Kansas City: Decisive Daytime Curfew Victory

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

As expected, yesterday the odious daytime curfew idea was abandoned,
and the City Council of Kansas City, MO instead adopted a municipal
truancy ordinance that parallels state compulsory attendance law.

Homeschool families have once more been the sharp point of the spear
in protecting liberty, by the grace of God, for all. No other
organized voice of opposition was raised.

One of the best ways to protect a particular right is to keep on using
it. We encourage you to exercise your freedom of movement in a
responsible way. Young people enjoying the city during public school
hours should consider carrying a cell phone, with a parent quickly
accessible, in the event that a police officer mistakes them for a
truant public school student.

If you ever believe your rights have been violated by the way the new
municipal truancy law is enforced, please contact us immediately.

As you have an opportunity, consider sending a note of thanks to Brad
Haines of Families for Home Education for his highly effective work on
this issue, and to Councilman John A. Sharp, whose support was

If you live outside of Kansas City, MO, watch your local government
like a hawk, and let us know if another daytime curfew plan is slipped
into the agenda. We have no way of knowing unless you tell us.

Thank you for standing with us for liberty!

never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
