Kansas City: Daytime Curfew Battle--Victory is Near!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for your awesome love of liberty! Your action in defense of
freedom, and the effective work of Families for Home Education, has
resulted in the complete abandonment of all efforts to impose a
daytime curfew in Kansas City, MO!

Discussions with Councilman Scott Wagner, the former daytime curfew
proponent, have resulted in a proposed ordinance that discards the
curfew concept. Instead, the new draft, identified as "ORDINANCE NO.
120180, AS AMENDED," takes Missouri's state compulsory attendance law and
incorporates it nearly verbatim into the Kansas City ordinances. The
right to move about freely during the day is not compromised.

It includes some enforcement provisions that will make it easier for
authorities to hold public school students and their parents
accountable for obvious truancy. But these provisions should be of
little concern to homeschool families. Your compliance with state law
will automatically satisfy the draft ordinance.

We are therefore not requesting any action at this time. However, if
you wish to attend Thursday's City Council meeting to witness the
conclusion of this battle firsthand, it will take place in City Hall
on Thursday, May 3, at 3:00 p.m.

Sincerely,


Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's Federal Relations Department is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
