Texas: Please Call to Support College Scholarships

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We wrote to you before about H.B. 1250, a bill sponsored by
Representative Charlie Howard, which will amend the current law and
allow low-income private school students--including homeschoolers--to
receive the Texas Grant Scholarship.

This bill will remove the term "accredited" that is presently required
for private schools. This bill does not use the term "home-school"; it
will remove the discrimination against non-accredited private schools
(this term includes homeschools) in Texas.

This bill has passed the House as well as the Senate Education
Committee. It will have a vote by the full Senate at any time. Please
take a moment and call your Senator to show your support for this
bill.

REQUESTED ACTION

Please call your state senator and give this message:

"Please support H.B. 1250 which will remove current discrimination
against some low-income students in receiving scholarships."

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

BACKGROUND

For more information about this bill, go to the summary at:

Thank you for taking the time to show your support for homeschooling!

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
