Nebraska--You Sent A Powerful Message!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

When 1,300 homeschoolers show up, legislators listen.

Your presence, demeanor and testimony in Lincoln on February 26 sent a
powerful message to the Education Committee--Nebraska homeschoolers
are paying attention and are ready to zealously protect their liberty.
For me personally, it was a privilege to be at the hearing to testify
and to meet so many of you. Thank you for your prayers and concern as
I battled the weather to overcome flight delays and transportation
issues--I arrived at the Capitol just minutes before I was scheduled
to speak!

At this point, we believe it is unlikely that L.B. 1141 will be voted
out of the Education Committee. There are a number of factors that
suggest this. The bill would have to overcome multiple obstacles
before being acted on: The Unicameral will not be in session for much
longer this year; L.B. 1141 is not a priority bill and there are many
priority bills yet to be debated by the full legislature; and the
Education Committee has not yet acted on this bill.

Although the Nebraska Unicameral is scheduled to end its session
soon--Thursday, April 17, 2008--it is important that Nebraska
homeschoolers remain vigilant should action be required.

HSLDA appreciates the work of the many homeschool groups in Nebraska
who worked together to defeat this bill. A special thanks also goes
to the tireless efforts of the Nebraska Christian Home Educators
Association, as well as to all the families who called their
legislators and attended the hearing. When homeschoolers work
together, there is little that we cannot accomplish! Thank you for
your support of HSLDA--we couldn't do it without your membership,
support and encouragement.

Very truly yours,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> 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!
