Ohio--Update on Daytime Curfew Ordinance in Mansfield

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

A proposed daytime curfew was discussed at a recent city council
meeting in Mansfield where the chief of police has suggested that such
a restriction is needed. We have spoken with members of the council,
in particular Scott Hazen and Mike Hill, and we understand that the
ordinance has not been introduced formally. Both Councilman Hazen and
Councilman Hill (who is running for mayor of Mansfield) have publicly
stated their opposition to a daytime curfew. We were told also that
the council heard your voices and that they understand that this is
being closely watched by the citizens of Mansfield and all of Ohio.

The controversy has even reached a national audience. Yesterday,
Focus on the Family's Family News in Focus ran a news story about the
daytime curfew in Mansfield. You can hear about it here:
http://www.citizenlink.org/fnif/ .

Daytime curfew legislation undermines the freedom and liberty we enjoy
in the United States. Several versions of this ordinance have been
considered in other Ohio towns with varying results--last year, it was
introduced in Mansfield, but defeated in committee. We hope to be
able to achieve a similar result this year.

Thank you for your continued vigilance and help in protecting the
freedom to homeschool in Ohio.

For more information on daytime curfews, please see our analysis of
this issue at http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?ID=2102 .

Sincerely,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
