Texas: Calls Needed For Tomorrow's Vote
for Homeschooler Access to Exams

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

As we have reported to you before, H.B. 1844, sponsored by
Representative Charlie Howard, will require public school districts to
publish the dates of testing for the PSAT to homeschoolers and allow
homeschoolers to take AP tests.

Thanks for your calls last week to the committee! This bill passed the
House Public Education Committee and will be voted on by the full
House on Wednesday, April 18. HSLDA Legislative Counsel Tom Sanders
has been lobbying for it and has already met with the Senate sponsor,
Senator Kyle Janek to lend HSLDA's support.

We have had reports from our members in the past that they have been
denied access to these tests. This bill will remedy the situation.

Your calls are needed now to ensure the passage of H.B. 1844 by the
full House.

REQUESTED ACTION

Please call your state representative and give him or her message:

"Please vote in favor of H.B. 1844, introduced by Rep. Howard. This
bill will end the discrimination against homeschool students seeking
to take college entrance exams and PSAT and AP testing."

You can find information on your representative by using our
Legislative Toolbox at

Thank you for you calls to help homeschool students.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
Senior Counsel

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
at
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
