The state of Virginia failed to pass the Tim "Tebow bill" this week, according to the Washington Post.

Opponents, including some school boards and PTAs, say home-schooled kids would not be required to meet the same academic criteria as public school athletes — attend and pass five classes per day — and that they would have taken team slots from their public school counterparts.
