Vermont--Progress in Vermont


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thank you for your calls to the legislature! We have received word
that House Bill 560, the homeschool driver education bill, will not
be acted upon this year. That is disappointing, but only in the
short term. Iowa homeschoolers spent eight years working on this
issue, and have finally pushed their homeschool drivers bill through
that legislature. The Vermont legislature is still concerned with
homeschool freedom, but not quite ready for change this year.

The Governor, on the other hand, has been much more receptive.
Governor Douglas has proclaimed that the fourth week of April shall
henceforth be "Home Education Week," and that the fourth Thursday of
every April shall be "Home Education Awareness Day."

The text of the Governor's proclamation is available at:

Sincerely,

Scott W. Somerville, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
