Freedom Alert: Take Action to Advance Freedom

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The New Hampshire House of Representatives is moving swiftly to
advance the cause of parental and homeschooling freedoms through
various legislation. Your action is needed to support these bills. I
am asking you to take action to support passage of House Bill 1382,
sponsored by Rep. Jim Parison, which would require a truant officer to
get a warrant or parental permission before taking custody of a child
to return him to school if the child is allegedly in violation of
compulsory school attendance requirements. The bill also gives parents
the authority to approve alternative learning plans. Alternative
learning plans can be submitted for children after the age of 16 as a
way to comply with the compulsory attendance law but not attend

Action Requested:

Please contact members of the Education Committee to support HB 1382.
A public hearing is scheduled for Friday, January 20, 2012 at 1:00
p.m. in Legislative Office Building 207. Please attend if you would
like to support this bill in person.

You can give legislators the following message in your own words:
"Please support HB 1382 which recognizes parental authority by
requiring a truant officer to receive parental permission before
taking children into custody if they are required to be in school but
are absent. By permitting parents to approve alternative learning
plans HB 1382 further recognizes that parents, not the state, have the
natural and fundamental right to direct and determine their child's

Because this bill benefits all parents in New Hampshire there is no
need to specify you are a homeschooling parent.
