Vermont--Victory: Senate Pulls Proposed Home Study Changes

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

You did it! The Senate Education Committee decided to pull the
proposed changes to the Vermont home study law, for now. While the
battle is not over, this is a great victory. Thanks to all of you who
took action and contacted members of the Senate Education Committee.

Senators reported that they received many contacts from homeschoolers.
As a result, the committee has requested that the commissioner begin
communications with homeschoolers and advocates, such as Retta Dunlap,
to come up with language that will be amenable to all parties. HSLDA
has been told that the commissioner has agreed to include the whole
homeschooling community in this discussion.

A homeschool day at the State House is being planned and is
tentatively scheduled for March 29, at 10:00 a.m., so mark your
calendars. HSLDA encourages families to attend this event in order to
help demonstrate that the movement for home education freedom in
Vermont is alive and well.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Retta Dunlap at
vhen@comcast.net with your name, email, and phone number from at least
one adult in your group/family. Also, please let Retta know if you are
available to assist with the event.

Thank you for working with us to preserve homeschooling freedom in
Vermont! It is privilege to serve you and your families!

Sincerely,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
