Illinois--Oppose Curfew, Truancy Ordinance at Hearing June 15

Dear Members and Friends in Boone County, Illinois:

The daytime curfew-truancy ordinance we have previously told you about
was supported by three committee members and opposed by two at the
meeting Monday.

This means we must continue opposing the ordinance. It is now set for
a vote before the full Boone County Board on Wednesday, June 15.

Defeating this ordinance means your children will continue to enjoy
the blessing of being able to move about during the day without fear
of being interrogated by a police officer to see if they are "truant."
Defeating it means not creating a new opportunity for a homsechool
family to be summoned before a municipal judge based on a dispute with
the public school system over when their child was really
withdrawn--and possibly placing their right to homeschool in jeopardy.

The preservation of your freedom may now lie in your own hands!


1. Please attend the June 15, 6:30 p.m. meeting of the committee, at
1212 Logan Ave., Belvidere, to express your opposition to the curfew
and truancy proposals. Before the meeting starts, fill out a public
comment form and give it to the chairman so you can speak during the
public comment section of the meeting.

2. Call members of the board (phone numbers below). Your message can
be as simple as "Please vote NO on the proposed daytime curfew and the
proposed truancy ordinance." Check our previous emails for additional
background, if you wish. A link to the text of the ordinance, and
previous emails on this subject, are on our website at .

3. If you hear these issues discussed in public--on radio, or in
newspaper editorials, etc.--participate so the voice of those who
oppose these can be heard.

4. Spread the word among your friends! We need a very strong showing
at the June 15 meeting to defeat this ordinance.

-> Will your children's inheritance retain its value?

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.
