HSLDA: Opportunity to Help the Department
of Education with Homeschool Research

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Over the past decade, the U.S. Department of Education has conducted
research on the number of homeschoolers in the United States. This
research has showed that homeschooling continues to grow, and has
served as independent verification of HSLDA's own research that
demonstrates the increasing number of homeschooling families. You can
read the Department of Education's most recent report here:
http://nces.ed.gov/pubs2009/2009030.pdf

The Department of Education recently contacted HSLDA about increasing
the quality and accuracy of homeschool research. The Department
submitted the proposed questionnaire for homeschoolers to HSLDA for
our review, and is also seeking input from local homeschooling
families. If you live in the D.C. metro area, and are interested in
attending a one-on-one meeting to review the proposed research
questionnaire for homeschoolers, please see the following message:

------------------------------
The American Institutes for Research (AIR) is seeking parents who
homeschool their children to participate in a 90-minute interview.
AIR is helping the U.S. Department of Education develop surveys about
children's care arrangements and education. We are looking for
volunteers who are currently homeschooling a child age 5-17. The
interview will last no longer than 90 minutes, and participants will
be given $60 as a thank-you for their time.

Please call or email Sarah Grady for more information or to schedule
an interview: 202-403-6190 or sgrady@air.org
------------------------------

This is a strictly voluntary opportunity. However, we believe that
this will help increase the quality and accuracy of future homeschool
research.

Very truly yours,

Mike Smith
President, HSLDA
