New Hampshire--Attend State Board Public Hearing and Support Freedom

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

While the House Education Committee recently voted H.B. 368
inexpedient to legislate, the State Board of Education is continuing
to review the commissioner's proposed home education rules.

The New Hampshire Board of Education is scheduled to hold a public
hearing regarding the proposed rules on December 9, 2009, at 11:00
a.m. at the New Hampshire Department of Education building in Concord.

The Board is anticipated to allow 30 minutes of public testimony. The
Commissioner of Education will be asking the Board to submit a version
of the rules reflecting the changes proposed by the Home Education
Advisory Council (HEAC). Several homeschool leaders, representing
various constituent groups, will also be testifying in favor of the
rules adopted by the HEAC.

You can view a comparison of the HEAC and Department of Education
proposals here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=7318

ACTION REQUESTED

1) While there may be limited time for comment, HSLDA encourages you
to attend the New Hampshire Board of Education public hearing on
December 9. A strong presence of homeschoolers at the hearing shows
that homeschoolers are concerned about their freedoms and are willing
to stand up and defend them.

If you would like to testify, HSLDA recommends testifying in favor of
the rules submitted by the HEAC. The HEAC invested long hours to make
sure the rules appropriately reflect the recent legislative changes to
RSA 193-A.

2) We also encourage you to submit written comments regarding the
rules, by December 23, to:

Mary Mayo
New Hampshire Department of Education
101 Pleasant Street
Concord NH 03301

Please make the following message clear in your own words:

"The Home Education Advisory Council has proposed a version of the
home education rules (Ed. 315) that appropriately and accurately
reflects the recent legislative changes to RSA 193-A. Please adopt the
HEAC's proposed changes to the rules."

Thank you for your commitment to defending homeschool freedom in the
Granite State.

Very Truly Yours,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
Staff Attorney

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's Federal Relations Department is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
