South Dakota: Victory in House Committee!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Thank you for your phone calls! This morning the House Education
Committee voted in favor of HB 1005--without making any of the harmful
changes that were proposed in the Tieszen amendment.

As promised, the Department of Education removed Section 2 of the
bill, which was problematic. The remaining sections, 1 and 3, make
some small but helpful clarifications.

Also as promised, the department opposed the same aspects of the
Tieszen amendment that homeschool advocates opposed.

We expect that the bill in its current form will not be controversial.
No further phone calls are therefore needed at this time. HSLDA will
continue to monitor the bill to make sure harmful amendments are not
inserted later.

Matthew Irwin spoke at the hearing on behalf of the members of South
Dakota Christian Home Educators. His testimony was pivotal in making
sure the harmful Tieszen amendment was not added. The testimony of
Bobbi J. Rank, general counsel for the Department of Education, was
also very important.

If you are not already a member of South Dakota Christian Home
Educators, please consider joining to support their important mission
for homeschool freedom in South Dakota. There is no fee for joining:

Thank you for standing with us for liberty!

Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

Research can be grueling-digging through archives, wading through
articles, conducting interviews. But if it's related to
homeschooling, you can relax a little. There's a good chance that
you'll find what you're looking for in HSLDA's bimonthly
Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.
