Pennsylvania--Please Attend April 15 Home School Rally

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

April 12, 2002

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

For a long time, home schoolers in Pennsylvania have struggled under
the current home school law. We at HSLDA represent hundreds of
families each year who are challenged by superintendents misapplying
this cumbersome home school statute. Now we have the opportunity to
significantly roll back these controls through legislation that is
expected to be introduced by April 15.

Meanwhile, a home school rally and lobbying day will take place on
April 15, 2002 and HSLDA attorney Dewitt Black will be speaking.

We urge you to attend this important rally in order to show the
Pennsylvania legislature that home schooling works and that you have
earned the right to be left alone. A large turnout is crucial to make
an impact.

I just returned from New York, where 1,200 home schoolers attended a
rally at the capitol in favor of a home school bill that will end 75%
of the state's regulation on home schoolers. The families also
lobbied the entire legislature helping move the home school bill
forward. Pennsylvanians should be able to match this attendance on
Monday in Harrisburg!


We urge you to attend the "Rally in the Rotunda" on April 15 in
Harrisburg as home educators from all over the commonwealth let the
legislature know the benefits of home education. The rally is set
10:30am to 12:30pm.

For information on the rally, directions to the capitol, parking
suggestions, overnight accommodations, and a list of ways you can
help, see this informative website:
