Virginia--Please Call Immediately to Stop the State Choosing Tests for

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We urgently need your help.

Five of the six members of the conference committee voted yesterday to
give the State Superintendent of Public Instruction the power to
decide what tests homeschool parents can use under testing option 1.

The bill can no longer be amended. Our freedom can only be protected
by defeating HB 1770 outright.

Your calls must reach the Capitol before 11:00 AM. The House and
Senate will go into session around noon and vote on HB 1770 shortly

Home Educators Association of Virginia agrees that the bill should be


1. Immediately call your Senator and Delegate and give them this
message, "Please vote NO on HB 1770. Bureaucrats must not be given
the power to dictate which tests homeschool families can use."

2. Not all homeschoolers have email. Please call several of your
homeschool friends and ask them to join us in this final push to
protect freedom.

3. Call the Constituent Viewpoint switchboard to leave a message for
your Senator and Delegate. You can use (800) 889-0229 if you live
outside the Richmond area or (804) 698-1990 if you live in Richmond.

4. If you do not know the name of your Senator or Delegate, use our
legislative toolbox at

For a more detailed explanation of why the status quo is better than
the current form of HB 1770, go to

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Research can be grueling-digging through archives, wading through
articles, conducting interviews. But if it's related to
homeschooling, you can relax a little. There's a good chance that
you'll find what you're looking for in HSLDA's bimonthly
Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.
