-> 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.

2. When Criminals Have Rights where the Poor Have None

If the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child were ratified,
perhaps we, too, could join "the civilized nations of Europe," where
criminals can have children as a means to get out of jail, while the
innocent have their children taken away for the crime of being poor.

7. Special Pre-order Price for Constitutional Literacy with Dr. Farris

to American self-government. Pre-order discount ends July 1.
