1. Victory for California Homeschoolers

We are pleased to announce that because of the behind-the-scenes hard
work, detailed research, diplomacy, networking, and strategizing by
Roy Hanson and Jim Davis of Family Protection Ministries, a major
legislative victory has occurred for all private homeschoolers in
California. HSLDA assisted FPM by providing legal counsel.

2. Washington Times Op-ed--The Right Incentives Matter

high quality citizens, while other systems fall short of this ideal.

3. Must Homeschoolers Provide a Public Education?

Massachusetts-When Brendan Flask [not his real name] was 9 years old,
he couldn't stand to go to public school. The family tried a number of
ways to resolve these problems, and finally decided to start
homeschooling in December 2003. Little did they know their homeschool
proposal would be rejected because it failed to provide a "free
appropriate public education."

4. Regulation of Homeschooling Recommended by Wisconsin State Journal

We believe that these types of articles are dangerous to the freedoms
of homeschoolers since they may encourage legislators to pursue
homeschool regulations.

5. Attacks on German Homeschoolers Continue

German homeschoolers continue to face harassment for homeschooling.
However, because of the generosity of American homeschoolers, the
fight continues.
