1. Kentucky's Proposed Regulations Gain Support

Once again, the state legislature is considering a bill to
dramatically increase home schooling regulations including home
visits from the local truancy officer and annual testing. HSLDA and
other home school support organizations in Kentucky are together
vigorously opposing any changes.

2. Washington State Law Would Stampede Parents' Rights

House Bill 2322 would permit any person, even someone not related to
a child by blood or marriage, to have visitation rights with the
child under certain conditions. The bill's premise is that a minor
child has an "interest in maintaining significant relationships with
nonparents," even over the objections of his or her parents.

rebuts the myth that big government can provide more accountability
and produce better results than dedicated, loving parents who choose
to teach their children at home.
