Iowa--"Suspended Homeschool Child" Articles

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The press has carried a number of stories recently about a Carlisle,
Iowa, family whose 6-year-old son the public school "suspended"
because he attended an educational event with a live shotgun shell in
his pocket. The articles say the lad is being homeschooled. It might
be frightening to hear about a public school "suspending" a
"homeschooled" child.

HSLDA member families need not be anxious, however.

The problem arose only because his parents put him in a homeschool
assistance program. When the family open-enrolled him to the "Des
Moines Home Instruction Program" (the formal name of the Des Moines
HSAP), the family waived certain parental and educational rights.
Those who wish to participate in a government HSAP must abide by their
lawfully adopted rules.

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.,
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.

us as our children's curriculum. Thank you HSLDA for all you do on
our behalf! - West Valley, NY
