1. Hawaii Elementary School Ignores Law

When the Aliamanu Elementary School in Honolulu, Hawaii, requested
far more than the law requires, Home School Legal Defense Association
defended our member family's right to home school free from
government harassment.

2. Wisconsin Connections Academy: A Trojan Horse

A proposed charter school is offering home schoolers across the state
a long list of "free" benefits, but participants face significant
trade-offs, including a change in the status of their children from
privately home schooled students to public school students. Slated
for an official vote by the Appleton School Board in the next few
months, Wisconsin Connections Academy (WCA) is expected to open its
doors this fall. HSLDA encourages our members to carefully examine
all the facts before signing up with WCA.

3. South Dakota Keeps Spanking Legal

Spanking remains legal in South Dakota despite diligent efforts by
those who would have turned reasonable disciplinary action into
felony child abuse.

4. California District Demands Unauthorized Information

A Chino Valley District official's letter to home schoolers
overstepped the law, demanding "proof" of parents' teaching
credentials and suggesting that "smaller" schools might be operating
illegally. HSLDA wrote the district, explaining that California law
does not require this information, nor does it make any distinction
between private schools based on size. To date, the families have not
heard back from the district.
