Nevada--Early Education Bill, S.B. 378, Defeated
Your Calls Made the Difference!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thanks to your calls and emails to the Nevada Legislature, Senate Bill
378 is now dead!

The bill, which required the State Department of Education to
establish a plan for early childhood education, was vetoed by Governor
Jim Gibbons last Thursday. In a special Sunday session on May 31, the
legislature had a chance to override his veto with a two-thirds
majority vote. Despite pressure from the Nevada Department of
Education to approve the bill, the Nevada Senate voted "no" on S.B.
378.

HSLDA and Nevada Homeschool Network opposed S.B. 378 because history
demonstrates that what is initially optional in the educational arena
inexorably becomes mandatory in due course. Early childhood education
advocates have been clear in announcing their goal of mandatory
preschool for all children, including homeschoolers.

The defeat of Senate Bill 378 is nothing short of a miracle, and it
would not have happened without your prayers, support, and willingness
to be personally involved in the legislative process. THANK YOU to
everyone who worked so hard to preserve parental freedom in education!


Sincerely,

J. Michael Smith
HSLDA President
