New Hampshire: Classified as Highly
Regulated Due to Hostile Legislative Climate

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

HSLDA classifies states based on their regulatory requirements and
other factors on our state laws page at . Because of what we consider
a "hostile regulatory environment," we are now classifying New
Hampshire as a "red state."

New Hampshire homeschoolers have fought intense legislative battles to
defend their freedom from excessive government regulation over the
past several years. In general, New Hampshire's homeschool law is not
overly burdensome and is administered equitably. However, in the past
four years there have been significant and numerous attempts by a
determined group of pro-regulation legislators in New Hampshire to
impose significant new regulations on homeschoolers. The Department of
Education in New Hampshire has also demonstrated its antipathy to the
current status of homeschooling regulation in the state by its
actions. Recently the Department attempted to circumvent the Home
Education Advisory Council and impose new and burdensome restrictions,
some contrary to the law. To the great credit of New Hampshire State
Board of Education, however, the rulemaking process was conducted so
as to make only minimal changes to the rules.

HSLDA is pleased to serve the freedom-loving homeschoolers in New
Hampshire and is grateful for the support of our over 500 member
families in the Granite State. Because of your vigilance and support,
together we have stood against changes that had the potential to make
New Hampshire's homeschool law among the most burdensome in the
nation. We encourage you to take the opportunity to get involved in
this year's political process in order to insure that
homeschool-friendly candidates are sent to the legislature.

Thank you for your continued efforts to defend homeschool freedom in
New Hampshire! If you are not a member of HSLDA, I invite you to join
with us as we stand together against these threats to our freedom!

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.
