Virginia--Homeschool Bill Hearing Tomorrow


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The homeschool bill, HB 675, will be heard before the full Senate
Education Committee tomorrow, February 19. This Committee is chaired
by homeschool supporter, state Senator Russ Potts. Based on the
number of commitments so far, we hope to have at least 8 favorable
votes out the 15-committee members.

Please come and show your support. The hearing will be held at
approximately 8:30AM in Senate Room B of the General Assembly
Building. Chris Klicka of HSLDA is scheduled to testify.

We drafted HB 675 to end Virginia's baccalaureate degree requirement.
If passed, this bill will allow families to homeschool, regardless of
the parent's level of education. No longer will it be necessary to
seek discretionary approval from the local superintendent or comply
with state standards of learning! This bill will bring Virginia up to
speed with 48 other states that allow parents with a high school
diploma or less to teach their children at home.

It will also end the harassment some families without college degrees
have faced from school districts.

Thank you for all your calls to help us get this far!


Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
Senior Counsel
Home School Legal Defense Association
