legislation for you -- watching and listening carefully for any
proposed laws that could erode your right to homeschool.
Join HSLDA today-we'll watch out for your future.

4. Home School Heartbeat: Parental Rights--The Burden Test

As homeschoolers, we often think that a parent's right to direct their
children's education is secure, but a look at the legal record proves
that we can't take anything for granted. Join Michael Farris as he
delves into the implications of a 2005 ruling by the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals and other similar decisions. If we want to guard our
rights, we must be aware of the dangers they face in the courts.
