Libraries up for adoption?
=====================================================================
It's easy to adopt a library! Unlike most adoptions, no home-study is
required. For a tax-deductible donation of $35, we'll send you an
attractive poster and display box filled with 150 You Can Homeschool
brochures, along with five homeschooling classics that we're able to
include at our cost. The kit will be your gift to the library. And
when the brochures run out, there's a number on the box they can call
to order more-for free.

1. Washington Times Op-ed -- Homeschooling Strengthens Families and
Communities

A recent headline in the Dallas Morning News stated "Despite good
schools, more kids learning at home." The parents quoted in the
article live in Los Rios, a wealthy suburb of Plano, Texas. They
didn't have a negative word to say about their local public schools.
So why would these parents decide to homeschool if they already had
good schools right on their doorstep?

2. Governor Warner Amends Homeschool Freedom Bill

Governor Warner's convoluted amendment is unacceptable, so we are
urging everyone to call their Delegate and Senator to kill Warner's
amendment when it comes to a vote this Wednesday.

3. Homeschool Software Testers Needed

An educational software development company, Hunter Systems, has
spent the last couple of years developing an all-in-one homeschool
management system designed to help the "homeschool office manager" in
your home succeed--and get on with the business of teaching. Before
they launch their product, they'd like 50 HSLDA members to give them
some input based on "real world" experience. Interested?
