Tim Tebow Mania is sweeping the south, including of all places, Alabama. House bill No. 440 — nicknamed the Tim Tebow Bill — is currently working its way through the Alabama legislature.  The bill calls for allowing home-schooled students equal access to sports and extracurricular activities at public schools.

The bill is named after Tebow who is the Florida Gators All-Star QB because he was a home-schooled student who played football at Florida's Nease High. A bill similar to the Alabama measure was passed in Florida in 1996, clearing the way for Tebow and other home-schoolers to play for public high schools.

    Craig and Brenda Dickinson in Tallahassee were responsible for getting this legislation passed in Florida. Craig Dickinson passed away a few years later but his wife Brenda continues to fight for home educators rights in Florida.

    Either allow home schooled children to participate in public school activities or give their parents a waiver from paying any taxes for education.

    I know, people without children or people with children either too old or too young to attend public school have to pay taxes for education. The difference is, they are not being denied any public services available to others.
