West Virginia Home School Day

February 21, 2013

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Good news for homeschoolers in West Virginia! This week, the West
Virginia House of Delegates adopted House Resolution 11 and the West
Virginia State Senate adopted Senate Resolution 14 to designate
February 19, 2013 as "West Virginia Home School Day."

In the House, the resolution was sponsored by Delegates Boggs,
Espinosa, Staggers, Rowan, O'Neal, Sobonya, Pasdon, Householder,
Walker and Sumner. The Senate resolution was sponsored by Senators
Sypolt, Unger, Plymale, Fitzsimmons, Beach and Carmichael. You can
find their contact information to thank them for their interest and
support here:

The resolutions recognize "that parental involvement and
individualized attention to educational success are unique and basic
components of home schooling" and that "Home-schooled students exhibit
self-confidence and good citizenship and are prepared academically to
meet the challenges of today's society." It is this recognition that
spurs the legislature to praise the "students, teachers and families
involved with home schooling in West Virginia for their dedication to
excellence in education."

website. Click here to view the House Resolution:

Thank you so much for your support of homeschooling and homeschool
freedom. It is your investment in the lives and education of the next
generation that inspires recognition and praise.

Montani semper liberi,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
