Texas: House Considers Opposition to National Standards

Dear Texas HSLDA Members and Friends,

HSLDA has long opposed the federal government's support for national
education standards, curriculum, and testing. (For more information
visit http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10854 ). We believe that
nationalized education decisions hurt parental control over education
by putting key decisions of what and how children learn into the hands
of bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. Over the long run, this could even
impact the freedom of homeschool parents to have the freedom to choose
how to educate their children at home.

We are excited to let you know that the Texas House of Representatives
is considering legislation that would protect the right of state and
local authorities--not national "experts"--to decide educational
standards for Texas schoolchildren.

State Representative Dan Huberty has introduced H.B. 2923, relating to
state sovereignty over curriculum standards, assessments, and student
information. There will be a hearing for this bill on Thursday, April
14, upon adjournment of the House (approximately between noon and 4
p.m.). The hearing will be held in the state Capitol Extension Room
E2.010.

We encourage you to attend this hearing and support H.B. 2923. For
more information, you can contact State Representative Dan Huberty at
512-463-0331.

Very truly yours,

Darren Jones
HSLDA Staff Attorney

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
