Illinois: Victory for Freedom in Belleville!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Last night the Belleville Board of Aldermen unanimously adopted a
cleaned-up truancy ordinance representing a concurrence between city
officials and homeschool representatives (the June 29 draft).

With the formal adoption of the ordinance, this chapter in the fight
to protect liberty in Belleville comes to a close. The freedom of
young people to move about during the daytime has been preserved
thanks to the prompt and powerful response of homeschool families.

A special word of thanks goes to J.C. Harrison and Tim Jones, who
provided "boots on the ground" leadership for the homeschool
community, and to Illinois Christian Home Educators, the state
homeschool organization that made important contributions.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please send a word of thanks to the mayor, chief of police, and
members of the Board of Aldermen. They listened to our concerns and
made the changes we requested.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

For a number of years, Belleville has had a truancy ordinance which is
much stricter than state law. The ordinance adopted last night did
little to change that.

We recommend that you review the June 29 draft on our website to see
changes to Belleville's nighttime curfew which may affect you.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
