New York: General Information and Discussion
on Legal Status of Homeschooling in New York

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

By now many of you have probably heard the parents of a local
homeschooling family, Richard and Margie Cressy, were arrested for
failing to report to their local school district officials. HSLDA will
be representing the family. HSLDA Senior Counsel Jim Mason will attend
a meeting hosted by the Schenectady LEAH, a local New York State
Loving Education at Home chapter. Other local support groups will also
be present.

The meeting will be on January 14, 2010, at 7 p.m. at the Mid-American
Baptist Theological Seminary. The Seminary is located at 2810 Curry
Road Extension in Schenectady, NY 12303. We encourage you to come out
in support of the family and attend the meeting.

Mr. Mason will discuss in general the legal status of homeschooling in
New York and will address some of the issues that these types of cases
bring up. There also will be a time for questions and answers.

Please keep this situation and the Cressy family in your prayers.
Thank you for your part in fighting for freedom in New York!

Sincerely,

Thomas Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney
