New Hampshire: Attend Rally to Secure Homeschool Freedom

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The full New Hampshire House is set to vote on HB 1580 this Wednesday
afternoon on March 17.

At 1:00 p.m. homeschoolers from all over New Hampshire will gather at
the Capitol to support the bill. Both Republicans and Democrats will
hold a caucus before the House session; please be there before 1:00 to
ensure that the representatives see and hear your support when they
arrive.

In light of recent events, homeschoolers have an opportunity to secure
their cherished freedom by supporting HB 1580. If passed, the bill
would amend New Hampshire's compulsory attendance law to explicitly
recognize that "[i]t is the natural, fundamental right of parents to
determine and direct the education of their children."

Reports indicate that opponents of HB1580 are stating that by passing
1580 another law, presumably NH RSA 193-A (the home education law),
would be broken. Many states have multiple ways for parents to comply
with their compulsory attendance laws; there is no reason that New
Hampshire should be any different. Passing HB 1580 would not "cause"
any other laws to be broken.

Please take action to advance this fundamental freedom.

ACTION REQUESTED

Attend the rally this Wednesday, March 17, to support HB 1580.

Email, call and visit your legislator and give him or her the
following message:

"Thank you for standing with homeschoolers to defeat HB 368. Please
stand with us one more time to pass HB 1580. This bill is needed to
recognize in state law that parents are primarily responsible to
ensure that their children receive an education. HB 1580 will help
protect homeschoolers from future attempts like HB 368 and efforts by
staff within the Department of Education to impose unreasonable
constraints on our liberty and to interfere with our natural
responsibility. HB 1580 is simple and sends a clear message that New
Hampshire parents have a fundamental right to determine and direct
their children's education. Please vote to pass HB1580."

Thank you for your continued support of freedom and liberty in New
Hampshire!

Standing with you,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
Staff Attorney
