Virginia--Three Public School Districts 'Reach Out' to Homeschoolers


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The school boards of three heavily populated Northern Virginia
Counties--Loudoun, Prince William, and Fairfax--have recently adopted
policies allowing homeschool students to take a limited number of
classes at the local public school.

Many parents want to use education resources outside the home,
especially in the high school years. HSLDA supports parents'
fundamental right to choose the education that is best for their
child. However, we strongly urge families to choose private home
education. Keep in mind that whatever choice you use to meet your
family's needs, you strengthen.

If you turn to the private homeschool community to meet your needs,
you strengthen the homeschool community. If you turn to the compulsory
education system, you strengthen the compulsory education system.

Many resources are now available to homeschool parents including co-op
classes, on line classes, private school classes, community college
and 4-year college classes. These options have expanded because of
increased demand from homeschool parents. All of these options are
outside the compulsory education system.

For those parents who are religiously motivated, it's clear that the
public school environment cannot accommodate your beliefs, and, in
some cases, will be hostile.

This is a critical decision and should not be made lightly. We urge
you to consider all the issues and, of course, seek God's counsel
through prayer.


Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
