North Dakota--Homeschool Bill Passes Legislative Assembly

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Great news! House Bill 1211 is close to becoming law in North Dakota.
On March 23, 2011, the Senate Education Committee gave it a unanimous
"do pass," then on March 24, 2011, the full Senate passed the bill by
a vote of 43-3. Now it goes to the governor for his signature.

Enactment of House Bill 1211 will mean that the improvements made to
the law during the 2009 legislative session become permanent. These
include no monitoring of home education programs by a state-certified
teacher so long as the parent has a high school diploma or GED.
Additionally, parents will continue to have the flexibility of
providing the instruction at some location other than their home.

Many thanks to all of you who contacted your legislators about this
bill. There is no doubt that your grassroots lobbying made a
difference in how the bill was handled. Thanks also to the leadership
of the North Dakota Home School Association who worked so hard on this
bill. I believe we can look forward to even more improvements in the
law in future legislative sessions.

Senior Counsel

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
