-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
- Alta Loma, California

7. Register Now for Spring Constitutional Law Online

Registration is now open for the spring semester of Constitutional Law
Online, taught by Michael Farris, Chairman of Home School Legal
Defense Association and Chancellor of Patrick Henry College. The class
begins January 5, 2009, and concludes June 1, 2009.

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
this class is for you! This internet-based course follows Michael
Farris' textbook, "Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens," and
uses a computer-based audio CD-ROM to deliver the "classroom"
lectures. Live chat-room discussions held every two weeks allow
students to pose questions to Dr. Farris.
