Missouri--Full Force Needed March 21
against Kansas City Daytime Curfew

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The gauntlet has been thrown down to you. Councilman Wagner has
submitted a new draft curfew ordinance that is just as bad as--or
worse than--the original one.

But taking a stand for freedom, Councilman Sharp has submitted an
entirely different plan: one that involves enforcing existing
attendance law rather than making it a crime for a young adult to be
in public.

The proposals of Councilman Sharp and Councilman Wagner represent two
different ways of life. Wagner's ratchets up government power and
creates a disgraceful atmosphere in which young adults may be
intimidated into hiding during the day. Sharp's, on the other hand,
makes the protection of inalienable rights a priority.

One of these two ways of life may prevail on Wednesday at the next
committee meeting.

And it cannot be doubted that if a daytime curfew becomes ensconced in
Kansas City, other towns will try to follow suit. After all, the
current proponents of the curfew are saying Kansas City should follow
the examples of daytime curfews in some smaller nearby towns.

Councilman Sharp needs your help!


If you live in Kansas City, or ever plan to visit there with your
children, please attend the meeting of the Public Safety and Emergency
Services Committee Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. The location is City Hall,
26th floor, 414 East 12th St., Kansas City, MO.

Remember to be calm and courteous. A respectful attitude sends a
powerful message. Small children (strollers, diaper bags) should not
be brought.

Parking will be difficult, so allow extra time. Consider car pooling.
No knives, pepper spray, etc., may be brought in.


Wagner's new draft is known a "V1." Sharp has submitted two drafts:
"V2" and "V2b." They can be viewed by going to this link The version known as V2 is
best. We will be asking Sharp to urge the adoption of V2.

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

Families for Home Education and HSLDA are united in opposing daytime
curfews. Thank you for standing with us for freedom in Missouri!

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

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:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
