Maryland--Compulsory Attendance Bill Withdrawn


Dear Maryland HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for your phone calls-they had an impact! Yesterday the
sponsor of SB 618 withdrew his bill. The bill would have raised the
compulsory attendance age in Maryland from 16 to 18.

At approximately 12:30 PM yesterday, I filed written testimony
against the bill and signed up to testify. Manfred Smith of Maryland
Home Education Association also signed up to testify. The Maryland
Department of Education opposed the bill and filed written testimony.

At 3:00 PM, the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs
Committee convened and announced the bill had been withdrawn.

Christian Home Educators Network and Maryland Association of
Christian Home Educators also worked to oppose this bill.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!


Sincerely yours,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
