Virginia--Restore Freedom at Dec. 9 School Board Meeting

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

On Thursday, December 9, the school board has scheduled a final vote
on the religious exemption policy. The policy now on the table is
very good, and deserves your strong support. But those who want to
take away freedom will attend, too, and will try to convince the board
to reject the policy.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please attend the meeting at 7 p.m. at the Warren County Government
Center. Applaud those who speak in defense of freedom, and consider
speaking yourself.

BACKGROUND

Virginia protected religious freedom even before there was a First
Amendment--even before there was a "United States of America." To this
day, Virginia law protects religious freedom even more strongly than
the First Amendment.

But the battle for religious freedom in Warren County is now taking
place on the local level. The school board will decide exactly how it
will implement the state exemption for families with religious
convictions against public school attendance.

At the November 11 meeting, I spoke to the school board and said that
the good current draft complies with state law. Others spoke in
support of it, as well. Despite the efforts of those who want to take
away freedom, the board kept the draft intact moving forward.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

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:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
