-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.

2. On the Case: Looking out for the Least of These

When the state neglected to update a homeschooling family about a new
policy and stopped their benefits, we resolved the situation by
mediating between the law, the family, and the agency.

3. Colorado: Librarian Rebuffs Parent to "Protect" Privacy ... of
9-Year-Old

HSLDA contacted a public library after a staff member refused to tell
a homeschool mom what books her son had borrowed. We showed that the
library policy did not reflect state law.
