Missouri--Update-- Kansas City Daytime Curfew Hits Speed Bump

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Homeschoolers turned out in force Wednesday morning to strongly oppose
the proposed Kansas City daytime curfew.

Brad Haines of Families for Home Education testified against the
ordinance, along with many others. Here are excerpts from Brad's
report about the hearing.

"I did not get an actual head count, but ran an 'estimate' and it was
well over 100 home educators and students. I was so blessed to meet as
many of you as possible, and words cannot describe the pride and
appreciation I felt for each of you ... the sponsor brought a
'substitute ordinance' to attempt to correct the many deficiencies in
the one posted on line ... the sponsor admitted he didn't need the
ordinance to pass, since he could accomplish his goals with current
STATE law .... The homeschoolers were enthusiastic in their
opposition, but polite and courteous. Excellent representation of the
homeschool community!"

Daytime curfews never live up to their promises. And they hurt
homeschool families more than others because we allow our children
free time while public schools are in session.

Homeschoolers have been harassed and frightened by policemen who treat
them like suspected criminals for doing nothing more than being in
public.

After we have reviewed the substitute ordinance, we will get accurate
information to Missouri homeschool families.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom in Missouri!

Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science

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.
