Iowa--Calls Needed Immediately For Driver's Education Bill

We need your help! We learned late yesterday that the driver's
education bill, House File (HF) 2394 is coming up for a vote in the
Iowa senate on Wednesday. We also learned that teacher's unions are
gearing up their full machinery to try to defeat this bill.

Can ordinary mothers and fathers who love their children and are
dedicated to freedom prevail against the powerful teachers unions?
Absolutely yes! They have done it in state after state. Now it is
Iowa's turn. But we need the help of every HSLDA Member in Iowa.

Action Requested:

1. Call your state senator today or early tomorrow. Your message can
be as simple as,

"Please vote in favor of HF 2394. It will allow parents to teach
driver education to their homeschooled children. Statistics show that
lives are saved and accidents are prevented when homeschool parents
teach driver's education to their own children."

Use our legislative toolbox at if you do
not know who your senator is. Call (515) 281-3371 to leave a message
for your senator.

2. Call at least two homeschool families and ask them to call their

3. Pray. God is mighty and often works in ways we cannot see.

Reasons to Support HF 2394:

1. According to a statistical study by students at the University of
Colorado-Colorado Springs, injuries and deaths were dramatically
lower for teens who learned to drive using a homeschool driver
education program. The number of accidents and tickets was also
dramatically lower.

2. Homeschool students are frequently turned away from public school
driver education classes because the classes are full.

3. Public school driver education courses are expensive, and getting
more expensive.

4. No professional driver or teacher cares as much about your child
as you do. Parent taught driver education is highly successful
because of highly individualized attention, flexible scheduling,
parent-child interaction, and greater opportunity for accountability.

5. The Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators and HSLDA fully
support this bill.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

Sincerely yours,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
