Ohio--Columbus Public Schools Violate Privacy-Again!


July 12, 2004


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Year after year, the Columbus Public Schools distributes a collection
of forms called the "Home Schooling Application Packet." This
document is riddled with problems, beginning with the name
(homeschoolers do not "apply" for "permission" to teach their own
children in Ohio), to their demand for a social security number for
each student. HSLDA has repeatedly advised Columbus that it is in
violation of the Federal Privacy Act of 1974, with no response. We
are now preparing to take additional action to change Columbus's
procedures.

Please forward this e-mail to any homeschoolers you know in the
Columbus area. We would appreciate any input from families who
actually live in the school district before we take action.


Sincerely,

Scott W. Somerville, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

There's not much you can get for 27 cents a day. Why not put your
money toward peace of mind for yourself and your family?
