A force to be reckoned with

The January 1992 issue of The School Administrator ran two articles on home schooling. In a discussion regarding the education establishment's desire to provide "assistance" to home schoolers through supervision and home visits, Mary Beach, the associate superintendent of curriculum and instruction for Richland County School District 1 in Columbia, S.C., is quoted as saying: "Our application has to parallel the state law… The Home School Legal Defense Association will be on us in a minute if we do anything to enrich the education of these children."

After reading Mary Beach's comment, Mike Farris responded: "HSLDA has arrived at the status the ACLU worked years to achieve! That report, printed in a magazine which is read by every school administrator in the United States, will assist our ability to represent families all over the nation. Schools will have a healthy fear of our willingness to apply legal resources to defending the freedoms of home schooling families."
