawing a job offer from one candidate after discovering he was home educated, according to the Home School Legal Defense Association.
That’s despite the fact that assessments and evaluations for homeschool students routinely run higher than for public-school students.
HSLDA spokesman Michael Donnelly said NiSource, an energy-distribution company, informed HSLDA it would not hire homeschool graduates.
The decision was based on the company’s interpretation of state law.
Donnelly said he was told by NiSource legal counsel Adele O’Connor that the company “disagrees with the conclusions in your letter as to the legal requirements regarding a diploma,” established in Chapter 3313 of the Ohio Revised Code.
Donnelly, argued, however, that the section applies to public and chartered private schools, not homeschools.
“NiSource is wrongly using Ohio law as an excuse to defend its discriminatory hiring policy,” Donnelly said. “There is simply no legal impediment to NiSource hiring a homeschool graduate – especially the one in question here.”
