1. New Jersey: Officials Promise to Destroy Ill-gotten Information

privacy of homeschoolers in the West Windsor-Plainsboro school system.

4. Last Chance 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 an MP3 CD to
deliver the "classroom" lectures.

5. 'Home School Heartbeat': Human Rights and International Law

On September 12, 2006, the European Court of Human Rights rendered a
decision in Konrad v. Germany that affirmed the power of the German
government to ban home education. How could this impact homeschooling
in America?
