New York--Home School Rally in Albany! Update on S.B. 4767

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

April 5, 2002

Dear New York Members and Friends,

This is to remind you of the importance of attending the Home School
Rally hosted by New York's home schooling organization Loving
Education at Home (LEAH). If you want to help reduce the home school
regulations by 75%, your labor is VITAL.

We urge you to attend the LEAH Rally on Wednesday, April 10, 2002.
The rally will start at 1:00 p.m. sharp on the capitol steps in
Albany and will include HSLDA Senior Counsel Chris Klicka as speaker.
A strong showing is crucial for passing S.B. 4767.

Calls are also needed to urge the New York Assembly Education
Committee members to attend the rally.


1. Call as many members of the Assembly Education Committee (listed
below) as you can and give them the following message:

"Please attend a home school rally at 1:00 on Wednesday, April 10,
2002 at the capitol steps in support of Senate Bill 4767. Please vote
for S.B. 4767, which will relieve public school officials and home
schooling parents from burdensome administrative tasks. Home
educators have earned the right to regulatory relief after
demonstrating their success under the current law for the past 14

2) Pray that God would influence the hearts of the Senate and
Assembly members to vote in favor of S.B. 4767.

3) We urge you to make time to attend this rally. Bring your family
and make a field trip out of this lobbying opportunity.
