1. Romney Adds Voice in Parental Rights Battle

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently joined Home
School Legal Defense Association in "unequivocal" opposition to the UN
Convention on the Rights of the Child. This treaty undermines U.S.
sovereignty and erodes parental rights, freedoms which Romney declares
"have been at the heart of our historic rise to world leadership." And
while HSLDA has not endorsed any candidate for president this year, we
applaud Gov. Romney for his strong stance on this very important issue
for parents.

2. Continue Calls to Stop Dangerous UN Treaty

With only two weeks left until the summer work period in Congress, and
with a vote on CRPD looming Thursday, HSLDA and ParentalRights.org
urge calls to the House and Senate to protect your children and your
rights.

3. Iowa: Student's Right to Free College Courses Defended

HSLDA had to explain to public school officials that the law does
indeed allow homeschoolers access to a program with free
post-secondary courses.
