Arizona--Exciting Free Evening Seminar Coming Next Week

Dear Arizona HSLDA Members and Friends,

Next Friday, February 20, Arizona Families for Home Education (AFHE)
will be hosting a free evening seminar titled "Homeschooling
Trends--the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly." This seminar will be from 7
to 9 p.m. at the Faith Family Church in Chandler.

HSLDA Staff Attorney Tj Schmidt will be speaking at the event. He will
start by sharing some of the recent positive victories the
homeschooling community has seen across the country, including the
California case, In Re Jonathan L. et al.

From his experiences as a staff attorney, Tj will share some of the
recent attacks to homeschooling freedom that HSLDA has seen on both a
local and national level. Ongoing cases, negative legislation, and
troublesome situations will all be discussed.

Tj will also talk about another issue that raises a lot of questions
in the homeschooling community--publicly funded virtual school
programs. These programs are often marketed to homeschool parents and
presented as a potential benefit to the established homeschool

While Arizona homeschooling law has a lot of freedom for parents to
teach their children at home, it is important that we remain vigilant
to possible issues that could impact our freedom.

This evening seminar is free to anyone interested hearing about the
recent homeschooling trends. Please contact your homeschooling friends
and let know about this event.

For more information on this free evening seminar, please go to: .

If you are not a member of HSLDA and would like to partner with us in
protecting and defending the right of parents to teach their children
at home, you can join at the seminar. As an added benefit, anyone who
joins or renews at the seminar will receive $10 of a one year
membership or $25 of two years.

Hope to see you there!


Thomas J. Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
