Student’s Home-Schooling Highlights Debate Over Va. Religious Exemption Law 

Judges’ Comments

Beautifully and sensitively written, thoughtful, even-handed explanation of an issue that has gotten virtually no attention – it had never occurred to me that home school students themselves should be given a choice about their education.”

“Wonderfully written. Kudos to the reporter for gaining access and treating her subjects with respect and dignity.”

EWA is grateful to the College Board for its generous support of the 2016 National Awards for Education Reporting.
