New Jersey--Update--Stop Calls on Homeschool Bill

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Your message has come through loud and clear!

Lawmakers are standing up and taking note that there is powerful
opposition to A. 3123, the homeschool restriction bill. We have also
heard a remark that your calls were amazingly courteous. This has
helped to increase their impact.

It is now time to stop the phone calls. We are entering a new phase,
but the fight is definitely not over. The task force will work through
individual meetings with lawmakers and their staff to continue to
drive the point home. We hope to get more commitments from lawmakers
to oppose the bill. It is currently not set for a hearing, but if it
is, we will let you know immediately.

You may hear a rumor that there will be a rally for homeschoolers in
Trenton to oppose the bill. The task force has not recommended any
rally, and we do not believe it would be appropriate at this time. If
you hear a rumor of a rally, you can be certain it has nothing to do
with the New Jersey homeschool task force.

The organizations of the New Jersey homeschool task force are firmly
united for the full and final defeat of A. 3123: HSLDA, Catholic
Homeschoolers of New Jersey (Kevin Kiernan), Eagle Forum of
New Jersey (Carolee Adams), Education Network Of Christian
Homeschoolers of New Jersey (Mark August), New Jersey Homeschool
Association (Nan McVicker), and Unschoolers Network (Nancy Plent).

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Scott A. Woodruff

-> 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!
