New Hampshire--More Calls Needed
to Resist State Control Over Homeschools!

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

The New Hampshire House Education Committee will have a public hearing
on Senate Bill 18 on Wednesday, April 18, 2007, at 10 a.m. in the
Legislative Office Building, Rooms 205-207.

Currently in New Hampshire, students cannot discontinue their high
school studies without parental consent. Senate Bill 18 would give
superintendents, rather than parents, the authority to decide when
children can discontinue their high school education before age 18.
This bill would add additional reporting requirements for

Calls and emails are now needed to persuade the House Education
Committee to vote against this legislation. Remember, there are many
new representatives in the New Hampshire House who are unfamiliar with
this bill's flaws.


1) Please contact members of the House Education Committee (listed
below) and ask them to oppose Senate Bill 18. Because this bill
affects all students, you need not identify yourself as a
homeschooler. If your last name begins with the letter A-I, please
contact members 1-6; if J-T, contact members 7-13; if U-Z, contact
members 13-19.

2) Please contact your own representative and ask him or her to vote
against Senate Bill 18 when it comes to the floor of the House. You
can use our legislative toolbox at to
obtain contact information.

Your message can be as simple as, "Please vote against Senate Bill 18.
This bill is unnecessary, and even harmful to families, as it takes
away parental decision-making authority and wastes taxpayer money."
