-> "I saved my entire membership fee with one discount"

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"

1. Iowa: "Suspended" Homeschooler Subject to Public School Rules

As the case of a student in a homeschool assistance program who had a
shotgun shell illustrates, dual-enrolled students must be aware they
are subject to two different sets of rules.

2. Parental Rights: Keep that Website Traffic Coming!

Last week ParentalRights.org asked each supporter to spread the word
to three people who had never visited our site. That is when the
Parental Rights movement's greatest resource swung into action.

5. 'Home School Heartbeat': Homeschooled Leader George Washington

As America honors the birthday of our first president, homeschoolers
can take a cue from Washington's education. Taught at home by his
mother after his father died, the young George combined academic
studies with good doses of practical application and character
training. The lessons he learned prepared him to lead our young nation
to victory.

6. Next week on HSLDA's @home e-vents...

Have you ever had a social worker contact you or visit your home?
Would you know what your rights are if they did? If you are an HSLDA
member, you won't want to miss a free, members-only session with HSLDA
President Mike Smith as he discusses this very issue!

On Monday, February 22, at 9:00 p.m. (ET), join Mike as he discusses
how to confidently handle a social worker visit, should you ever be
put in that position. Listen as he covers your Fourth Amendment
protections as well as what to do if you find yourself facing a visit
from someone at your door investigating your family. Throughout the
years, Mike has spoken to homeschoolers in 46 states and counseled
thousands of families through social worker contacts. If you have
questions or concerns, don't miss this e-vent!

Later in the week, join us on Wednesday, February 24, at 9:00 p.m.
(ET) to unlock some of the secrets of literature with Lesha Myers!

As parents and teachers, we know that literature is an essential part
of a good education. You may have several "classics" on your shelves
at home, but do you know what makes a good story? Do you know how to
teach literary analysis? Is there more to literary analysis than just
writing "book reports"? In this @home e-vent, you'll learn how to
evaluate great books, and how to use literature to cultivate wisdom in
your child's education. This e-vent is open to everyone, so register
today!

There is still space for you to join these e-vents--sign up now to
reserve your "seat"! To register, go to
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=7676 .

If you have any questions, please contact the @home e-vent coordinator
at webinars@hslda.org.
