Minnesota--Homeschool Law Remains Unchanged

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for your tremendous support of homeschool freedom in
Minnesota this legislative session. All your calls, emails and letters
did not go unnoticed. Despite attempts by lawmakers to raise the
compulsory school attendance age and expand test reporting for
homeschoolers, the homeschool law did not changed.

HSLDA worked closely this legislative session with MACHE to extend
homeschool freedom in Minnesota. Due to the state's budget crisis, the
homeschool community had an opportunity to reduce mandated reporting
requirements. Unfortunately, the Homeschool Mandate Reduction
language was not included in the final version of H.F. 2, the Omnibus
K-12 Education bill, which would have significantly extended freedom
for Minnesota homeschoolers.

The Minnesota Legislature adjourned on May 18 and did not vote to
extend homeschool freedom by reducing government oversight this
session. Nevertheless, all of your hard work ensured no negative
changes and laid the ground work for victory in future legislative
battles.

Thank you again for standing with us in defense of freedom!

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
