Rhode Island: Compulsory School Age Increase to 18 Passes Legislature

July 1, 2011

Dear Rhode Island HSLDA Members and Friends:

Despite your calls, the Rhode Island senate joined the house and
passed HB 5061.

Barring the unlikely event of a gubernatorial veto, families in Rhode
Island will be subject to compulsory education for an additional 2
years--until the student's 18 th birthday--when the new school year
begins.

It is difficult to tell how each family will be impacted by this
expansion of government power into their homes. In any event, it
underlines the importance of every homeschool family working to
protect liberty. There are no non-combatants in the battle to protect
liberty!

If you know any families who were sitting on the sidelines while HB
5061 was moving through the legislature, urge them to roll up their
sleeves, join HSLDA and Rhode Island Guild of Home Teachers, and be
ready to work next time their freedom is threatened.

There is strength in unity--and numbers!

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.
