-> 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!

4. Still Time to Enroll in Online 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 7, 2008, and concludes June 2, 2008.

This 18-week Internet-based course follows Farris' textbook,
"Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens," and uses an MP3 CD to
deliver the "classroom" lectures.
