House of Delegates advances so-called Tebow bill

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — A House bill that would allow home-schooled students to play in public school sports moves forward.

The House of Delegates passed the so-called Tebow Bill on Thursday.

The proposed measure is named after Tim Tebow, the pro-football player who was home-schooled, but allowed to play on a public high school team.

Tebow eventually went on to win the Heisman trophy while attending the University of Florida.

Critics of the plan say it’s unfair because home-schooled students aren’t subject to the same academic standards as public school students.

The Senate is poised to take up the measure, but it died in that chamber last year.
