New Jersey: Homeschool Vouchers Neither Wanted nor Needed

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

An organization is circulating petitions to support vouchers that
would allow parents to use money gathered through tax collection to
fund various forms of education, including homeschooling.

During the twenty years Home School Legal Defense Association has been
in operation, we have seen homeschooling grow dramatically and we have
seen homeschooled children distinguish themselves in every field of
endeavor. This has happened without government assistance of any sort
whatsoever, and frequently in the face of government opposition.

History teaches us that government money and increased governmental
burdens go together. Our analysis also shows that increased
governmental burdens do not, however, help homeschooled children.
Children in states with the most burdensome homeschool requirements
score no better on standardized tests than children in states with the
least burdensome requirements.

Because of this, HSLDA has consistently opposed government-funded
vouchers for homeschoolers. Vouchers will encourage erosion of
freedom. Money is not fair compensation for losing liberty.

If you are invited to sign a petition, read it carefully. If it
supports vouchers for homeschoolers, I urge you to not sign it.

Sincerely,


Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
