-> "I saved my entire membership fee with one discount"

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"

1. Florida: 'Your Home Education Program is Terminated!'

action and quickly showed officials that they had made a mistake.

5. Still Time to Enroll in January Constitutional Law Course

If you've always wanted to learn more about the history and background
of our legal system, from a biblical perspective, or if you're looking
for a good U.S. government class for your homeschooled students, then
sign up for the next Constitutional Law course taught by Michael
Farris. The class begins January 8, 2007, and concludes June 4, 2007.

This 18-week Internet-based course follows Farris' new textbook,
"Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens," and uses a MP3 CD to
deliver the "classroom" lectures.
