-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.

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

The Constitution was formed by the authority of "We the People," and

protect, and defend the Constitution. Join Michael Farris as he walks
through the constitutional history and legal theory that are essential
to American self-government. Pre-order discount ends July 1.
