Daytime Curfew Gone!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Home School Legal Defense Association assisted Cedar Park
homeschoolers in successfully defeating an existing daytime curfew.
Recently, the Cedar Park City Council unanimously decided to repeal
its daytime curfew law. The existing ordinance was intended to fight
public school truancy, but it also affected homeschool students by
limiting their rights and exposing them to harassment. The curfew
allowed the police to stop and question any individual under 17 who
was in a public place during school hours.

HSLDA notified homeschoolers in the Cedar Park area that the curfew
was being reconsidered and encouraged them to testify against it.
Local homeschool activists spearheaded the opposition. Hoping to sway
a majority of the council members to oppose the ordinance,
homeschoolers in Cedar Park testified concerning the negative effects
they experienced from the daytime curfew in two public hearings. But
the vote went beyond our expectations: the curfew was repealed

Other Texas cities have some form of daytime curfews. If you are
interested in defeating a proposed 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 daytime curfews,
review our Strategy Packet for Defeating Daytime Curfews .

HSLDA's help in defeating daytime curfews has extended around the
country. Use this website ,
created independently by a lifetime HSLDA member in San Luis Obispo
County, California, as a model for consolidating opposition to daytime
curfews that diminish homeschooling freedom.

We greatly value you and your support! If you or someone you know is
not a member of HSLDA, please consider joining or recommending us

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
