House Bill 4250 is a Threat to Homeschool Freedom

Dear Michigan Members and Friends,

If passed, House Bill ("HB") 4250 would require parents to register
their homeschool students with both local school district and the
Department of Education. Although we're not asking you to take action
now, please read this e-lert for important information about your
freedom.

Homeschoolers are not currently required to register in Michigan, and
this proposed regulation would unnecessarily burden our homeschooling
freedoms. HSLDA opposes this bill and is working with Citizens for
Traditional Values, INCH, the Home Education League of Michigan, and
homeschool advocate attorney David Kallman to stop the bill from
moving forward.

You can view or print the introduced bill from the Michigan
Legislature website here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id= 17231 .
The bill is currently in the House Education Committee where we expect
it will be sharply rejected. Therefore, we are not asking for any
action at this time. However, please stay tuned for further
information about this bill should action be required.

HSLDA is opposing numerous attempts by state legislatures all over the
country seeking to impose additional, and in some cases draconian,
burdens on homeschooling families. Whether it is requiring
"behavioral health assessments" for homeschoolers (CT), state-approved
assessments (SC), increasing reporting requirements (MN) or "simple
registration" (MI), among others, it is critical that we continue to
stand together to defend our freedoms.

Your membership with HSLDA and support of our partners in Michigan as
listed above allow us to be able secure your freedom now and for our
future generations. If you or someone you know is not a member of
HSLDA, will you consider taking a moment today to join or recommend
us? Your support for our work enables us to defend individual families
threatened by government officials and protect homeschooling freedom
for all. Join now >> http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id= 17232


Very truly yours,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
