Rhode Island--Attend Chariho Meeting Tonight About Locator Cards

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Locator cards are on the agenda for tonight's Chariho School Committee
meeting!

We need a strong showing of homeschool families to continue to push
for freedom. Please attend tonight to urge the committee to stop
forcing locator cards on homeschoolers. You will have an opportunity
to speak during the "public forum" portion of the meeting. Please
urge the committee to adopt a policy specifically stating that locator
cards shall not be demanded of homeschool families.

The meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the Chariho Middle School
Library.

Forcing locator cards on homeschoolers would dramatically increase the
amount of red tape families must endure. There is considerable hassle
involved in getting and filling out a locator card.

And there is no sensible reason to put families to this trouble. When
a family puts their address on their letter of intent, it should be
taken at face value. No one has an incentive to provide false
information. Families should be treated with trust and respect.

If a child is enrolled in public school, and thousands of dollars of
tax money moves with him, perhaps the red tape of the locator card is
justified. But it is certainly not justified when homeschoolers pay
all their own expense for educating their children.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.

HSLDA members since 1993, our membership is just as important to
us as our children's curriculum. Thank you HSLDA for all you do on
our behalf! - West Valley, NY
