Homeschooling Follow Up

For more evidence of homeschooling's growing popularity and acceptance, I offer the following:

"The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) passed new scholarship eligibility guidelines on July 14, 2009. Homeschooled applicants for the Virginia Guaranteed Assistance Program may now submit SAT scores of 900 and above and ACT scores of 19 and above as an alternative to a homeschool GPA."

After years of being unjustly discriminated against, homeschoolers now share the same access to these funds as do other school children in Virginia. Does this mean the state is guilty of encouraging child abuse?
