Nebraska--Governor Heineman Declares
March 30-April 5 Nebraska Home Education Week!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Governor Dave Heineman has issued a proclamation declaring March
30-April 5, 2008, Nebraska Home Education Week! In part, the
proclamation states:

"WHEREAS, The State of Nebraska desires to promote excellence in
education; and

"WHEREAS, Dozens of studies confirm that children who are educated at
home score significantly above average on national achievement tests;
and . . .

"WHEREAS, The State of Nebraska recognizes the fundamental right of
parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children; and

"WHEREAS, It is appropriate that home educators be recognized and
commended for their dedication to excellence in education and for
their significant and vital contributions to our society."

To read the full proclamation, go to

In other good news, L.B. 1141 is still sitting in the Education
Committee. Though the committee can move the bill to the full
legislature, they have not yet done so, probably due to the
overwhelming response from you and other homeschooling families.
However, it is unlikely that the committee will act on the bill, as no
senator has made L.B. 1141 a priority, and right now, many other
priority bills are fighting for the legislature's attention.

Thank you for your hard work and support of homeschooling in Nebraska.
Your efforts have made the difference in the fight against L.B. 1141.

We will continue to keep you updated as necessary.


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!
