Illinois--Calls Needed to House Committee to Stop the Compulsory
Attendance Bill


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thank you for your many calls to the Senate Education Committee. An
important amendment was added to Senate Bill 409 to protect your
parental rights.

However, the bill is still costly and unnecessary. It needs to be
defeated. S.B. 409 is now in the House Education Committee. A hearing
is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27. This is our best chance to
defeat this bill.


ACTION REQUESTED

Please call as many members of the House Education Committee as
possible and give him this message:

"Please vote against Senate Bill 409, which lowers the compulsory
attendance age. This bill is unnecessary. It restricts parental choice
and wastes taxpayer money."

Do not identify yourself as a homeschooler.

House Education Committee:

Chairperson: Representative Calvin Giles
217-782-5962

Vice-chairperson: Representative Monique Davis

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum-some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
