Victory for Homeschoolers in Defeating Daytime Curfew Proposal

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Home School Legal Defense Association assisted San Luis Obispo
homeschoolers in successfully defeating a proposed daytime curfew.
HSLDA has just learned that the Board of Supervisors dropped the
proposal this past Monday, March 26, 2012.

In January 2012, the San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors considered
implementing a daytime curfew. The ordinance was intended to fight
public school truancy, but would have targeted homeschool students by
limiting their rights and exposing them to harassment. The proposal
allowed the police to stop and question any individuals under 18 who
were in a public place during school hours.

On January 17, 2012, homeschoolers in San Luis Obispo County turned up
en masse to a Board of Supervisors' meeting to oppose the curfew.
According to some witnesses, because of the number of homeschoolers
who attended the meeting, there was standing room only. HSLDA followed
up the meeting with a letter to the Board of Supervisors, reiterating
the harm daytime curfews cause to homeschool students. Based on the
opposition, the Board of Supervisors deferred their consideration of
the ordinance and on March 26, 2012, dropped the proposal.

The efforts of local activists and homeschoolers were directly
responsible for the daytime curfew's defeat. Mikhail Ganage, a local
volunteer coordinator, and Say No to Daytime Curfews, a website created
specifically to oppose the San Luis Obispo curfew, consolidated
opposition and disseminated updates about the curfew's status.

Many California cities have some form of daytime curfews. If you are
interested in defeating a daytime curfew in your area, check out the
facts behind daytime curfews in our Issues Library If you want ideas and
inspiration for how to organize politically to defeat an existing
daytime curfew or oppose a proposed daytime curfew, you may want to
review our "Strategy Packet for Defeating Daytime Curfews ."

We greatly value you and your support! If you or someone you know is
