Missouri--Protect Our Kids' Jobs--Hearing April 7

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

A bill that would prevent state and local agencies from refusing to
hire homeschool graduates just because they were homeschooled, Senate
Bill 232, will come up for a crucial hearing next week. If you know
of a homeschooler who was refused a job--unless he got a GED-- by a
fire department, police, sheriff, road maintenance agency, or any
other state or local agency or department, we need to hear by Monday!

ACTION REQUESTED

Email your story to mofamnet@ldd.net . Include plenty of details (see
below for examples). Keep in mind that the most helpful stories will
be ones where you personally know what happened. If you know of a
good story, but you know that someone else has more first-hand
knowledge, urge THEM to email their story in.

When a qualified young person is rejected for a job for a reason
unrelated to the actual job qualifications, everyone loses.

Please pass this on to others.

BACKGROUND

This is the kind of detail that would be very helpful:

> What agency was involved
> What job the grad applied for
> What the grad was told
> What the grad did after that
> What the final result was

S.B. 232 passed the Senate unanimously on March 12. But we need help
in the House!

Please send your story by Monday. We may be able to use it if you send
in Tuesday before noon, but that leaves very little time for follow-up
before the hearing. Do not reply back to HSLDA--send your email to
mofamnet@ldd.net . It would be very helpful if you would use this as
the subject line: "URGENT GED-Pol-Sub-Div occurrence."

Senator Jane Cunningham is the sponsor of this much-needed bill. We
are not requesting phone calls to committee members.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely Yours,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
