California: Los Angeles Public Hearing on Daytime Curfews

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Last year, Home School Legal Defense Association sued the City of Los
Angeles and its police department on behalf of two homeschooled
teenagers who were arrested for violating the Los Angeles daytime
curfew. Even though the students' school wasn't in session, the police
ignored the children's explanation that they were homeschooled,
ignored their mother's confirmation over the phone, and transported
them to a "truancy processing center" where they were held for over
three hours.

On Monday, April 18, the Public Safety Committee of the Los Angeles
City Council will host a public hearing on the impact of the daytime
curfew law and truancy tickets in Los Angeles. Darren Jones, a
litigation attorney with HSLDA, will be testifying about the numerous
cases we defend where homeschoolers are improperly cited for violating
daytime curfews. HSLDA has vigorously opposed daytime curfews around
the country, because we believe that they are an unfair burden on
freedom-loving families.

We encourage homeschooling families to attend the hearing, which will
accept testimony on the ways that daytime curfews impact public,
private, and homeschooled students.

The hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on April 18, in Room 1010 of
Los Angeles City Hall at 200 N. Spring St.

Standing with you in liberty,

Darren A. Jones
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.
