Virginia--Victory for Homeschool Freedom Bill

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================


January 30, 2006

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Your calls made the difference!

Today, the Virginia House of Delegates acted to bring greater freedom
to homeschool families by voting 60 to 38 to pass House Bill 1340. It
has already passed the Senate.

We will notify you when the bill goes to Governor Kaine, who as
lieutenant Governor two years ago supported a bill with nearly
identical provisions.

If signed, House Bill 1340 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 http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?ID=1288 .

Sincerely,


Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
