New Hampshire: HSLDA Challenges Absurd Ruling in State Supreme Court

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Home School Legal Defense Association recently filed a friend of the
court brief in a New Hampshire custody case because the trial court's
decision could detrimentally affect homeschoolers. The New Hampshire
Family Court ordered a homeschool girl into public school, even though
it acknowledged that she was excelling both academically and socially
while being homeschooled. The court applied the "best interests of the
child" standard and implied that homeschooling is unable to adequately
meet the needs of adolescent children. The homeschool family is being
represented by an Alliance Defense Fund attorney and has appealed the
decision to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

HSLDA Staff Attorney Michael Donnelly, join by CHENH, filed a brief to
the New Hampshire Supreme Court explaining the numerous advantages of
homeschooling and summarizing the overwhelming amount of evidence
showing that homeschooling is perfectly capable of meeting the
developmental needs of adolescent children.

For more information or to read a copy of the brief, visit here

Thank you for your support and for all you do in support for
homeschooling freedom in the Granite State.

Standing with you,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA 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.
