Virginia--Calls Needed to Support Homeschool Freedom Bill

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

January 27, 2006:

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We have an extra day to ask our delegates to support House Bill 1340
since it is likely that the vote has been delayed until Tuesday.
Please call January 30 and 31 to support this important legislation.
Your calls can make the difference.

With your help we have been able to pass this bill once before in the
House of Delegates. The bill has already passed the Senate and if it
passes the House it can be sent to the Governor.

Action Requested:

If you have not been able to reach your delegate yet, please continue
trying. When you get through, give your delegate this message:

"Please vote in support of H.B. 1340. It will protect every parent's
right to homeschool. Virginia needs to join the other 48 states that
focus on results, not qualifications. The studies all show that
homeschooling works, with students scoring above average
regardless of the parents' qualifications."

Use our legislative toolbox at to get
contact information for your delegate.


The companion bill to H.B. 1340 has already passed the Senate. If H.B.
1340 passes the House, it will go to the Governor.

If passed, this bill will allow families with a high school diploma
the same freedom to homeschool as other families. It will align
Virginia with the other 48 states that allow homeschoolers who only
have a high school diploma to teach their children without needless
restrictions. Passage of the legislation will end the harassment
families without college degrees face from some school districts.

For more information and documentation that demonstrates that there is
no positive correlation between teacher qualifications and student
performance, see .
