Illinois--Help Stop Daytime Curfew in Boone County Tomorrow

June 14, 2011

Dear HSLDA members and friends in Boone County:

If you are told that having a daytime curfew will help reduce truancy,
don't believe it.

Based on statistics from the Illinois State Board of Education, 136
students per year, on average, were chronically truant in Belvidere
CUSD 100 in the 5 school years prior to the enactment of their daytime
curfew in June 1996.

But over the next 10 years, 235 students, on average, were chronically
truant per year.

That's an increase of 73% in chronic truancy AFTER the daytime curfew
became law!

Based on the same reports, fewer than 4 students per year were
chronically truant, on average, over the last 5 years in North Boone
CUSD 200. With chronic truancy so low in Boone County, it's hardly a
matter for urgent legislation. But beyond that, history proves that a
daytime curfew does nothing to reduce truancy, and may even increase
it.

ACTION REQUESTED

Tomorrow please attend the 6:30 p.m. meeting of the board, 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.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely yours,

Scott A. Woodruff
