Illinois--Sen. Lightford Agrees to Drop U.N. Resolution!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Sen. Kimberly Lightford told us this afternoon that she is dropping
her resolution on the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child!
There will be no hearing on SR 92 tomorrow (Wednesday) and the senator
says she will cease all efforts on it.

God is good!

Calls are no longer needed, unless you or your group want to send a
"thank you" to Sen. Lightford for hearing us and withdrawing SR 92. I
expect she did not fully understand the CRC at the time she introduced
her resolution. But your many, many phone calls, the written
information I sent her, and the input of many others broadened her
understanding and convinced her that the CRC is not a good idea.

I know many of you had already cancelled other things on your schedule
so you could come to the hearing that was to have been tomorrow. Your
willingness to change plans on short notice (we did not know of the
hearing until yesterday!) made a big difference. I think a number of
senators did not want homeschoolers filling up the state Capitol
again!

Far more people in Illinois now know about the harmful impact the CRC
would have on our lives. To this extent, the filing and subsequent
withdrawal of SR 92 served an extremely useful purpose. But the
Convention on the Rights of the Child continues to be a threat at the
federal level. Please continue telling others about the CRC!

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
