Missouri--SB 968--Stop Calls for Now


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Despite the best efforts of Missouri homeschoolers, and the many phone
calls you have made to get our message across, it appears there is no
longer a realistic chance to defeat SB 968 or remove the language that
will allow St. Louis to raise the age of compulsory attendance.

The compulsory age provision is only one small part of SB 968. The
bill as a whole appears to have overwhelming support in the
legislature.

HSLDA opposes any increase in the compulsory attendance age because it
reduces the freedom of parents to choose what is best for their
children. With God's help, nearly every bill proposing to expand the
age of compulsory attendance that HSLDA members have opposed across
the nation has gone down to defeat. Our decision to recommend that
calls be stopped in this case does not mark a change in our vision.
We will continue to fight every new bill that seeks to expand
government control over our children through expanding the compulsory
attendance age.

Nonetheless, since a victory for freedom no longer appears possible in
this specific instance, we feel compelled to recommend that calls be
discontinued at this time.

Please check your email frequently. Tomorrow is the last day of the
legislative session. If anything occurs to change our assessment, we
will let you know at once.

Thank you for all you have done to help protect freedom in Missouri.


Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
