Idaho--Anti-Homeschool Bill Defeated


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

A victory for Idaho homeschoolers! Senator Joe Stegner has withdrawn
Senate Bill 1233 after homeschoolers in Idaho rose up to express
their opposition to the bill. The entire senate concurred in his
motion.

Some senate offices received over 600 emails in the space of two
weeks from homeschoolers opposing the bill. Withdrawing the bill is
the "simple recognition that this bill is divisive," said Sen.
Stegner. "It has generated more animosity than I ever anticipated."

Credit goes to Idaho Coalition of Home Educators for spearheading the
opposition and to HSLDA members who took time out of their busy
schedules to contact their senators about the bill.

Thank you for your efforts for freedom!

Sincerely,


Chris Klicka
Senior Counsel
Home School Legal Defense Association
