North Dakota--Calls Needed to Pass Positive Homeschool Legislation


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The House Education Committee has amended House Bill 1265 and
unanimously recommended a "do pass" as amended.

The Committee amendments do not preserve any of the favorable changes
sought in the original bill. Nonetheless, HSLDA supports the
Committee's amendment since they will change the law to permit parents
to homeschool their developmentally disabled children under the same
conditions that autistic children are now homeschooled.

While it is disappointing that the Committee did not pass the original
bill, it is still an improvement over existing law and will give more
freedom to homeschool parents with special needs children. Therefore,
we are recommending that the home educators of North Dakota support
the bill in its present form and continue to contact their
legislators, asking them to vote for this bill. We will not give up
the fight to remove unnecessary restrictions from homeschooling
parents in future legislative sessions.

This bill may come before the full House of Representatives very soon,
so time is of the essence.


ACTION REQUESTED

1. Please contact your state representative with this message:

"Please vote for House Bill 1265. This bill would allow parents to
homeschool their developmentally disabled children as every other
state permits."

You can find the name and telephone number of your state
representative by using HSLDA's Legislative Toolbox at

2. Please forward this e-mail to every homeschooling family you know
who is not a member of HSLDA and urge them to contact members their
state representative.

Sincerely,

Dewitt T. Black, III

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
