-> Will your children's inheritance retain its value?

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.

1. Michigan: Homeschooler Receives 'Armed Escort' Across Town

Home School Legal Defense Association attorneys helped protect the
rights of a Michigan homeschooling family who were visited by a social
worker. We helped show that allegations against the family were false,
but not before a cross-town trip involving an armed police "escort."

2. Texas: 'Let My People Go!'

A member family contacted us from a Texas hospital when a social
worker refused to let them leave. The official said she would not let
the family go until she had interviewed all of the children for
evidence of alleged abuse. Our attorneys acted immediately and
convinced the official she had exceeded her authority.

3. Virginia: Fluvanna County Corrects Misstep

made confusing demands. We contacted school officials and explained
how they had made a mistake regarding the family's legal status.

5. Michigan: Truancy Officer Attempts Unlawful Inspection

A Michigan family called the Home School Legal Defense Association
during a surprise visit by a truancy officer. The officer said she had
been ordered to inspect the family's homeschooling curriculum, but
left when an HSLDA attorney explained that she had no legal authority
to conduct such an inspection.

6. HSLDA 2006 Photo Contest Seeks Entries

The Home School Legal Defense Association welcomes homeschoolers to
submit their photographs for our annual contest. The purpose of our
contest is to encourage excellence among homeschooled students as they
explore photography both as an art form and a means of documenting the
world around them.

7. "Home School Heartbeat": What Is Mentoring?

How can you help your teens make a smooth transition to adulthood?
This week, Inge Cannon joins Mike Smith to discuss mentoring--the
process of guiding your teens through major life decisions. It's an
effective way to invest in their lives, and it doesn't take an
expert--just loving parents who want to see their children become
mature, successful adults.
