North Dakota--Calls Needed Today on Homeschool Bill!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

On February 15, 2011, the House Education Committee passed an amended
version of House Bill 1211, the homeschool freedom bill.
Unfortunately, the committee stripped from the bill everything except
the improvements to the law enacted in 2009. But even the amended
version is favorable to homeschoolers, because unless it passes, the
law will revert to what it was prior to 2009. This would mean that
parents with a high school diploma or GED must once again be monitored
by a state-certified teacher during the first two years of
homeschooling, and home education would have to be conducted only in
the child's home.

This bill is now before the full House of Representatives and may be
voted on as early as today. It is absolutely crucial that members of
the House know that homeschoolers want this bill to be passed in its
amended form.

Your representative needs to hear from you right now!

ACTION REQUESTED:

1. Please call and/or e-mail your state representative and urge him or
her to vote in favor of the amended version of House Bill 1211 with
this message or something similar in your own words:

"Please vote for the amended version of House Bill 1211 which would
remove the sunset clauses from the law enacted in 2009 and make the
changes permanent."

2. Please forward this email to every family you know who is not a
member of HSLDA and urge them to contact their state representative
with this same message.

To obtain contact information for your state representative, go to
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10411 .

You can also leave a message for your state representative with the
legislative telephone message center at 1-888-NDLEGIS (635-3447) or
701-328-3373 (local).
