the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) need to know that you
support these changes being made before the vote on June 18.


Go to and read the joint letter
by D.C. homeschool leaders and HSLDA Staff Attorney Mike Donnelly.
Then, email the following D.C. school officials and ask them to
incorporate the changes suggested in the letter:

Deborah Gist, State Superintendent of Education

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.
